“Booker’s story is incredible. You’ve heard the term ‘from rags to riches’? Booker had less than rags. . . .”
~ Doug Cataldo, Cardboard Connection Radio (July 8, 2012)
Booker T’s autobiography, From Prison to Promise, is a hell of a book, a noir true-life classic to put on a shelf next to Iceberg Slim. Booker T casts an honest, clear eye on the life of a kid who grows into a criminal, one who learns his lessons from a family and community of hustlers, dealers, pimps, prostitutes, thieves, and killers. He tells it straight, without excuse, how he figured it as he took every criminal step, and there are more of these kids and young men now than most of us would like to think about. Unlike Slim’s books, it’s no celebration of selfishness. Booker T knows exactly what he was.
~ Bruce Mitchell, PW Torch
" Booker's T journey is not only a testament to someone's will for a better life, but an inspiring story that shows you can overcome anything with the will to be better than you were."
~ Justin, OtakusandGeeks.com
“There will be times where a shiver runs down your spine, reading how fine a line he walked and lived; you will weep along with him as he recounts how death has affected him, from his parents to a girlfriend who commits suicide; there will also be times when you share in his elation, such as when he is paroled, or when he does his first spinaroonie.”
~Greg Oliver, SLAM! Wrestling
“Most of the current crop of wrestlers’ biographies tell funny anecdotes of road stories or fond reminisces of allegedly sold-out, jammed-to-the-rafters crowds. Some even scratch the surface of the wrestlers’ private lives. In Booker T: From Prison to Promise, life before the squared circle, the first volume of Booker T Huffman’s biography, you will read the most intimate details of the early life of one of the most famous American wrestlers of this generation. Say this for Booker T: he does not hold anything back in this book.
~Robert Weir, WrestlingFigs.com
“An uplifting story of setting one’s life straight, Booker T: From Prison to Promise is well worth considering for fans of Booker’s work and of memoirs about going straight.”
~Midwest Book Reviews
“The book is refreshingly honest and a raw tale of how one man overcame quite a bit of adversity, some of which was bad luck and some of which was self-induced, to become a success.”
~ Joe Lanza, Voices of Wrestling
