The Most Unlikely Leader
An Unbelievable Journey From GED to CEO
I rate this book 4 out of 4 because it was exceptionally well edited. I recommend this book first to parents. This book reminds them that any neglect can get their child damaged. Also for teens, this book teaches them that regardless of their circumstances and how debasing their situation is, they can still achieve success. Finally, this book is a perfect fit for anyone seeking to improve his or her life.

The arc of Smith’s life is extraordinary – he managed to become an accomplished businessperson and family man after years of drug-addled purposelessness. His candor is also remarkable – he spares no punches when it comes to self-judgement and chronicles of foibles in granular detail.

Nothing is as good as it seems and nothing is as bad as it seems. So your highs aren’t really as high — or they shouldn’t be, and your lows aren’t really as low. This too shall pass.
