Dr. Hoston has penned a total of eight books, most recently: Race and the Black Male Subculture: The Lives of Toby Waller (in press - 2016); RNIT (2015); 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 - Philadelphia, 2015 - Redskins).

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 (

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.
