Bloomington, IN (Vocus/PRWEB) March 18, 2011
Xlibris, the print-on-demand self-publishing services provider, announced today the release of Going Against The Grain. Authored by John Edward Kyle, this book presents a heartrending memoir of childhood abuse and redemption – of the ways individuals and institutions can help a person transform – as experienced by the author.
In the pages of this release, the author shares how he gives credit to his grandmother’s teachings and friends at school. They showed him how families could and should behave. Through vivid narration, he also relives how the United States Marine Corps gave him a means of escape. Exuding an assemblage of emotions from page to page, Going Against The Grain is also a memoir of learning from the past and overcoming it. It accounts how survival in childhood left one man with a profound feeling about the importance of standing up for what is right.
“When corrupt and inept officials at the Small Business Administration lured me into signing a contract they knew would cause the downfall of my business, and then gained from my loss, I could not let the issue rest. I fought them with everything I had. When government agencies I worked for decided not to push too hard in the effort to aid minority businesses, I fought for greater compliance. When the director of the Service Corps of Retired Executives (SCORE) insisted there was no need to bring in African American experts as speakers, I argued that there was indeed a need,” says Kyle.
Candid, honest, and blunt, Going Against the Grain is about lawsuits won and complaints filed and a lifelong determination to help those less fortunate that stemmed, probably, from starting out life as one of them.
