What Audiences Have Said
About Matthew

"Sometimes in life, we have bad days, then there are those other times where it feels like life just hit us square in the face and knocked us to the ground.

Starting at the Finish Line is one man's inspiring story of what you do when you find yourself on the ground. This book is a testament to all because, on occasion, we all face hard times, but as Matt Newman's story will show, it's not about the hard times we face, it's about how we react to them."
