About the Author

Al Dickens was born in Winter Haven, Florida, March 31, 1938. He and his family (mother, father and sister) moved to Newark, New Jersey in the early forties. Raised in the streets of Newark's 2nd and 3rd wards made it almost inevitable that Al would start having serious trouble with the law by the age of 14.

Al spent the last 16 years of his life behind prison bars as a result of two armed robbery convictions. But the prison turned out to be a golden opportunity for Al to get a formal education; and he took full advantage of it.

By the time Al completed two years of college he had coauthored three books and was working on Uncle Yah Yah.

Presently Al Dickens has been in prison for 43 years for 18 bank robberies. He served 25 years for the state of New Jersey, and has completed 18 years in the federal prison. He will be released in August 2010.

Good. The last chapter was more entertaining, but we all have our things!

I read this book over 15 years ago and the wisdom that is enclosed between these pages are still right on point today! Wish I could find part 2.
