More About This Book

Overview

A background in hate. A life of violence. A love for power. But all he needed was a moment of truth.

I heard the gasp of horror and knew I'd been caught.
"What are those?" she cried, pointing at my body, which was covered from neck to waist in graphic, sinister tattoos.
No way was I going to tell her what they meant - the hate crimes I'd committed, the people I'd stabbed and maimed to earn those tattoos. No way was I going to tell her about the hundreds of kids I'd initiated to follow me into the White Power movement and the things they did for me every day.

From his youth, TJ Leyden was taught to fight, to hurt, and to hate. Cunningly brilliant and deceptively clean-cut, TJ found that life with the Skinheads was exactly what he - and they - needed. Quickly rising to the top, TJ recruited members for the Skins, and in return he earned a name and a reputation as one of the most powerful men in the White Power movement. With a skill for fanning the fires of hatred and an ability to elude the law, it seemed that nothing would stop TJ - that is, until he became a father.

As his own children grew, so did TJ's uncertainty about the cause he'd endorsed for so long. One fact finally emerged from all the racist propaganda: white power wasn't about being white; it was simply about having someone to hate. And once he realized this truth, TJ knew his life could never been the same.

Skinhead Confessions takes you on an unbelievable ride through a dark world of violence to one of openness and faith in the future. TJ's honesty and courage - even in the face of death - have inspired people across America to take action against gang violence and hate crimes. A book unlike any other, this is the amazing true story of one person's journey from hatred to hope.

    Inspiring and relateable

    Being somewhat like the author of this book i too have struggled with my own hate towards groups of and individual people. Reading the authors life and realising what his hate did to him made me seriously re think my outlook.

    I had to read this book for an elective class I am taking this semester, but I think if someone else outside of class would have recommended it to me I would have read it in that instance also. Anyway, this book is great! T.J. does a magnificent job of showing how quickly we can get wrapped up in hate and anger and that the message is the same across racial hate groups they just insert their names and the groups they hate. I would recommend this book to anyone who believes in tolerance and who wants to broaden their horizons.

    A reviewer

    Skinhead Confessions is a fascinating book to read. It is discriptive and steadily holds your interest as it leads you into the Skinhead world of racism and violence and helps you understand the efforts of one man to turn his life around. I began reading this book and couldn't put it down until it was finished. I recommend this book to anyone who has an interest in the social deviates of today's society and how to survive their hatred as well as anyone who reads for entertainment.
