“One Time Winner” speaks about dealing with adversities of making the best of a bad job, rising above the odds and unfavorable circumstances with the faith keeping that good thing are bound to happen.

The book’s sayings, theme, and examples set by the character “Zinabar” can be applied in real local, state, and federal governments.

In lieu with this book, John R.
