"Rubin Carter describes his truly inspiring journey through his early life of brutality and suffering into his current life of hard-won spiritual affirmation and worldwide advocacy for the wrongly convicted. His views on the American justice system and the death penalty are outspoken, uncompromising, and ultimately accurate. Dr. Carter's autobiography presents the unique and passionate vision of a unique and passionate man." -- Sister Helen Prejean, author, "Dead Man Walking" When a judge is responsible for freeing a person whom he believes has been wrongly convicted of murder, he worries whether he will live to regret or be proud of that decision. When it comes to Rubin Carter, I have no regrets. He has justified my faith in him, and I am proud of the person he has become. He is a testament to the human spirit." -- Judge H Lee Sarokin, retired, U.S. Appeals Court "A wonderful and inspiring book. I expected gritty -- it's based on the life of Rubin "Hurricane" Carter, after all. What I didn't expect was to be so moved by his extraordinary insight, his disarming honesty and his grace. I loved the book." -- Professor Cookie Ridolfi, director, Northern California Innocence Project "An uplifting tale of how a man can transcend shackles of all sorts." -- Globe & Mail "Long story short, if Eye of the Hurricane doesn't inspire you, nothing will." -- Smooth Magazine "Essential for the socially conscious." -- Library Journal
