Every Monday Mad Frog is the hottest Salsa place in Cincinnati, thanks to Tropicoso.

And each Monday, Mad Frog has its basement open - with the best in Reggaeton, Hip-hop, and world rhythms. It's like having two clubs in one: live Salsa/Merenge upstairs with Tropicoso, and eclectic beats downstairs!

 BUILDING THE LATINO FUTURE: Success Stories for the Next Generation (Wiley; May 2008; $24.95; Hardcover), by Frank Carbajal and Humberto Medina, is a compilation of the inspiring stories of dozens of men and women who, despite humble beginnings, meager resources, and limited opportunities, beat the odds and rose to become leaders in their professions. Their stories describe the habits, strategies, beliefs, and resources that enabled these icons to make it to the top.

From actor and activist Edward James Olmos, readers will learn the value of self-discipline and focusing on one’s goals. Henry Cisneros, former Secretary of Housing in the Clinton administration, writes about finding opportunity right in one’s own community. And NFL quarterback Jeff Garcia presents a shining example of how perseverance pays off.

This fascinating look into the lives of successful Latinos goes beyond biography to provide a future framework to use in building an exciting career. Readers will learn how to: • Focus on specific goals and develop a plan to achieve them • Make sure you get the education you need to succeed • Take advantage of the support available in your community • Put all of your energy into achieving your goal • Bounce back after disappointments • Find a unique route to success

Other noteworthy profiles include Ray Suarez, Senior Correspondent with PBS's News Hour with Jim Lehrer, Wal-Mart board member Aida Alvarez, Stanford University Professor Emeritus Jerry Porras, and New Mexico Governor and former presidential candidate Bill Richardson.

Recently we had the pleasure to talk with one of the authors, Frank Carbajal
