About the Author

Born in El Salvador, Rey Berrios is divorced, raises two sons, studies for a career in Bio-Agriculture and calls San Francisco home. Rey was nearly killed in vicious knife-fights and produced Mi Vida Loca for nearly two decades, ultimately turning against counterproductive gang violence and advocating La Raza and Chicano resistance to "gavacho" power.

This book is about this north sider and he just talks about his life in the '"barrio". After a while he just kind of treys to stop his cholo ways and makes a magazine called "mi vida loca". His magazine is about other cholos lives in the barrio. He goes around to different places and even though he knows it¿s dangerous because he can get jumped, stabbed, or killed. I haven¿t finished the book but I think is good so far. People that like gangster books would like this book

i like this book because it's based on a true story about this north sider and how he lived in the streets. then he moves in with his dad to try to get oput of the gang but he ends up not like that. so he moves back LA and he just talks anbout hown you should never show fear and a bunch of stuff like that, stay strong and he just give you lots of idvise and how you shoulnt get in to gangs becaues it messes up your life. basicly i like it because hes like talking to you and talking about his life and it's really interesting.
