New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/10/2013 -- Life is what it is, and sometimes the pain, the unusual twists and turns of it are unavoidable, though through its entirety one must always smile, for this is a great start of the healing process. Author Michael Soward has lived by these words, and in his new book, “Life-ology 101,” he shares his life journey with readers everywhere, giving them a brief written snapshot of his life from childhood to his arrival in New York City, and all the adversities he met and overcame along the way.

“Life-ology101: If All Else Fails, Smile” is an autobiographical chronicle of the life and times of Michael Soward, following his journey from his days as a teenager who came from a strict African-American household to a liberated young adult exploring a nation that was also experiencing sweeping changes. Readers will witness the metamorphosis of a man coinciding with the transformation of an entire society, a domino effect wherein both will never be the same again. Soward’s compelling narrative contains invaluable life lessons on freedom, on a personal and societal level, and on the great responsibilities that come with it.

Through his life story, Soward hopes to show readers that regardless of their life challenges, they must never, ever give up. That is the fundamental lesson of “Life-ology 101.”
