About Our Guest
Howard grew up in a violent area of Brooklyn, New York where he was mugged over one hundred times, and he eventually found a safe space in the local public library.
When he went to college at age 17, he majored in biology, but in his junior year, Howard decided that he also wanted to major in psychology. The dean said that in order to finish both majors at the same time, he’d have to complete all four years of his second major in one year. He taught himself how to read eighty pages a minute and did finish his second four-year major in one year.
