A Book Everyone Should Read

At first, I thought it was another sad book about the underserved people in areas of the south and I didn't care to read more of that. But instead, it is a wonderful book about the writer striving and overcoming his growing up years in Eastern Kentucky and, while keeping his good and not so good memories of family and the poverty of his surroundings, overcome all to join the Marine Corps, then using that training and discipline to go on to become an Ivy League lawyer. Instead of running away from his past to become an Eastern elite, he chose to take another path and use his considerable talents to contribute in other ways. Having lived a somewhat similar early life in small town middle Illinois, I related strongly to this story. It is moving and one of the best books I have read in a long time. I hope this is not the author's one and only book.
