Rough Cuts: A Man, a Plan, a Gym. Inspirational Stories from the 'Hood

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


You never would have figured Marshall Cohen to be the guy who would inspire thousands of city children to escape the shackles of poverty and build better lives for themselves and their families. Marshallís suburban schoolboy chums once called him the ìD-minus boy.î He battled attention deficit order before there was a name for it, then, as he got older, drinking and depression that had him contemplating suicide. 
In the midst of all that, Marshall had been able to make a decent living while working at his familyís store, Globe Drugs, in downtown St. Louis. There the unfortunate and those with small and large fortunes gathered to look for bargains galore.  As Marshall writes, they found ìquarts of Mogen David that hadnít made the kosher cut, ladies bowling shoes going two pairs for a buck, and a plentiful supply of menís size 55w maroon polyester pants.î Marshall said his father and uncles ran their store like a clandestine 501c3, hiring and helping ex-convicts, on-and-off the-wagon alcoholics and an array of immigrants, some literally just off the boat.
