Summary
“This is the unlikely, but true story of a man who had none of the qualities considered necessary for an entrepreneur – no eccentric IT genius – nor money-market marvel – nor the innovator/creator of a new market. Instead, Alan was a hard-working obsessive-compulsive armed only with a ninth-grade education and some rat cunning whose parents’ dream was for him to work as a postman. In this funny, unforgettable and compelling account, he tells the tale of his most unlikely journey – made every mistake – fell into every trap – bought every scam – distracted by the usual suspects: squabbles over money, relationships in ruins, and pursued to the point of financial calamity and personal insanity by vexatious litigant for ten years. It was only when Alan started ignoring conventional wisdom, and breaking all the rules of business, that everything turned around for him.”--Back cover
