    Boy genius's book reveals life in college at age 8

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — The one thing 14-year-old Moshe Kai Cavalin dislikes is being called a genius.

    All he did, after all, was enroll in college at age 8 and earn his first of two Associate of Arts degrees from East Los Angeles Community College at age 9, graduating with a perfect 4.0 grade point average.

    Now, at 14, he's poised to graduate from UCLA this year. He's also just published an English edition of his first book, "We Can Do."

    The 100-page guideline explains how other young people can accomplish what Cavalin did through such simple acts as keeping themselves focused and approaching everything with total commitment. He's hoping it will show people there's no genius involved, just hard work.

    "That's always the question that bothers me," Cavalin, who turned 14 on Valentine's Day, says when the G-word is raised. "People need to know you don't really need to be a genius. You just have to work hard and you can accomplish anything."

    And maybe cut out some of the TV.

    Although he's a big fan of Jackie Chan movies, Cavalin says he limits his television time to four hours a week.

    Not that he lacks for recreational activities or feels that his parents pressured him into studying constantly. He writes in "We Can Do" of learning to scuba dive, and he loves soccer and martial arts. He used to participate in the latter sport when he was younger, winning trophies for his age group, until his UCLA studies and his writing made things a little too hectic.

    Indeed one of the key messages of his book is to stay focused and to not take on any endeavor half-heartedly.

    "I was able to reach the stars, but others can reach the 'Milky Way," he tells readers.

    It was a professor at his first institution of higher learning, East Los Angeles City College, who inspired him, Cavalin says. He didn't like the subject but managed to get an A in it anyway, by applying himself and seeing how enthusiastic his teacher, Richard Avila, was about the subject.

    Avila, he says, inspired him to write a book explaining his methods for success so he could motivate others.

    It took four years to finish, in part because Cavalin, whose mother is Chinese, decided to publish it in Chinese, and doing the translation himself was laborious.

    Han Shian Culture Publishing of Taiwan put the book in print, and it did well in Taiwan, Singapore and Malaysia, as well in several bookstores in Southern California's Asian communities. He then brought it out in English for the U.S. market.

    Because of his heavy study load, Cavalin has had little opportunity to promote the book, other than a signing at UCLA, where he also lives in student housing with his parents and attends the school on a scholarship.

    After earning his bachelor's degree, the math major plans to enroll in graduate school with hopes of eventually earning a doctorate.

    After that, he's not so sure. He points out that he's still just barely a teenager.

    "Who knows?" he says, chuckling at the thought of what lies ahead in adulthood. "That's a very distant future, and I'm pretty much planning for just the next few years. That's too far into the future for me to see."

    5.0 out of 5 stars A Fantastic Book for Pre-Teens, Teens, and Parents Who Want to Inspire Their Kids, December 23, 2011
    This review is from: We Can Do (Paperback)
    Great book! Remarkable "full scope" coverage in a short & sweet "quick read". Invaluable. Get 10 of them and give them to your friends & relatives!

    My favorite parts of the book are:

    1) Moshe Kai describes how probably the single biggest key element in his tremendous successes is that when he chooses an endeavor-- whether scuba diving, martial arts, or of course his math & physics classes-- he puts his "whole heart" into it. Then he follows through with adequate time, planning, and effort.

    2) MK describes the mind-boggling bureaucratic obstacles he faced, which was a remarkable "real-world" education in itself.

    3) MK describes not a "lost childhood", but rather a very happy childhood spent scuba diving with colorful fish and friendly dolphins, training martial arts in the park, and shared with a wonderful family. There were some heartbreaks and other mis-haps, as befalls pretty much everyone, but overall MK easily dispels his critics' theories that his spectacular achievements must have caused some sort of "unhappy childhood". Instead, MK describes great times that anyone would enjoy.

    Finally, his purpose throughout the book-- and even its title-- is that lots more kids "can do" what Moshe Kai has done. On page 44, MK writes (sic) "I do not like to share my inner thoughts because they are the essence of my being.... I only expose my inner feelings with hope that I may lead some kids to see my success and believe that they can do the same or better. If one kid can accomplish it or go far beyond because my book, I will be overjoyed."

    I know for a fact that other kids can achieve what MK has done: that's why I developed the "FromZeroToCalculus" ® System (website: FromZeroToCalculus.com), where rapid advancement is attainable.

    Again, I highly recommend Moshe Kai's book, "We Can Do", about how he entered college at age 8 and graduated at age 11 with an Associate's Degree Summa Cum Laude and a 4.0 GPA. Enjoy it, be inspired by it, and give copies to your friends and relatives!
