Musician Chris "Manafest" Greenwood lost his father to suicide at the age of five, and found himself with nothing to cling to but a single mom and his childhood dream of moving to California to become a professional skateboarder. But God had different plans; by the age of 18 Chris fell in love with hip-hop music and quit his corporate job to join the ranks of Toronto's competitive underground hip hop scene, choosing the name Manafest as a reflection of his goal to manifest his dreams. After years of fighting for success in one of the toughest industries in the world, he found himself living in his dream- a 3-time JUNO award nominee, Top 10 Billboard charted rock artist, living in southern California, selling hundreds of thousands of records worldwide.
Named after his highest charted song, Fighter, this book is the story of how Chris conquered his fears and found success in five stages, which he calls the anatomy of a fighter-courage, perseverance, mindset, discipline, and willpower-the five resources we can all draw on in order to reach our dreams, no matter what they are. The message is simple; we have to replace fear with faith. If God can do something great with a skate punk from Pickering Ontario, imagine what he can do with your life!

AFellowCanuckEnglehart, OntarioAge: 25-34Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Absolutely AmazingApril 21, 2014AFellowCanuckEnglehart, OntarioAge: 25-34Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5We all have fears in our lives, fear of not reaching what we should be reaching, fear of not doing this or that because of something, the fears and lies that Satan puts inside of our minds that we try not to believe, we need to punch fear in the face and get rid of believe any of it.
This book does exactly that, it goes through different ways that can help you conquer the fear inside of you, making the person that God intended you to be. The one thing that I really loved about this book was all of the true and personal stories that Manafest tells us through his life and how he got rid of the fear inside of him to grow to be the person that he is today. It's his life story, all of the hardships theta he faced, the struggles and all of the life lessons that he learned along the way.
This is one book that had me drawn in to every page and, like a lot of other reviews for this book, this, I couldn't put down because I like real and true stories.

mountainsAlberta CanadaAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Very inspirational and practical!March 21, 2014mountainsAlberta CanadaAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Christopher Greenwood, aka Manafest, is a Christian rap/rock artist originally from Canada. His loud voice of inspiration is for anyone who has a dream.
Chris' story tells of the pain of his childhood from his father's suicide, the frustrations of his growing up years from not fitting in and into his young adult years of how an injury tossed all his hopes and dreams away. Chris is a fighter and he managed to take the steps necessary to truly make lemonade out of his lemons.
If you have a dream, either one you have never pursued or one that is tainted by failure you should read this inspirational story. Fighter lays out five concrete steps for moving towards your goals and overcoming the emotional tidal waves that often come our way. Chris uses his life story as examples as well as famous quotes, inspiration from the Bible, and the lives of others who inspired him. Each of the chapters defining the five steps also concludes with a journal page for the reader to put down their thoughts. This translates each particular step into action.
I've seen Manafest perform live and gotten a glimpse into Chris' heart for encouragement. He is a very hands-on artist, trying to interact with the teens that file in and out of his concerts. I believe God is using the stage he's placed Chris on to change and mold many lives. His book will be no different. And as of yesterday Chris has entered the world of fatherhood - I am certain more gems are on the way soon. (Congrats Chris and Melanie!)
The book is a very easy read. The language is very simple; I passed the book onto to my kids.
Check it out! Fighter is a powerful reminder that giving up on our dreams isn't an option.
