The book highlights Craig's life; beginning as a child in the projects of Newark to becoming an IT Manager at a Fortune 500 company - and, his transition from a basketball star in the U.S. Air Force to the Poet Laureate of Irvington. It is a very interesting and compelling story of redemption, enlightenment, and excitement during an era when many young African American men were struggling to define their role in this society.
Craig's story is an American story that should reverberate throughout many folk's minds allowing them to easily relate to it. It is based in the fact that when someone decides to speak the truth they ultimately get labeled trouble for doing so. And once you are labeled trouble; how you eventually have to pay for your convictions.
