Whenever we met people who have high status, good salary and happy family, we always say he had it easy. He has all of thing in this world. But we never know the process he faces to be on that position. We never knew how much he sacrifices and suffered before being happy. This book totally show the great lesson and I would love to adventure author's memory. Thank you for great review. Definitely will read it to know author better.

It's not often that a memoir leaves one feeling like the story was wholesomely told. This book will help people get an insight into what it means to live in the clutches of a parent who falls below par when it comes to parenting.

I'm excited to read this after reading your review. I rarely read memoirs but I'm intrigued to learn how John is able to rise above his upbringing and make a fantastic life for himself.

Executive Hoodlum by John Costello.
JOHN COSTELLO, You are a model....
You just made us realize that our Background does not determine our future. Allow me to put it this way, "do not allow your background to put your back on the ground". Thank you John Costello for sharing your experience. And the reason why i said that he is a model is this; here is a successful man with 6 billion worth, and a vice president of an organisation, sharing his life experience for others to learn, emulate, teach to others and become successful. This is awesome and inspiring. John Costello is worthy of emulation, that is why he is a model. if you want to be inspired to be successful in life, no matter your backgrounds, then read EXECUTIVE HOODLUM. Its a book for all.

I think this one might be one for me to add to my shelf after reading your review. This sounds very interesting for those that enjoy that sort of thing and I am one of them!

It's been a long time since I read a memoir, so I think that the time finally came.

I quite agree with the review that the characters are strong. From the little that I've read, the language is easy and fluid. I love historical fiction especially historical romance. And I'll definitely enjoy reading this one. Thanks for a detailed review.
