“In the Shadows of Politics” is the inspiring story of a man who dared to venture forth into the wide world and make his dreams come true.

Success in life is not guaranteed by the wealth or status of one’s parents. Indeed to achieve success one must strive to triumph over the many obstacles in life. One example of such a philosophy is demonstrated “In the Shadows of Politics” (published by AuthorHouse) which is the fifty year odyssey of author Sylvester A. Mensah, a man who dared to venture forth and become all he can be. This is a raw and uncut autobiography of a man, scholar, technocrat, politician and family man.

This engrossing narrative which draws on autobiographical sketches, takes the reader on an exciting journey through the vicissitudes of life lived in familial and other settings, for the most part in Ghana. Like all life stories, it has the element of a roller-coaster of highs and lows; a story of fortitude in the face of difficulty and of triumph of the human spirit over adversity. In a sense, it is every man’s story, and yet unique, as it resonates with the human experience. The elevation of hope over despair, the realization of more auspicious circumstances against the odds, spiced up with snippets of mischief and intrigue, make this a riveting read.

“In the Shadows of Politics” is the inspiring story of a man who dared to venture forth into the wide world and make his dreams come true.
