Product Description

Review

"Rubin Carter describes his truly inspiring journey through his early life of brutality and suffering into his current life of hard-won spiritual affirmation and worldwide advocacy for the wrongly convicted. His views on the American justice system and the death penalty are outspoken, uncompromising, and ultimately accurate. Dr. Carter's autobiography presents the unique and passionate vision of a unique and passionate man." -- Sister Helen Prejean, author, "Dead Man Walking" When a judge is responsible for freeing a person whom he believes has been wrongly convicted of murder, he worries whether he will live to regret or be proud of that decision. When it comes to Rubin Carter, I have no regrets. He has justified my faith in him, and I am proud of the person he has become. He is a testament to the human spirit." -- Judge H Lee Sarokin, retired, U.S. Appeals Court "A wonderful and inspiring book. I expected gritty -- it's based on the life of Rubin "Hurricane" Carter, after all. What I didn't expect was to be so moved by his extraordinary insight, his disarming honesty and his grace. I loved the book." -- Professor Cookie Ridolfi, director, Northern California Innocence Project "An uplifting tale of how a man can transcend shackles of all sorts." -- Globe & Mail "Long story short, if Eye of the Hurricane doesn't inspire you, nothing will." -- Smooth Magazine "Essential for the socially conscious." -- Library Journal --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

This book is very well written - I couldn't stop reading it, feeling compelled to do so with the inspirational messages and examples of humbleness, human strength, dignity, hope and compassion. Are these the traits one would normally expect to hear from a boxer - probably not (and unfairly so I might add). What struck me most was that despite everything that the author has been through there is no anger or malice in his words - instead there are many messages and whole chapters of hope and inspiration aimed at giving a message of positivity and belief in a higher justice - amen to that!

This is a book I can highly recommend and one that I will read again quite a few times to come yet.

The author talks of controlling anger and practicing forgiveness, but reading of the injustices in this book will leave the compassionate reader livid at the unfair justice system, the ignorant and arrogant authority with too much power and too little intelligence, right up to the irresponsibility of world governments.
I leaves me genuinely living in fear of ever being wrongfully convicted of any crime. In a country that uses fear to control the population, be it communism, killer bees or terrorism, the real fear is the power that the public are told is there to protect them.
There are a lot of opinionated views in this book, not necessarily balanced but certainly back up with good examples and evidence.
I particularly like a spiritual side of the book, being agnostic, I find the parts of the bible the author chooses to use are not of the hypercritic and self-rigours preaching so often heard and abused but those of insightful and passionate goodness.
I would say read this book slowly, there is a lot in it, a gem on nearly every page, it would be a dishonour to the author to miss a heartfelt, genuine piece of wisdom, experienced and practiced not simple preached.

Since learning of his story through his previous book, I soon bought this one. I love how it's written and how he walks you through his life and his struggles, it's so inspirational. It also has a beautiful introduction from the revolutionary himself, Nelson Mandela. Would definitely recommend for anyone who would like to read beyond his life in prison and whoever has a interest in learning about a man's struggle for the fight for justice. With the help of many others of course such as Bob Dylan and Muhammad Ali.
Definitely a good read.
