I was not prepared for the journey that this author took me on. An enlightening read that touched on many events that took place in New York, in the eighties and nineties, from a young man's perspective. I read this book in two days and I was not disappointed. I now understand that I have so much to learn about my past that the education system in the United States could never teach me in 17 years of school. A fascinating read and I would recommend this book to everyone. Well done Mr. Davis.
