How to Quickly Learn the Magic of Writing Success For most of my adult life I have been engaged in the writing, the editing, or the criticizing of fiction. I took, and I still take, the writing of fiction seriously. So I make no apology for writing seriously about the problems of fiction writers. I have had firsthand experience with almost every current ""approach"" to the problems of writing. The difficulties of the average student or amateur writer begin long before he has come to the place where he can benefit by technical instruction in story writing. He had longed to hear that there was some magic about writing, and to be initiated into the brotherhood of authors. This book, I believe, will be unique; for I think he is right. I think there is such a magic, and that it is teachable. This book is all about the writer's magic. (From the Introduction.) Scroll Up and Get Your Copy Now.

Follow Amir's life-changing journey through a trilogy of challenges, as they mold him into an agent of change and civil rights lawyer. In the first chronicle, he rebounds from incarceration and expulsion from school, while evading the systems devastating his community. Next, he attends leading universities across the country for 12 years, while obtaining five college degrees. Finally, he visits 30 countries by his 30th birthday, while broadening his perspective and appreciation of the human spirit. 1) During the first 19 years of his life, Amir was engulfed in a war without realizing it. Poverty and the War on Drugs entrapped his neighborhood in a cycle of addiction, incarceration, and chaos. Dominating the drug trade as at age 15, brings the world to Amir fingertips--until a police raid results in him being arrested with his mother. Amir struggles through the remainder of his teenage years after being kicked out of school and lured back into the Trap. Follow this hard-fought journey of a boy with an unrelenting desire to overcome the odds in a warzone. Street Traveler: As a 22-year-old college student, Amir becomes the first person from his neighborhood to obtain a passport. An opportunity to visit Africa unleashes an addiction to traveling, culture shock, and worldly experiences that changes him forever. He becomes obsessed with a goal to visit 30 countries before his 30th birthday, and embarks on an eye-opening quest throughout all corners of the globe. Amir relies on "street smarts" to escape danger, explore forbidden places, and survive on a few dollars a day. Curiosity leads him to intriguing destinations across Asia, Africa, Latin America, Europe, and the Caribbean. Million: Miraculously completing high school after being expelled, Amir reluctantly enrolls in community college. After his thirst for knowledge is awakened, he doubles his high school GPA and plunges into a 12-year college career across the country. In the process, Amir graduates from the top public university in New Jersey, receives his law degree from Florida's leading university in Miami, and obtains a doctorate in Los Angeles from one of the nation's top 25 universities.
