An economist with the World Bank Group, Kouassi admits his addiction to the fishing his daddy taught him early on the Djoreh river. An eligible heir to the throne of the Abongui kingdom in northeastern Côte d'Ivoire, he left home for school at five; saw an electrical light bulb in action and slipped into his first pair of shoes at eleven. Like most of his office colleagues, Kouassi knows first hand what it means to be poor. "Some people learn about poverty in books, yet millions have lived it; that means you assess situations and measure progress differently," titled his recent mini-portrait. This autobiography responds to demand from family and friends who wish to learn more about his amazing life story. From his native village in Côte d'Ivoire to graduate school in America, via the University of Abidjan, this breathtaking story walks you through the ethno-history of his culture and ethnicity. Moreover, it shows how his US-based charity has reached across miles to his home tribe. "Abongui Assah Bow Boka," or "Abongui's Helping Hand" in his native language, is incorporated in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Besides its historical content, the story links closely the value of education to Kouassi's own life.

Not since Jimmy the Greek's statement on race has there been a book this edgy! This book says what everyone would like to say but are scared to say. Straight out of the projects of Bronx New York, this author has traveled down many roads and has experienced many of the things that most will not have had the opportunity to do. He has taken some of those thoughts and experiences and put it all in this book in order to expose some of the problems and feelings that he believes is plaguing our country. An ex-military officer and police officer, he recently returned from the war in Iraq and tells us what he really thinks about the war and our current administration. He talks about his passion for a crimeless society and holds no punches when talking about crimes and punishment, which he believes is one of the most important issues of our time. He describes some of the troubles that are in the African-American communities, and the daunting and somber short and long-term effects it is having on his people and society. This book will undoubtedly raise some eyebrows and awareness and create a discussion among many.
