I listened to the book on cd. It was read by the author who did a wonderful job of telling his life story. Jeff told of his drug-dealing days and how he had come up from nothing, to loose it all and end up in prison. With just a dim future ahead of him, this story told of how he discovered his passion, and how that passion has now allowed him to raise his family successfully and on the "right" side of the law!I think this is a good book to give as a gift to any young man who seems to be torn between trying to get a good education or seeking to be the "man on the street". Jeff has begun to give back to the youth, something that we need more of.
