If you are a fan of books about British gangsters/tough guys, you pretty much have to read this book, as Shaw is one of the most famous (or infamous) of that genre. Personally, this was not my favorite book of the genre. I liked it, but Shaw spent a lot of his life in prison, so naturally a large portion of the book talks about his time there and after a while it just got a little boring for me. I liked McLean's "The Guv'nor" better.

Roy Shaw is a great character, with an amazing strength. This is how to prepare for a life on the streets, i recomend this to any teenager with an appatite for success.

this book will pass your time while allowing you to gaze into the pit of dimentia. roy's adherence to his own brutal codes and his colorful memories of the characters that made up london's miscreants. his life was hard, and his choices make that very clear. not to "pop" this up too much but if you enjoy the sopranos you'll probably love roy shaw -- prettyboy.

I read this book in one sitting. It has a fascinatting account of all the trouble and strife Mr Shaw went through. A tale of overcomming the darkest mental and physical abuse of leading institutes , and of how he has made the transition from barenuckle boxer to successful businessman. Well worth the money and a great read

This is a great book about a fighter I have never heard of before. What a life!! Man on honor as well. No guns or knives. Just fists

one of the best books I have ever read. Action packed through and through. Shaw's life experiences are absolutely jaw dropping.
