About this title


Life is full of challenges, and every day, we are faced with choices that can either cause us to move forward, regress backward, or remain stagnant. Slaying the Dragon The Journey from the Dungeon to the Ivory Tower is an absolutely factual recount of a remarkable journey and astonishing success. During his many journeys, the author, Dave Koch conquered innumerous challenges, beat the odds and achieved the extraordinary. His journey began at 24 years old, after having been released on parole from both state and federal prison sentences. Regardless of an individuals challenges in life, Slaying the Dragon is an informative and inspirational book for all who want more, or the most out of life. Among the greatest challenges facing an ex-offender is simply believing that a normal life in mainstream society is attainable. This book provides the indisputable evidence that a person faced with the challenge of community reentry after having served time in prison can achieve any level of success that they desire all via legitimate agendas. It is also critical that any staff that works with ex-offenders, youthful offenders, juvenile offenders and community reentry organizations fully internalize the belief by concrete example. Slaying the Dragon provides both staff and ex-offenders with an authoritative guide to successful reentry, and an inspirational nuts and bolts path to success for any reader.

About the Author:

Almost 30 years ago, on August 7, 1980, at the age of 24, Koch was released on parole after serving both federal and state sentences of 18 months to five years. Koch made the commitment to never return to prison, and set out on his life-long journey, reentering mainstream society and pursuing a new life and careers that include; Flight Instructor, Airline Transport Pilot, Software Developer and co-founder, President & CEO of the 68th Fastest Growing Company in America - 2001 Inc 500 List. Koch s life and career began after his release from prison. His 30-year career as a member of mainstream society provides the irrefutable evidence that a successful reentry into mainstream society, a path of normalcy and legitimacy, and all of the rich rewards that life has to offer are attainable after a felony conviction and an incarceration event. Slaying the Dragon is a compelling and inspirational autobiography for anyone who is incarcerated and hopes to make a successful reentry into mainstream society upon release. As much a guide as a biography, Slaying the Dragon is a must-read for pre-release preparation and programming, for people who are working in rehabilitation and ex-offender reentry, and counselors working with people who need only believe that their success is possible. The author, Dave Koch is one man who was released from prison and never looked back. Dave has clearly proven that an abundance of opportunity exists for people after they are released from prison. Dave shares his 30 year journey from the Dungeon to the Ivory Tower - offering inspiration, motivation and solutions to the unique challenges faced by ex-offenders.
