    This Work Hits You In The Heart

    This book is annointed because it is written from the heart. This is a fast paced first person account of a survivor, straight out of the mean streets of the east side, Every and Any City, in California. Some survivors it would seem are the recipients of dumb luck. This one has a message that hits you straight in the heart. Fast paced from start to finish, some books just stay with you after you read the last page. This is such a work and it is hard to put this testimony down, it is a page turner. The Last Street Fighter explains with clairity the progression of youth violence from one who was there when the fist fighting ended and the shooting began. This is done in a unique way, in the form of a true story. Gen X is unique in that they were a witness to the before and after of these post modern serious issues. The trends start there in California, so yeah these issues are coming to a neighboorhood near you, soon, if not already. This is just a good book and would interest anyone who cares about young people period.

    Finished It In 5 Days

    I finished this book in five days and could not put it down, for this reason I give it five stars. The Last Street Fighter for me answered more questions then any other work I have read in this genre. It is unique in that it explains the progression of lethal youth violence in a way that I have not heard before. In the from of a true story. It does a good job of walking you in the shoes of a young street fighter at a time in history, in trend seting Califronia, when the fist fighting ended and the shooting began. It also explains all the social issues at the time that pushed the envelope to the gunfire that we see today and have seen ever since. This book is deep, with redemption and positive take away. I applaud this work and recommend it to the young and any one who cares about young people

    Strap On The Seat Belt.

    This book is fast paced, it starts out at 100 mph and ends at 120 mph. This is a well written work that is honest, sincere and has a message. I know that things went down like this as the author and I are about the same age however, I have not read anyone break it down like this. The Last Street Fighter tells the story of our generation X in the form of a true story at a personal level.

    Last Street Fighter

    I really enjoyed reading this book. I got caught up into the young man's struggle. I was afraid for him when his life became threatened and he was in trouble with rival gangs. I cared about him and the dangers he encountered. I was routing for him all the way. When he turned his life around through prayer, I realized this was an important book, a 'change you life' kind of book. I recommend this book for its valuable content, and because it's a darned good read.

    10 Youth A Day Dying By Gunfire Alone.

    Griping, fast paced and powerful. The author does a good job of breaking down the historical progression of youth violence in trend seting California. He managed to do this all in a way I have not heard before, in the form of a true story. A true story and testimonial with redeeming take away. For me it answered what, when, where and why we have come to the point of fist fighting to shooting.
