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.

This book is a great motivator for those who are heading into college or those who are debating about going back to college. This book is great for any age group; it speaks to those who are going to be experiencing the trial and tribulations of college. And those who have already experienced college and are not feeling confident enough or are embarrassed to go back to college because of the age range is so different. I liked how he included goals for you to reflect on and the goals to start striving towards to make all of your dreams and goals become reality. I also liked how he was able to speak freely about his life experiences and still maintain a positive attitude even when he felt like he was at his lowest points in his goals. He went through many trials and tribulations through his life that was expressed in this book and each time he was tested he was able to move forward with a positive attitude and he was still able his dreams become reality. So overall this is an excellent book to read for everyone and it is a positive motivator to those who want to be successful in college. This book will help anyone become successful and stay motivated in achieving all their goals.
