Reviewed by Mary DeKok Blowers for Readers' Favorite

Success Against All Odds by Regina Ozoemela is an interesting book by a woman who has seemingly overcome great and some would even say extreme challenges to be self-supporting. Coming from Nigeria, she found herself abandoned by her husband and his family and left with three children. She worked and found ways to go to school, continually improving herself, until she achieved a Master’s degree in the U.S. and long-term employment.

Success Against All Odds shows that, with a bit of creativity and a lot of hard work, people can bring themselves up from bad situations and lifestyles to become effective, contributing members of society. Like almost everyone I know, Regina Ozoemela made some poor choices and was in quite a pickle when she resolved to turn her life around. Some quick thinking and some providential help from family, friends, and strangers aided her climb from poor teenage single mother to becoming a coach and mentor in the United States.

I found this book to proceed slowly at first, but in retrospect this is probably necessary to lay the foundation and background so that the reader can fully understand what Ms. Ozoemela has been through. Marriage laws and customs are apparently very different from in the US and it might have been helpful to have even more of that background information to make the story flow. Ozoemela targets young single mothers and any others who may feel trapped in their lifestyle or job, to help realize that they do have choices and should not spend a lifetime doing something they hate.

This book, Success Against All Odds, is well put together by the author from the cover to the last word. What I like most about this as a student, is the five secrets of rapid change. I also like how the author was able to detail her life growing up and how she survived her suffering and now is thriving! Excellent! -Anonymous
