I really did not know what to expect when I picked this book, but I was really pleasantly surprised. I thought that Ross Kemp presented a balanced view of the gangs, speaking to both gang members and police. He also didn't sugar coat there brutal crimes or try to make martyrs of the gang members. This book really made me think outside of the box and see the bigger picture about gangs, such as poverty, abuse, government parties etc. I did not know much about Ross Kemp, apart from him being in Eastenders but after reading the book he seems a real sweetie pie.
