You may think this is another boring “I came to America and made a fortune” story. Not so. Paulo Ronez has an interesting past, and he recounts all the turns and twists his life took from boyhood to 2012, when he wrote this book. Life was a struggle for him, even learning the English language was a struggle. He persevered, and he conquered. Editors love to “polish up” a book. Paulo does not want to alter his text. Paulo is not a professional writer, but he wants his text left alone. I (his son Tony) also want the text left alone. This is to give you an honest true-to-life glimpse of how a real person writes a real book. Earnest Hemingway he is not, but a real person he is. Today, my father is 85 years young, living a full life and having fun in Tampa. He refuses to wear a hearing aid, even though he was diagnosed with mild deafness. As he states: “No way, that’s for old people!”
