Below is the book review that was published in the June 2008 newsletter.

Building the Latino Future: Success Stories for the Next Generation by Frank Carbajal and Humberto Medina is a collection of inspiring stories of profound Hispanic figures sharing their experiences of overcoming early on challenges to become leaders in their respected professions. Throughout the success stories are common threads containing elements of six key principles: focus, unity, tenacity, unique ability, resilience, and education. Each chapter takes an aspect of these elements and applies them to the life story of such figures as New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson, Actor/Activist Edward James Olmos, Founder and CEO of Consore Media Alicia Morga, amongst others. One common theme in many of these stories is the humble upbringings and strong values instilled by the parents of many of these first generation Latino Americans. The story of Martin R. Curiel, Vice President of Marketing for Denali Advisors, LLC. is inspiring as he shares the story of his father driving him to college as a semidiesel collided with their vehicle killing his father. He made the promise to his father, "Father, I will never let you down, I will succeed in college." Curiel earned a bachelor's degree in engineering from California Polytechnic Unviersity and an MBA from Havard School of Business.
Building the Latino Future will inspire readers, whether they are Latino or not, to face challenges, beat the odd, and give you the tools necessary to achieve greatness. Carbajal and Medina do an excellent job of teaching strategies and beliefs utilizing the success stories to make any reader feel empowered.
