Rubin "Hurricane" Carter was rising up the ranks of the middleweight division in 1966 when he was arrested for a triple murder he didn't commit. His once-promising boxing career ended abruptly upon his conviction, and he proceeded to serve the next 19 years in prison, 10 in solitary confinement. He was finally able to clear his name after becoming the subject of hit song by Bob Dylan which in turn helped turn his case into something of a cause célèbre. But it's been over a quarter-century since Hurricane was exonerated in 1985, and people might like to know that he has devoted most of his life since to overturning the convictions of similar victims of the criminal justice system.

I don't usually take the time to review books I enjoy, but in this case, I happily break that tradition. This book, in all honesty, is incredibly profound. It is a gift. I read a lot, yet I rarely encounter either the depth or the insights such as the ones that are found in this text. Dr. Carter's voice is as captivating and as compelling as it was in his memoir "The Sixteenth Round", but this book moves beyond the boundaries of his own story into the unexpected territory of personal transformation. It has inspired me to elevate my consciousness, become my fullest self, and continue to wake up.
