Brown delves into the profound heartbreak and disorientation upon the death of his beloved grandmother who was his surrogate mother - and recounts how Brown's moonshine-running Uncle Jake subsequently became the dominant adult figure in Brown's life. His unflinchingly honest, easy-to-read memoir details how intellectual curiosity, abiding self-belief, hard work and divine providence helped Brown earn an electrical engineering degree, become an Army officer, and later a civilian IBM engineer. Readers will learn of the strife that ensued when Brown quit IBM to earn an MBA, leading to investment jobs that prepared him to start his own money management company in 1983.

answer young African-American man listening to mr. Eddie Brown talk about his successes inspires me to do well. I am currently working on a master's degree in finance and I'm hoping to walk in the finance field and Blaze the trail just like mr. Eddie Brown.
