"Breaking the Label" is an autobiographical self-help book by Paul Geise, who shares his personal journey of overcoming self-doubt and academic challenges due to a learning disability. The book is intended to inspire and motivate students who feel inadequate in their abilities to learn, and to provide practical advice and strategies that have helped the author and others like him succeed academically.

Geise shares his experiences growing up in Metro Detroit, Michigan, and feeling frustrated and defeated in his early years of education. He discusses the challenges he faced due to his learning disability, including being told that he would never be able to keep up with his classmates and pursuing an academically-based career was out of the question for him. However, he refused to give up and found ways to work around his disability and develop his strengths.

The author shares practical advice on finding one's strengths and learning style, developing effective study habits and techniques, and utilizing resources and support systems that can be helpful for students with learning disabilities. Geise provides examples of his experiences working with teacher consultants in each primary subject and the instructor's teaching methods, as well as what he did to help himself work through these issues.

After graduating from high school, Geise still felt inadequate in his educational abilities and had to convince himself that he was not helpless. He went on to complete his Associate Degree and numerous other technical certifications without the help of a teacher consultant. He now understands the importance of taking control of his education and the learning curve that comes with it.

Overall, "Breaking the Label" is an inspiring and practical guide for students who feel like they are not good enough, especially those with learning disabilities, to overcome academic challenges and achieve their dreams.




1)      Can you tell us a little about the process of getting this book published? How did you come up with the idea and how did you start?

·         After I had completed my manuscript, I did some research on how to get my get my book published  and what consistently came up was “Kindle Direct Publishing” and the first task I had to complete was to get a cover for my book that I found that on the internet and then have someone format my book for “KDP” after that publishing it to “KDP” was simple.

·         What struck a cord with me was watching a youtube video that was published recently about a IEP student and his experiences,  and after watching it I thought “That doesn't sound much different than when I went to school” so I decided to gather my experiences and start writing them down and it sure did bring back a lot of emotions for me.

·         I started by breaking it down to the basic subjects, Reading, Writing, Arithmetic and just expanded on this.

2)      What surprised you most about getting your book published?

·         Just the fact that I have a book published is surprising enough for me.

3)      Tell us a little about what you do when you aren’t writing

·         I am always looking for new ideas to keep me busy. I am currently learning about cyber Security.

4)      As a published author, what would you say was the most pivotal point of your writing life?

·         When I uploaded the book to amazon and saw it online.


5)      Where do you get your best ideas and why do you think that is?

·         This is my first book so this book came from my own personal experiences.

6)      What is the toughest criticism given to you as an author?

·         Only my own criticism. But I will say that I just received my first three reviews on Amazon and I noticed someone said “It feels like this book has been written and marketed by an AI bot ” Nothing could be further from the truth all I have written has been from personal experience and the feelings and I my hope is to reach these students that may feel the same way I do and show them a way through.

7)      What has been your best accomplishment as a writer?

·         Finishing this book
