Riveting, Uplifting and Humorous Autobiography “Jamerican: The Gift of Poverty” by Author Sherwin P. Brown Finds Its Way to Bookshelves Everywhere
Reminiscent of “The Pursuit of Happyness,” Brown’s auto-biography follows his roller coaster life from poverty to the heights of white collar American success: a top, award-winning stockbroker. Along the way, we see the influences and experiences that shape his life—a hardworking dad and schoolteacher mom; selling vegetables at the side of the road in Jamaica; and chance meetings that changed his life. Jamerican is a pure delight, often funny, sometimes sad, and ultimately an uplifting view of what the human spirit can do.
About the Author: Sherwin immigrated to the US in 1982 and earned a BS in Accounting from The University of St. Thomas, St. Paul, Minnesota, in 1987. After a short career in accounting, he moved into financial advising and management and rose to the heights of his profession, becoming the Number #1 stockbroker in America.
What makes his journey all the more interesting is the sheer poverty in which Sherwin was raised. His story is a blueprint, which demonstrates that optimism and hard work still pays off. Jamerican is a pure reading joy, and is difficult to put down once it is started.
“Have you ever found yourself slowing your reading pace because you don’t want a book to end? That’s what happened to me with this book. I picked this book up because I enjoy inspirational biographies and have an interest in Jamaican culture, both. Mr. Brown’s book is never dull – it’s an extremely interesting read… and very well written. His intellect, sense of humor, integrity and positivity shine through: A remarkable human being.” Mary Woodward, Edina, Minnesota, USA
Mr. Brown presently makes his home in Boca Raton, Florida, with his Russian-born wife Dinara, and their son, Thomas. Sherwin enjoys cooking, writing, and cheering on Thomas’s sports—basketball in particular. He has already published a financial investment book, “Safer 401(k) Investing: How to Protect Your Investments from the Greed of Wall Street and the Government,” and Sherwin and Thomas actively write a series of children’s books together, with two currently in print: “The Next Door Neighbor Cats with the Funny Names,” and “Why Do We Eat Animals?”
