More About the Author

WILLIAM T. HOSTON, Ph.D., is a professor, author, motivational speaker, poet, and documentarian who hails from New Orleans, Louisiana. He is associate professor of political science at the University of Houston - Clear Lake. Dr. Hoston received his Ph.D. from the University of New Orleans (UNO) in 2007.

He is the author of numerous publications, which range in topic from minority voting behavior, political behavior of African-American politicians, and theories and dynamics of racism and oppression. Dr. Hoston has penned a total of six books, most recently: Listen to Me Now, or Listen to Me Later, 2nd Edition (2014); Black Masculinity in the Obama Era: Outliers of Society (2014); and No Bullies in the Huddle (2013). He is currently completing two academic books: (1) The End of a Black Empowerment Period in New Orleans: 1978-2010 and (2) The Secret Life of Mr. Waller: Essays on Race, Crime, and the Black Male Subculture.

In 2013, Dr. Hoston released the documentary, "Black Dot in a White World: Critical Discourse Among Black Males in the Obama Era," which expands the discussion of the economic, social, and political plight of black males in the Obama Era. It features the likes of Civil Rights Icon, John Lewis; Educator, Dr. Steve Perry; Urban League President, Marc Morial; Rap Icon, Master P and his son, Romeo, and a host of others that discuss what it means to be a black male in the 21st century and the impact of living in the Obama Era (http://vimeo.com/73945114).

Dr. Hoston has proved his dedication and commitment to empowering youth and college students to have a brighter future, which was recognized by UHCL as he was the recipient of the 2013 Minnie Stevens Piper Award for outstanding teaching. He also was ranked in the 2012 - 2013 academic year as the 19th best college professor in America according to RateMyProfessor.com. Dr. Hoston's motto is, "I just want to be an example. Many have come before me and hopefully those that come after will be inspired by the example that I have set."

This book is a wonderful read full of great motivational inspiration to help you realize "dreams" do take hard work , but to not get discouraged with little setbacks. Instead use them to make your success even greater by proving to yourself how much your drive is to be the "best" you can be in life.

Format: Paperback
My first semester at the university was bewildering, indeed - I was but one, amongst thousands, and lost. I took 6 courses. I made 6 Fs. Second semester I again took 6 courses. A kindly instructor dropped me from one course, so I only made 5 Fs this time. I left the university with my head hung low.

I joined the Marines, got married, became a cop, lived life, finally returned to the university and to my dismay discovered I had been kicked out. I had to petition to get back in. I was re-admitted on probation.

Ten years later, a 3 page transcript (because I withdrew from so many courses), a bi-modal distribution of As and Fs, I finally earned a Bachelor's degree in Psychology. Ten years, of being the best (Dean's List), and the worst (Probation, Ds, Fs, Withdrawals and Incompletes). College never was an easy walk for me.

Oh, as a Frosh, I was forced to take a "How To Study" course. I learned mechanical techniques such as, SQ3R, etc. But something was missing. I was still feeling terribly alone, and I still faced daily feelings of hopelessness.

Oh how I could've used then what you've told me now, about your own journey Dr. Hoston. It would've helped, greatly. I had no idea any of my professors might ever have faced what I was facing.

Dr. Hoston's book is the melody of a man generously opening his soul, his most private thoughts and experiences, to others, so they might walk along with him, no longer alone in their struggle to grow, to learn, to achieve. "If I can do it, so can you," he tells the reader. And he shares with you just how he managed, how he dealt with the many obstacles along his rocky path.

Professor Hoston is no effete academe. He came from a challenging, highly dysfunctional background.
