This book is deep and well-written. You go on an emotional roller coaster with Valentino and after shaking your head at his wrong choices, you find yourself in a bit of amazement that he actually admits his mistakes. Further, you find yourself cheering for him because he seems to be proof you can rehabilitate. To see a guy go from underground drug dealer on the streets of New York, to sitting in a jail cell, and back out and onto movie screens and worldwide fame, and hear it in his voice... it's impressive.
I've never in my life read the same book twice, but I think I'm going to make an exception for this one.
I did not know this side of Gregg at all and the stuff he was into and he did. The parts where he had guns held to his head I was reading like a nut to see what happened even though I knew how they turned out.
His girlfriend dying was very powerful. How he took her off the streets and how she always had his back. Most people say they have your back and they do not. She had his and she was fearless. She was an amazing woman to me.
I enjoyed the story about the Goth girl that was pretty funny I would have jumped out the window to get out of there.
I liked his comments about the current state of bodybuilding and the professional bodybuilders. I agree with him that some day you are going to see law enforcement raid the stage and arrest everyone.
Honestly this was one of the best books I have read. The different situation he explained he was in was incredible. It was like you were watching a police show and Gregg was the perp.
I am proud to say that Gregg Valentino is a friend of mine and how he has turned his life around. Gregg would give you the shirt off his back if he had to.
I would recommend this book to everyone.

Not very interesting. Just a drug dealer and not a very good one who filled his arms full of oil. Tragic read of a tragic lifePublished on April 4, 2014 by Pen Name

I was into it until the end although he knew that column he wrote would cause him to lose fans. I understand why he did it but at the same time throughout the book he claimed... Read morePublished on August 8, 2013 by Amazon Customer

I bought the ebook version of this book, which doesn't seem to be available any more, so I guess I can't complain about the formatting errors. Read morePublished on September 8, 2011 by Saber Taylor
