About the Book

Some people are pursuing wealth and fortune. Others are seeking self-gratification at all costs. Then, there are those who are sick and tired of the same ole, same ole. Ghetto Psychology is not an arrow to self-pleasure, nor wealth and fame. But to those who are sick and tired of yourself, and the ill choices that you seem to continue to make – come aboard! Fortunately enough, the worst situations can bring the best out of us. For me, guilt and sorrow were the forerunners to peace and contentment. The road to enlightenment was a rugged one. The only light at the end of the tunnel was the one that I imagined in my head. Throughout the process of physical incarceration, I gained psychological liberation, and in the midst of it all, Ghetto Psychology was conceived. When I finally walked out those prison gates, after 15 years, Ghetto Psychology was full grown, as I was now. I refuse to sugar coat it, or patch it up. The cure for poverty and self-destruction is paradoxical. On one hand, it is complex, because it takes diligent, consistent effort. On the other hand, it is as simple as seeing things differently. To change one’s mind is to change one’s life!
