Editorial Reviews

Review

"An intelligent, honestly written memoir of immigration." -- Kirkus Reviews 
"Throughout the book, the author shines equal light on his own struggles to fully realize his dreams as he does on some painful, embarrassing aspects of the United States immigration system."-- Kirkus Reviews 

"Outlier, outlaw, outcast: The improbable scientific career of Tamer Elsayed"--Jeffrey Mervis, Science Magazine
"Elsayed has just self-published an autobiography, Inadmissible. It is not your usual story of a life in science. In frank and poignant prose ..."--Jeffrey Mervis, Science Magazine
"Once he was incarcerated, however, survival skills took precedence over book learning. He learned to endure all manner of random violence ..."--Jeffrey Mervis, Science Magazine
"The Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the Georgia Institute of Technology, the University of Michigan, and the University of Southern California also wanted him."--Jeffrey Mervis, Science Magazine
"Even more painful, he writes, is the inspiration for the book's title: a permanent ban on returning to the United States, where his young daughter lives ..."--Jeffrey Mervis, Science Magazine

About the Author

Dr. Tamer Elsayed received his bachelor's degree from Cal Poly Pomona and master's and doctorate degrees from Caltech--the number one ranked university in the world--all in mechanical engineering. He has published more than 30 scientific papers in the fields of computational solid mechanics and high performance computing, and his work has been widely referenced by fellow academics in various scientific journals and conferences.

His recent memoir, INADMISSIBLE, tells the story of his emigration from Egypt to the U.S. in pursuit of the American dream, and how one mistake landed him behind bars along with some of America's most notorious offenders. Against innumerable odds, he manages to survive prison and later earns his PhD from the world's number one university--Caltech--becoming an accomplished scientist, writer, and motivational speaker. It's the true tale of one man's redemption and triumph, lived through believing in himself and believing in the good hearts of the people who stuck by him.
