This is the autobiography of a Cuban refugee who immigrated to the United States in 1962 and decided to make Boston, Massachusetts, home for his family and future generations.
He starts his life chronicle the day he, after much hassle with the abusive customs officers at Havana's International Airport, who do everything they can to ruin his life, finally lands in Miami, Florida.
With no knowledge of the English language but a lot of hope and ambition, this young man, who as a child suffered a mild case of troubling Tourette's syndrome, starts by telling us his parents' history and dedication in a small town in Cuba and his own growth as a student abused intellectually for his ideas at a Jesuit high school.
While in Boston he becomes the first Latino Boston banking executive and community leader, and eventually he takes much desired position as a college professor of information systems and holds six college degrees - one in Freudian psychoanalysis. He is also a bilingual newspaper columnist and writer and publisher of 10 Kindle books - all while raising a family of two children and five grandchildren.
