    This books talks about the hard earning success of the Author's journey from The Barrio a extremely poor community predominately Latino to earning his own business It's shows how anyone can have a successful life if they really push themselves to their limits each and everyday The author talks about his disadvantages of being surrounded with drugs gangs and violence and his advantages of looking white while trying to change his life and promote himself in the business world He is now a successful business man who is trying to change the lives of children teens and even adults for the better Overall this is an inspirational true story of success through hard work This book can defiantly be read from around ages 1112 and up

    The From the Barrio Foundation is committed to using author Robert Renteria’s life business experience and role as a civic leader to help eliminate conditions that foster violence delinuency drugs and gangs The book From the Barrio to the Board Room is a tool and Robert Renteria is a resource who promotes education a sense of pride and accomplishment and self esteem within the youth of our communitiesI personally know Robert have met with him and he is one of the most genuine humble dynamic people I met in my life He is truly inspirational and motivating His display of candor is unsurpassedI wish I could stress that every school every classroom every prison and every juvy center should be implementing this book as a mandatory curriculumRobert is currently working a toned down version of the book called 'Mi Barrio' catered for the elementary level students

    This book is a very amazing book that changes peoples life I like the book a lot and recommend it to people of ages 13 and above The main point of this book is to never lose hope And no matter how far you go down the wrong path you can always turn around The really interesting part of this book is that that Robert Renteria went from being in the ghetto doing drugs and other stuff to being a successful business owner Rober is latino and is proud of it and I am too very proud to be a latino as well
