“You Had to Be There” provides a true account of how an average man overcame personal failure to achieve unlikely success.

From the jungles of Vietnam, to divorce courts, mental wards and alcoholic detox units of Virginia, to the showrooms of Chrysler, to corporate boardrooms of America, “You Had to Be There: A Memoir” (published by Archway Publishing) shares the humorous and often tragic life story of author Gene Gorman. Gorman is launching a marketing campaign to expand the book’s reach.

In his memoir, Gorman narrates how he overcame a host of struggles, including addiction, post-traumatic stress disorder and mental illness, before becoming one of the most successful sales and management consultants and used car dealership owners in the country. From his birth in Brooklyn, New York, in 1946, to meeting his lifesaving mentor, he offers details of his financial success journey based on how he followed the simple principles of fairness and faith in God.

“I want my readers to take away a feeling that there is hope for themselves or their loved ones that unbelievable success is available to anyone who is willing to follow my footsteps on this tremendous journey of happiness,” says Gorman.
