London – Aug 24st, 2017 – “TESTED” released by author Alpesh H. Patel will be showcased at this year’s prestigious Frankfurt Book fair taking place from October 11th to October 15th, 2017. The book which was released on June 8th, 2017 has received many 5 star Amazon reviews and has far surpassed expectations
TESTED tells the gritty reality of a maverick businessman, as he travels around the world looking for opportunities. This true story starts out in Uganda in the 1960’s, where the author is forced to leave everything behind, fleeing Idi Amin’s persecution as a refugee.
“Having TESTED showcased officially to the industry is a great honor for me . Whoever has read the book only had good things to say about it, with the most common comment being “I could not put the book down”. I brought it to life and now wish to share it with a much larger audience via our presence at this year’s book fair,” says Alpesh H. Patel.
Negotiating his way through his teenage years in Britain, he embarks on an incredible business journeys that takes him from the streets of London to the souks of Tangier, from the concrete jungle of Hong Kong to the bling of Dubai and then back to mother Africa.
“The rhythm of Tested is as palpable as a hard-hitting, hip-hop classic from Jay Z, as humorous as a Russell Howard or SNL skit and as emotional as an R&B ballad from Marvin Gaye or Beyoncé. All of this is underpinned by a cheeky, cocky west London attitude with an Afro-Indian edge!” Buki Mosaku, Founder of Inquire Management.
This is not a rags-to-riches story. Alpesh is a living proof that in life, “we lose more times than we win.” He talks openly and honestly about the dark side of entrepreneurship, and faces up to the psychological challenges to keep going, no matter what.
As the prestigious magazine FORBES once quoted “Beaten and Bloodied, Patel is as rugged as the African bush he was born in.”
This book is a riveting true story of what happens when an entrepreneur keeps trying and fails more times than he succeeds. Alpesh’s soul-searching narrative is compellingly readable and is as packed with dramatic highs and lows as any fictitious novel; the difference being its all true.
TESTED will be showcased at the International Education Exhibition area 4.2 A77 from October 11th-15th 2017
