Chock-full of anecdotes told with passion and humor, Cyrus A. Ansary's Odyssey of High Hopes is an exquisitely written tale about an immigrant's harrowing, captivating, and sometimes funny rollercoaster hike across the slopes of the American Dream.

From the dark and crime-infested tenements of South Tehran to the pinnacle of global finance is the inspiring story of a skinny teenager's hell-for-leather determination to rise above poverty and obscurity to secure a coveted American education.

Shining a light on the hardships and challenges of immigrants, his memoir is a heartwarming and nuanced perspective on their plight - a thought-provoking "must" read for anyone interested in the truth about American immigrants.
