Secret Entourage recently did an interview with Allen in early 2012, because he became the youngest self-made owner of a Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 (with a 1-of-1 azure blue color). Before that car, he was driving a rare Verde Ithaca Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4. In the interview, he finally shared his story with the world after laying low for many years. His story was so inspiring that many called for him to write a book on his life.

He put aside his projects and took up that challenge. After many months of writing, he completed the book, lifehacked, on September 15th, 2012.
