#1 New York Times bestselling author and renowned radio and television host Glenn Beck delivers an instant holiday classic about boyhood memories, wrenching life lessons, and the true meaning of the gifts we give to one another in love.

If you could change your life by reversing your biggest regrets, sorrows, and mistakes...would you?

When Eddie was twelve years old, all he wanted for Christmas was a bike. He knew money had been tight since his father died, but Eddie dreamed that somehow his mother would find a way to afford that dream bike.

What he got from her instead was a sweater. “A stupid, handmade, ugly sweater” that young Eddie left in a crumpled ball in the corner of his room.

Scarred deeply by the fateful events that transpired that day, Eddie begins a dark and painful journey toward manhood. It will take wrestling with himself, his faith, and his family—and the guidance of a mysterious neighbor named Russell—to help Eddie find his life’s path and finally understand the significance of that simple gift his mother had crafted with love.

anyone who has parents should read this book. Anyone who has struggled through their teen years. especially directed towards young men, anyone of any age or gender will identify with this character and enjoy reading this book. just like eddie, the main character, keep going after the first big disappointment. It really is just the beginning. I almost gave up on eddie after that. i didn't think i could continue. but i'm so glad i did! I couldn't put the book down

This is a great book filled with reminiscing for baby boomer age folks like me! I can relate to a lot of the environment Ed grew up in. He was feeling sorry for himself like so many kids do, then a series of events brought him back around. My kids wanted to stay in the car and listen even after we got home... This probably doesn't appeal to the desensitized over stimulated reader (especially without family) - but it appealed very much to me and my family. Perhaps those who don't like it see themselves in the angry Ed?

Non-political. It is the sweetest most heart warming and gut wrenching book I've read in a long time! Absolutely WONDERFUL!

Absolutely horrible. Do not waste your time. Beck tries to promote himself as a man of the people. His recklessness is even evident in this poor excuse of a publication.

Boring and . . . . just boring. Poorly written and badly read.

This book was GREAT!! Funny, touching, thought provoking, surprising. I enjoyed listening to this story, especially the relationship with Eddie and his Grandfather. The story makes you think about all the things that people in your life sacrafice for you and what they would do for you and how much you would miss it when it's gone.
