Part memoir, part self-help novel, 'Tenacity' by Ron Coury is unlike any other book I've ever read. Coury's grandparents were Middle Eastern immigrants who settled in Brooklyn in the early 1900's in order to give their future children a better life. Coury was raised in New York and became a business man at a very young age when he started shining shoes at the train station. 

From then on, Coury realized that he enjoyed making money and enjoyed coming up with new and innovative ideas for businesse

“When everything you’ve worked for is in peril and your personal freedom is at stake, you can do one of two things. You can sit by, hoping that the system works as it should, the truth will be revealed, and justice will be served. Or you can fight for what’s right. As you’ll see within these pages, the latter is the road I chose.” So begins the memoir of a man called Ron Coury, former US Marine, businessman and one-time accused criminal who fought for justice when no one else would.

This is an edifying, appealing memoir of an amazing man and his struggles to "beat a crooked system". I'm certain it was of even greater interest to those of us who have lived in the Las Vegas area and can relate to some of the people and instances mentioned there.

When I inquired about it, I was told a few names were changed to protect the ...more
