    LOOKING FOR A GOOD READ? "BECOMING MR MARTINEZ" is an eye opener about family, friendship, love, self-deprecation, and survival. this is a story set apart from others of it's genre by the cultural influences on so many aspects of his life. Despite many roadblocks and personal challenges, Mr. Martinez ultimately becomes a role model and inspiration to others defeated by the circumstances into which they are born. Indeed a good and thoughtful read!

    "Becoming Mr. Martinez" was an inspiration on a personal and emotional level, and an education for someone who has not experienced the journey of immigration. Having the opportunity to look into Gerson's life in a very frank and meaningful way helped me understand the challenges he and his family faced, and the sheer will required to truimph over those struggles. The writing style compliments the story and manages to engage the reader as if they were part of Mr. Martinez's life.

    I read this book over a two day period. I truly could not put it down. This book is a life story of struggle and inspiration. As fellow Salvadoran, I can clearly identify with Mr. Martinez's experiences as a young immigrant in this country. I too arrived in the US at an early age. I could not but feel empathy for what Mr. Martinez has been through and the struggles he has endured to get where he is in his life now. His life experience is indicative of the struggles immigrants face in this country. I salute Mr. Martinez for his strong will and warrior spirit. Not everyone is as strong or lucky enough to encounter people a long the journey who take an interest in one's success.
