Take less “stupid pills”
Posted by Literary Titan
J.D. to J.D is a memoir detailing your life journey from juvenile delinquent to becoming a Doctor of Jurisprudence. What was the inspiration that inspired you to capture your story in a book?
I have always been a story teller as a way of connecting to people, young and old, rich or poor. I had a near death experience, took stock of my life’s experiences and thought that my story could potentially be inspirational or motivational to some and entertaining in the process to others.
Looking back on your life now that you wrote this book, do you see anything differently?
I see a greater ability for people to change over time in the right setting. I never realized how much I changed from my youth through adulthood until I juxtaposed my numerous juvenile indiscretions against my later life accomplishments. We often pigeon hole people and now I tend to do that less and realize that many people have untapped resources and can become assets to society rather than impediments.
I found your book inspiring as well as entertaining. What do you hope readers take away from your book?
People who make mistakes can learn from them, mature and change over time.
What is one piece of advice that you wish someone had given to you when you were younger?
Take less “stupid pills” and think about the future without simply living for the moment.
In this funny and insightful memoir, Brian Caplan takes us on his journey from a reckless and self-centered juvenile delinquent to a respected and empathetic member of the legal profession. Brian recalls his early days of shockingly poor judgment and shares how he learned from his experiences to make the seemingly insurmountable leap from first being arrested at age twelve, to today representing some of the bigger names in the entertainment industry as a prominent litigator.
Growing up in the center of gritty 1970s New York City, Brian was on a troubled path, destined to fade into oblivion or end up in jail or worse. Brian eventually found his way; a born risk-taker, Brian capitalized on a few lucky opportunities that came to him and parlayed them into a fulfilling career far removed from his childhood fate. In this tale of redemption and second chances, Brian shares the lessons he learned during his journey, infusing optimism and a sense of hope to all those who hear his story.
