S. L. Young released his "It's a Crazy World...Learn From It" series in 2012 and 2013, which contain easily understood inspirational quotes to deal with a sometimes crazy world. Mr. Young's book about 'workplace bullying' (May 2013) brings greater attention to an ugly topic that isn't discussed enough, along with thoughtful solutions to address various types of workplace harassment. Mr. Young's book about his 'unlikely educational journey' (July 2013) details his ability to overcome many challenges from being directed to leave high school in 10th grade, graduating in the bottom 8% of his high school class, and ultimately becoming a college professor. Other books by Mr. Young are about his battle with depression, and recovery from a near-suicide (June 2014), ethics (March 2014) and soft skills development (May 2014): belief, communication, negotiation, time management, and more. He has also created an educational non-profit to provide services for at-risk communities.
