Indie Book of the Day

“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


Kirkus Reviews:

featured in Science Magazine—chronicles the unlikely story of a young Egyptian who emigrated 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.
