Witnessing a Notable Story of the UNCOMMON MAN

Newly published book is a story of one man’s humble beginnings to becoming a
confidante of the late President Ferdinand E. Marcos of the Philippines
Suwanee, GA – (Release Date TBD) – “I decided to write this book to provide insights on how a peasant’s son,
born of meager means, was able to fulfill his dream of becoming an UNCOMMON MAN. And so the story goes
. . .” says the author. Wittingly woven as a gift for his wife and an enduring legacy to his children and
grandchildren, the UNCOMMON MAN is an inspiring memoir of the author’s life in the Philippines.

Containing a myriad of wonderful memories and recollections, the UNCOMMON MAN details the author’s
journey from his rural life to striving to achieve his dreams and become a successful entrepreneur. But
generally, this book uncovers the extent of his relationship with President Ferdinand E. Marcos—from the time
Marcos was elected as the President of the Philippines in 1965, until the time he stepped down from Presidency
in 1986. It reveals how good-natured President Ferdinand E. Marcos was. It shows that no matter how the
President wanted to promote infrastructure and development projects in the Philippines, his programs, in most
instances failed. They failed because of the lack of cooperation from the Managers overseeing the different
agencies of the government. They failed because the Oligarchy surrounding the President had more influence
over the implementing “Managers” and would not want the President to succeed.

The line of communication between the President and the author was open at all times inside the Study Room,
where he had direct access to the President. Filled with truth and enduring memories, the UNCOMMON MAN is
the author’s story that will inspire everyone. For more information on this book, interested parties may log on to
