    "A very special story about life and love and courage."

    John Harding had a high-powered career, a loving wife, and a beautiful son. He's lost it all and has returned to his home town of Boland, New Hampshire, teetering on the brink of suicide. But an old friend asks John to manage his old Little League team, the Angels. Reluctantly, he agrees, and meets a hopeless player who bears a striking resemblance to his dead son--and through their extroardinary relationship, John finds the wisdom in living that he thought had slipped beyond his grasp forever....

    This foray into fiction by the bestselling inspirational and self-help author ( The Greatest Salesman in the World ) is a slim, formulaic tearjerker. The story is one of grief, courage and emotional rejuvenation. In his early 40s, John Harding returns to his New Hampshire hometown as president of a large and powerful computer firm located in nearby Concord. His life seems nearly perfect until his wife and son are killed in an auto accident. Paralyzed with grief, Harding sinks into near-suicidal depression. Then a childhood friend who has been recuperating from bypass surgery convinces him to coach their old Little League team--the Angels. In this capacity Harding meets Timothy Noble, the 12th and last player to make the team. Timothy, who recites self-affirmations and carries around a "never-give-up" attitude, provides the ultimate inspiration for Harding. But from there on out the cliches pile up until what we get is a two-dimensional Little League version of the Lou Gehrig story. Even Mandino's devoted following may be disappointed.

    Book Description
    This is a story about the triumph of the human spirit in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds, When John Harding's wife and son are killed in a car accident, he loses the will to go on. But encouraged by a friend to coach the local Little League team, Bob finds an unexpected source of inspiration in an uncoordinated, pint-sized 11-year-rid named Timothy Noble. This kid is a slow runner, a poor batter and a mediocre fielder, but he won't give up. His tenacity, and, even more importantly, his faith in himself, is a lesson to all those around him. A modern parable of love and courage, persistence and victory, The Twelfth Angel will touch and inspire listeners everywhere.
    Read by: Margaret Klenck, Stephen Newman, Noah Segan, and Robert Sevra, and with thanks to the Little Leaguers of New York's Bank Street, I.S. 44 and Trinity Schools.

  • 『 What's my life worth? How could I possibly repay him for the candle he lit in my life? 』


  • 『十二番目の天使』の原書です。今では原書で読むことの方が断然多いです。NY滞在中に何度も書店に通って読み、感動のあまり涙が止まらなくなるほどの温かさを感じました。Og Mandinoの綴る言葉をそのまま感じることで、更にこの物語の強いメッセージが心に響きます。比較的易しい文章なので、英語の好きな高校生にもお勧め。「Day by day in every way I'm getting better and better!!」

  • 読み終わりました。読む前から内容はわかってたようなもんなんだけど、やはり泣かされてしまった。うーん、なんて言えばいいのかな、あまりに読めてしまう展開で物足りなかった。好きではないかも。英語はとても平易で読みやすい。高校生なんかが読むといいんじゃないでしょうか。

  • 人生に躓いたとき、「Never Give up!」精神で考えて欲しい。そんな本です。マインドコントロールの大切さも分かります。精神はすべてを上回る。

  • 12番目の天使の原書です。(*^o^)乂(^-^*)
