NEW SELF-HELP BOOK WINS ERIC HOFFER AWARD
Mounting Accolades for Everything I Never Learned in School
Grayton Beach, Florida (June 13, 2017) – Available through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other major booksellers, Everything I Never Learned in School: A Guide to Success by Darin Colucci is a straightforward and practical guide that can help anyone achieve his or her goals. The book has received praise from reviewers and successful entrepreneurs such as Daymond John, the founder and CEO of FUBU and famed investor on ABC’s hit television series Shark Tank. It recently won an Eric Hoffer Book Award in the 2017 Self-Help category.
“I am very grateful,” said author Darin Colucci, a native of Duxbury, Mass. “Thank you so much to the good people at the Hoffer Awards for this honor. I truly believe that Everything I Never Learned in School will help any person who chooses to read it learn how to live a happy and successful life.”
The Eric Hoffer Book Awards honor the late American philosopher Eric Hoffer (1898–1983), author of The True Believer and several other books and papers and a winner of the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Hoffer is thought to be one of the greatest thinkers of his time by many scholars and historians.
In his book, Colucci gives advice based on his own experiences alongside true stories of successful people, including Daymond John, Steven Spielberg, Sara Blakely, and more. Coupled with lessons and simple tasks for readers, this success book will be useful anytime one needs a motivation boost or a reminder that, as Colucci says, “Success is a choice, one that needs to be made right now.” The book is slated to be part of a classroom curriculum at a Philadelphia high school in the 2017–2018 school year.
He is known as a successful trial attorney in Boston, but it was his twelve years as a high school and college football coach that helped Colucci realize his true calling: mentoring young minds and encouraging those who, like him, felt they weren’t on the right path in life. This led to writing Everything I Never Learned in School: A Guide to Success and later to becoming a motivational speaker.
Colucci is now striving to help and inspire others through speaking about success in various fields of business, sports and fitness, leadership and overall happiness and quality of life. He is available to speak at commencement ceremonies, conferences, workshops and more.
“They teach virtually everything in schools except how to be successful and how to be happy,” Colucci said. “This book is a practical guide—a road map to those two destinations. It’s a how-to book specifically tailored for anyone who is unfulfilled by their current circumstances and wants more out of this journey we call life.”
