Tenacity: The Evolution of an Entrepreneur

In Vegas Only Bookstore by Christine McKellar

Tenacity is a highly energetic memoir written by Brooklyn born former Marine, Ron Coury.  He details the struggles he faced and the losses he endured in this eye-opening personalized chronology of how the determined entrepreneur survived the  “Good Ol’ Boy” days of early Southern Nevada.


“In this remembrance of his life and times, Coury provides an account that’s both dramatic and cinematic. The author’s story, as the title suggests, focuses on his indefatigable refusal to surrender, and readers won’t be able to help finding this to be an impressive virtue . . . Coury does show himself to be a naturally gifted storyteller with a clear, informally charming style. Although the narrative largely focuses on his business exploits, he candidly discusses his childhood, his bout with esophageal cancer in the mid-2000s, and his happy marriage, as well. An often captivating remembrance that’s brimming with intrigue.” – Kirkus Reviews

“Inspiring, illuminating, and searingly written, this is a book for someone who has faced tough odds and both lived to tell about it and provides a rather solid hero.”Grady Harp –San Francisco Review of Books
