15 Life Lessons from My Immigrant Parents: That You Don't Learn in School

George Peter Nassos

Peter Nassos emigrated to the U.S. in 1910 at the age of 14 after completing only two years of elementary education. About 26 years later he married Marika who had four years of education, and shortly thereafter they had two sons who grew up in Chicago and became very successful. Peter and Marika had a major impact on their sons' careers by instilling their life experiences, good values and wisdom. The influence on their sons may have had a greater impact than their sons' college education which resulted in six undergraduate and graduate degrees between them.

The younger son, George, reflects on the legacy left to his brother and him by their parents. He writes about the great life experiences of his parents that were embedded early in his life, like caring for other people. These lessons from his parents are really special as there was no way he would have learned them in school.

This book is a must read for students of all ages as well as a must read for parents and grandparents from which they can learn as well as to pass down to their family.
