"Growing Up ... In Words and Images" is the true and evocative story of Joe Barry Carroll, a seven-foot-tall  Purdue All-American, overall first round NBA draft pick, turned wealth advisor, painter, author, and philanthropist. Carroll’s southern-comfort prose and impressionistic paintings lend a reminiscent and familiar quality to a uniquely individual story.

 

As the tenth of thirteen children Joe seemed “to not be enough of any one particular thing to be the right thing.” After witnessing his mother’s defeat, as one after another dream died, young Joe resolved to make it all better one day. And he did.

“Carroll is thoughtful and earnest, showing sincere gratitude for the life he has. This is a careful retrospective of a whole man, not just an athlete.”

- Publishers Weekly

 

Joe Barry Carroll's Growing Up is poetic, strong, fragile, and honest. It tells universal stories that flow, and move us and remind us how resilient the human spirit can be.

- Kenny Leon, Tony Award-winning Broadway stage, Television and Film Director

 

It is an unflinching look at the events, both good and bad, that shape a life - the choices made, and the effects of those choices; all relayed in a nuanced, almost lyrical writing style that makes this book an engaging read.
