Because of a childhood filled with sexual abuse and molestation at the hands of a pedophile, Carter Lee was later in life diagnosed with PTSD; paired with violence and intimidation throughout school, he was pre-destined to become a monster. Against all odds, Carter took control of his destiny and chose to endure his own transformation into the successful and peaceful man he is today. When Jonathan Cried For Me is a tremendous story of struggle, redemption, heartbreak, and self-loathing transforming into self-love and respect.
For most of his life, Carter Lee struggled with a low self-esteem, unhealthy self-confidence, increasingly in-docile anger issues, and his weight. After his wife left him, taking her son with her, Carter Lee hit rock bottom. Deciding to persevere on, he became determined to find a way to transcend through his trauma on a journey to find a genuine inner transformation.
Carter reveals the methods and his philosophy in life that led him to freedom; he no longer shows signs of PTSD or depression, no longer struggles with maintaining a healthy weight, and has managed to overcome his insecurities from being sexually abused and molested at the hands of a pedophile. Carter Lee found the way to a transformation involving a true-self-esteem and total-self-confidence. Carter covers his views and philosophies on anger, religion, dating, quantum mechanics; along with revealing how the mind receives and perceives information and how it affects us physiologically. From the very first sentence to the last: When Jonathan Cried For Me promises to inspire you by making you laugh, moving you emotionally, question your own belief system, and want to search for more meaning in life.
Carter Lee is blatantly honest about his inner demons and wears his heart on his sleeve. More than just a motivational, inspiring, educating, or entertaining read, this book transcends any one genre by coalescing strengths of each form into a powerful teaching tool. He is witty, unconventional, and has a knack for describing highly technical mental processes in layman’s terms. Sometimes controversially, but always with honesty, Carter Lee delivers what so many of us need: a real way to facilitate internal change and transformation through his masterpiece: When Jonathan Cried For Me.

This is a highly charged and emotional issue and for Carter to have developed the tools to bring this out, discuss this openly – particularly at this time with Sandusky and Fine – is powerful and important. It makes me believe that we all know people who have and are suffering in silence…for any person dealing with anger, self doubt or feeling overwhelmed, it’s an eyeopener and life changer…we can all walk away with a lesson learned of not only self awareness but those around us that may need our understanding.

I just started reading this book and I can tell you that he tackles a very difficult topic in a refreshing and blunt way. Plus Carter is often very funny, and his wry outlook keeps the book grounded. Plus it’s well-written. This is one book that everyone should read, especially in light of the sex abuse scandals rocking the athletic world.

Call it motivational, call it inspirational, call it educational; but above all, this book demonstrates the sheer power of simple perseverance. Sure, the language can get a little rough, but this is a rough topic to discuss. After all the cases in the news, we should no longer be shocked that child abuse exists. We should be shocked we haven’t done more to stop it.
