Review quote

"A""wonderful and inspiring book. I expected gritty--it's based on the life of Rubin "Hurricane" Carter, after all. What I didn't expect was to be so moved by his extraordinary insight, his disarming honesty and his grace. I loved the book." --Professor Cookie Ridolfi, director, Northern California Innocence Project
