The above are ingredients presented in this book as key for becoming successful and significant. They are woven through the story of nineteen year old Tony as he finds his way out of jail and into a life of achievement and meaning. It is based on actual events.

In addition to Tony’s narrative, there is a chapter with advice on how to find – or be – a mentor, a list of 135 action steps, and a six and a half page list of books that further elaborate the principles in the story.

The author, Tom Pace, who once read only at the fourth grade level, and had only $62.53 as working capital, became the founder and CEO of a multi-million international corporation. His drive to write this book, he said, was to “Give people hope.” He should know.
