From the Publisher:

"...expertly strips away the romanticized media image of the cool, glamorous life-style of gang members, and dope dealers...reveals the "real deal about life on the street...shows kids how the dope business is an "easy money" scam filled with suckers who end up dead or in prison. Although written for kids at risk, this inspirational, informative story holds universal truths for anyone who has ever doubted themselves or felt less than enough. The easy conversational style draws the reader into Ron's message, as he uses real life anecdotes to illustrate the principles of positive decisioni making and freedom of choice he sets forth.

About the Author:

Ron Glodoski is a dynamic businessman who survived an abusive childhood by escaping to the street. At age 12, he was a gang member. By the time he was 15, he was a gang leader with a felony record. In his twenties he became one of the most successful drug dealers in Milwaukee, commanding an extensive criminal network.

After 20 years as a criminal, Ron hit rock bottom and finally work up. He had lost his family, and most of his friends were eigher dead or doing time. He wanted out of the gangster life.

His decision to change his life led him on a path to self-discovery. He stopped dealing and using drugs, and began successfully applying his skills to a series of legitimate businesses--including The Spinoza Teddy Bear Company, which markets a therapeutic, relaxation tool in the form of a talking bear. He grew this company from a home-based business to a multimillion dollar company employing 35 people. Last year he resigned as president of this company to dev! ote all his energy to working with kids.

Today he is an author and motivational speaker; leads workshops and support groups on gang life, violence prevention, and drug and alcohol abuse; is a voluteer couselor for social service agencies; and a popular speaker in schools, prisons, and detention centers.

As someone who has been there and made it through, Ron reaches out to kids with respect, and teaches them how to take back their right to choose a better way of life. He shows them how to use street smarts to impove themselves.
