    "I think that this is a very well written autobiography from one of the founding members of the street gang, the Crips. It gives very thoughtful insight to what his life was like and why things turned out the way they did. I thought that it was an interesting read."

    "I had an assignment in class where I had to read a book that starts with the letter b. A friend of mine suggested Blue Rage, Black Redemption as I am a huge fan of non-fiction over fiction writing. The book was really intriguing and surprisingly exciting for a memoir and was extremely hard to put down. So buy it if you don't plan on doing much else than reading for a few days."

    "This has to be one of the best and most iconic gangster books. Not only is it written by one of the Crips actual co-founders, it weaves an amazing story about the development of the Crips gang and the consequences of joining a street gang. It's very moving and gives an inside perspective into the life of a street gangster."

    "This book is very rewarding to go through as it allows the reader to get in the mindset of a former hardcore gang member and why certain actions were taken and how he was influenced. The story paints a picture of what gang life in Los Angeles at peak in the 80s were like. Stanley's story is personal and shares his what he had to go through because he was involved in this lifestyle. The story is great for teens to learn from as well as being very interesting reading from a personal point of view."
