TroubleTrouble Ain’t Nothin’ But a Word by Paul O. Scott

This memoir begins with a massive heart attack that leaves author Paul Scott in a vegetative state with little possibility of recovery, according to his doctors.  What they didn’t know about him was he neither counted anyone out nor anyone in, especially himself.

He lived his life overcoming multitudinous challenges living by the adage, “All I need is a tiny chance and I’ll make it work.” His story is delivered from a 5’4” frame being constantly told “you can’t, or you won’t.” He was a make-believe Christian with the gift of gab and full of crime.  He refused to accept no, only the last yes.

His memoir addresses his upbringing as a Black Christian Scientist who chose the criminal path, yet no prison.   This memoir shines a light on alcoholism, drug abuse, physical abuse, ever-present crime, and consistently circumventing all challenges. Purchase at https://bit.ly/4cizoDM.
