Jay Williams’ LIFE IS NOT AN ACCIDENT reminds us of the benefits of the lessons life teaches us
As someone who doesn’t follow sports that much, I honestly had no idea who Jason “Jay” Williams was before reading this book in May 2016—-and for me, that was a good thing. I was able to come to LIFE IS NOT AN ACCIDENT without any preconceived ideas of him or his story, and just allow him to guide us through his journey in his own way. And that is exactly what Jay achieves in the book.
I found myself immediately drawn into the order and chaos around him, as well as the decisions that were made that could destroy him or bring him to a new level of greatness. I think Jay Williams has seen a bit of it all: he knows what it’s like to rise and fall and still come out changed for the better on the other side. What he has experienced has definitely made him a human being that can be more empathetic to the plight of others and aware of how easily things can change for us all.
Whether it is discussing what was going on in his household growing up, his love for the game and what it took to push him or the vices that could have been his undoing, Williams opens up to us the reader in a way that many wouldn’t have the courage to do, and because of that his story is sure to change lives.
A book of highs, lows and ultimately forgiveness and redemption, LIFE IS NOT AN ACCIDENT reminds us that everything in life is a part of the lessons that make us who we are.
