All first generation Americans and their immigrant parents should read this book. It is a road map and chronicle of how to achieve the American dream from the experiences, successes and failures growing up in a middle class Jewish Brooklyn ghetto to achieving personal, economic and professional recognition.
The book will help recent first-generation Americans and their families to better understand the struggle to balance ethnic family values, the complexities and anxieties of the teenage years, and the pressures to fit into American culture. Young people will come to understand the profound value of education, and mentorship when planning a career.
Through the journey and zany adventures of the author, the reader can identify with the trials, tribulations, successes, anxieties, insecurities, and failures of growing into adulthood, assuming responsibility for oneself, marrying and raising children, and managing the delicate balances between personal, family, and professional issues while achieving the American dream.
