Editorial Reviews

“Rico Austin and Dr. Powers present an incredible wealth of knowledge for younger generations to help them learn from their own mistakes and successes. In Boy to Successful Man, the author and doctor have collaborated to create a literal ‘pocket’ book of advice for young men.” – Stacy Padula, award-winning author of Gripped, Montgomery Lake High, and On The Right Path

About the Author

Rico Austin, PhD, was born and raised in Southwestern Idaho as the oldest of five boys. He grew up in an area ripe for adventures, and he learned a lot along the way. His bittersweet stories will have you howling with laughter, grieving from tragedy, and leaving you on the edge of your seat. Rico’s love of reading, exploring, and traveling allured him to many parts of the globe, including Lithuania, Cuba, the United Kingdom where he played American Football, and Mexico to get his PhD. Rico has undergraduate degrees from Boise State University, Grand Canyon University, Staffordshire University, and an MBA from Thunderbird School of Global Management. He and his wife live in Scottsdale, Arizona. This is Rico’s tenth published book.
