INDIANAPOLIS, Jan. 18, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Joseph Peterson sets the bar in trouncing tough challenges and leading a life well lived with the release of his autobiography, The Adopted Son: Perseverance To Achieve Success, published through Xlibris.

The Adopted Son describes Peterson’s life, from the time he was born through to seventy years of developing successful businesses and raising a family. Readers will discover Peterson’s indomitable spirit and constant perseverance as he pulled himself through one educational level and then through another, to build a valuable reservoir of knowledge—all this despite a troubled life at home. He tenaciously demonstrated the same golden quality in his purposeful ascent up the corporate ladder.

As he slowly unfolds his motivating life experiences, Peterson builds up encouragement for the reader in between the threads that seam together his incredible life experiences. He describes God’s constant, positive influences in fortifying his perseverance to achieve success.

Perhaps most stirring is Peterson’s shelving of material success into second place in favor of the more meaningful wealth of love found in family and in demonstrating compassion. As well, Peterson hopes to impart that no matter how tough one’s life becomes, there is always hope to work things out for the best.

Filled with lessons on work and on life, The Adopted Son moves the heart even as it encourages reaching for success. For more information on this book, interested parties can log on to www.Xlibris.com.
