About the Book

“Iceman: Ex-Con Speaks to Youths” is an autobiography written to deter teenagers and young adults from a lifestyle of drugs, gangs, violence, and criminal activities. It focuses youth toward education, rewarding relationships with parents, making wise decisions, and the consequences of going down the wrong path. It consists of valid information as to how youths can avoid the traps that lurk in the shadows of society. This book speaks boldly about the rights of victims and the fate of criminals, and the uncensored graphic descriptions of life behind bars is expressed in detail. In today’s society, far too many teenagers glorify themselves in violence and a renegade way of life, and far too many young people are filling up jails and prisons. This extraordinary book is designed to combat such negativity. It charts the life of a man, a man with excellent advice. Straightforward, no nonsense, thought provoking.
