Jurado’s book, “The Road Never Ends” is a must reading for all journalists. It portrays his life as a journalist, with all its risks and dangers. Jurado calls journalism not a profession, but a calling where one cannot expect to become rich and a multi-millionaire. Jurado said there’s no substitute for a good education, hard work, patience, and perseverance to attain one’s goal in life. And above all, Jurado added, faith in God and a lot of prayers to achieve one’s goals.
