An abused child of Cuban refugees, a drug-dealing teenager, an addict, and an entrepreneur. Jose Del Cueto emerged from the depths of adversity and now struggles with trauma-induced learning disabilities. His journey has taught him the humility, mindfulness, and compassion it takes to be the loving family man he is today.
"Medical research on trauma-induced ADHD predicts a poor outcome in adult life, yet Joe’s story is of hope for millions of people who endured childhood trauma and the learning disabilities or substance abuse derived therefrom.” —Michael J. Marchese, M.D.
“When you sense that something is wrong with you but don’t know what it is, an answer can really help you lead a better life by putting things in perspective. I am grateful to have found my answer.” —Joe Del Cueto

Great read helps to remember that not all kids lived a normal life and to be grateful for what you have.
This book was great. I loved how smooth and easy it was to read without ever feeling like I had to put it down. The stuff we go through in childhood has such long-lasting affects if we don't put a stop to it. This is a great story of overcoming obstacles. I tried ordering a couple more copies as Christmas presents but BN is out of stock.
