FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., March 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Pediatric emergency medicine physician, author and lottery winner, Dr. Shirley Press is pleased to announce the 2013 release of her memoir, Pressing My Luck, A Doctor's Lottery Journey. Published by Re-Spin Publishing, the book is available in both print and e-book format.
In her book, Dr. Press shares how the windfall of winning the Florida lottery affected her life after the giant fake check was stuffed into the garage. Pressing My Luck takes the reader on a journey of Dr. Press' life, beginning with her childhood as the daughter of Holocaust survivors in Camden, New Jersey. It recounts her determination to become successful, her wild 1970 summer adventure at Paul McCartney's house, her years of practicing medicine and her harrowing attempts at dodging con artists. She also candidly discloses how the money didn't protect her family from life's struggles, such as her husband's near fatal illness and her son's drug addiction. Thoughtfully drawing from her experiences, Dr. Press passes on the importance of making and taking opportunities for attaining personal contentment in life. In Dr. Press' words, she surprisingly reveals that most of her "expanded self could have been achieved without the money."
Dr. Press' career as an author includes 22 published articles in peer-reviewed medical journals. As the former director of the Pediatric Emergency Department at Jackson Memorial Hospital and former Associate Professor of Clinical Pediatrics at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, Dr. Press has 30+ years of experience treating children with acute medical conditions and evaluating victims of child abuse. Despite her lottery windfall, Dr. Press continues to work in the Pediatric Emergency Department.
Since her lottery windfall, Dr. Press' story has aroused both TV and print media interest. Last year, Dr. Press shared her lottery experience on the Katie Couric Show. She was also featured in a 2012 People Magazine article and in a 2010 episode of the TLC reality show "Lottery Changed My Life." Dr. Press also participated in the 2013 Miami International Book Fair with her own Writer's Row booth.
