Oct 15, 2010Do you dare to dream the American Dream? A lot of Americans don’t even pursue what they have opportunities for, but the main character of “Success, Envy, Crash, Reborn” did and then some. This true story reads like fiction, through the role of Tony Lima, a Brazilian immigrant who makes a serious go at life in America. The story is a frantic one, full of many life lessons and ups and downs. That it is true is something of amazement at one man’s perseverance… HEATHER FROESCHL, FOR BOOKREVIEW.COM (SEPTEMBER 05, 2006) WWW.BOOKREVIEW.COM/$SPINDB.QUERY.LISTREVIEW2.BOOKNEW.15843 I found it to be a fascinating read and enlightening.
