"The true stories I've written in this book are my living
nightmares. My greatest hope is that the lessons the stories
help you make better choices than I did." Stanley "Tookie"
cofounder of the notorious Crips gang, is a death-row
inmate. But in
his two decades of incarceration, Williams has also become a
author and activist whose dedication to ending gang warfare
lives of inner-city children has earned him a 2001 Nobel
nomination. In this award-winning book--which has drawn
educators, government leaders, and families alike--Williams
the brutal reality of being an inmate. He debunks myths of
"gladiator schools" with blunt, riveting stories of overwhelming
homesickness, the terror of solitary confinement, and the
of strip-searches. Williams' words are a frank challenge to
readers to educate themselves, make intelligent decisions,
all, not to follow in his footsteps.
