Book Details

GET UP AND… FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT!

Dr. Harry Holiday, the son of a sharecropper and one of eleven children, grew up in the South during the fifties and sixties, when segregation was alive and well. Determined to gain the education his parents had not had the opportunity for, he joined the army and went to college. “Doc” Holiday encountered racism and prejudice, poverty and tragedy throughout his life, but he was determined not to allow others to negatively impact him. He swallowed his pride, continued to strive for success, and vowed to live another day. In his inspirational autobiography, Doc Holiday describes the overwhelming odds he faced to become a dentist and a career soldier. But the most important event in his life was being born again and becoming a son in God’s Kingdom. “Although I made many mistakes, I had to look myself squarely in the face and take responsibility for the good and the bad results of my actions. Now that I have obtained success, I must help others in need, or this success will be incomplete. Since I am a Christian, helping others to better their lives is not an option.” Today, Doc Holiday regularly challenges and inspires the children in his church to “shake off the cobwebs, eat your vitamins, say your prayers, and get back in the ring and fight!”
