Reviewed by K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite

Leza's Memoirs: Beating the Odds is a work of non-fiction which is written in the memoir and autobiographical style by author Richard L. Leza Sr. Best described as a memoir with a message, the author recounts some of the most pivotal experiences of his life and the cultural significance of growing up in a poor Hispanic community, and those events which led him to rise up in the echelons of technological fame and fortune. With a specific focus on education, drive, and a thirst for opportunity, the author intends for his memoirs to inspire and inform those who may also be in the process of trying to achieve big dreams for themselves.

Author Richard L. Leza Sr. delivers several books in one with this concise but jam-packed collection of memoir moments. In the first instance, those who enjoy autobiographies, especially stories of rags to riches, will love the inspirational and emotive storytelling which Leza puts into this account of his life’s most important moments. But beyond this, there is a moral guide to the power of education, an inspiring cultural tale of identity and success, and a self-help message which teaches all of us never to give up on our dreams. The different episodes are very accessible and each delivered with a clear message and theme, making them suitable for individuals, but also as group discussion pieces for high schools, career fairs, and the like. Overall, I would highly recommend Leza's Memoirs: Beating the Odds for readers seeking inspiration and advice from someone who has been there and done that and done it well.
