The Curse of Iqbal/978-1-63263-534-1
ROBERT STEPHEN HAMLIN, author
Following a devastating car crash, a young man becomes isolated and alienated. His unfortunate accident gives him the insight he will carry throughout life, that nothing is guaranteed, not even his next breath. He rejects a secure position in his father's business, and begins searching for a higher calling. A chance meeting in 1969 with Donald Trump, a friend from high school, assures him that he is right in abandoning all interest in a business career. In this first memoir the author weaves the next dozen or so years together in the pattern of a small craft tacking breezily through a choppy channel. Confident of a safe harbor somewhere ahead, he sails on until he understands a new course needs to be set. A promised sequel is an invitation to journey with the author into the next century.
