If you're a fan like I am this is definitely the book for you. --Pete Davidson, actor, producer, and cast member on Saturday Night Live

Danny's incredible life story shows that even though we may fall down at some point in our lives, it's what we do when we stand back up that really counts. --Robert Rodriguez, creator of Spy Kids, Desperado, and Machete

   The real deal
I cannot recommend this book enough. When I found out Danny was writing this I was excited, but I wondered if he would be truthful and real with his readers. As a child he was surrounded by violence, drugs and crime and followed that path because it's all he knew. Danny left a trail of failed relationships as he made his way through the violent life of a criminal, finally ending up in prison. I'm not going to tell you what happened next, because you really need to buy this book and read it for yourself. Danny Trejo gave us a jewel and you'll find yourself thinking of this book long after you've finished it.
