This book is amazing. Even though I know Anthony personally I had no idea about him like this. I am truly honored to have Anthony as a friend and to read hist compelling story is truly inspiring. I highly recommend anyone that has ever gone through the struggle to read this book. Even people that just want good entertainment.

Wow! I am really impressed by this book. I encourage every young man who is starting out in life and thinks the drug hustle is easy or a wise decision to make. This book shows how it is not. Teachers and especially mentors... should use this book in class and or counseling to encourage young people to have goals in life and to not get caught up in things that will end their life or their pursuit of happiness and well being. The content of this book is gold..I myself will be gifting this book to ...more

Anthony is a great example of how a person can make the right and wrong choices all at the same time but luckily came out on top and choosing to put the wrong behind him. The fact that he educated himself through out his life and learned that its better to take the high road impresses me more than anything. I hope the future holds nothing but good things for Anthony.

Anthony Alegrete lets the reader take part in his life, from the rough neighborhoods of LA, gang violence, police chases, prison riots, drug dealing and repercussions of street snitches - and the people he met: rap artists, criminals, celebrities, CEO's, academics, people dedicated to good causes in non-profit organizations and pretty much everyone in between.

I received a free copy of Rabbit in the Jungle through a Goodreads First Reads giveaway.

Anthony Alegrete's life story has potential to make a good book. Unfortunately, Rabbit in the Jungle doesn't match up to that potential. The biggest fault of the book is Alegrete's writing voice. It simply isn't relatable. The fact that my life experience bears little resemblance to Alegrete's should not keep his story from reaching me, but his writing is so idiomatic to him that I have a difficult time relat
