Cover for Booker T’s book revealed



Booker T: From Prison to Promise
By Booker T. Huffman with Andrew William Wright

As a six-time world champion, TV commentator, and holder of over thirty-five major titles in WWE, WCW, and TNA, Booker T. Huffman knows what it means to fight. He learned long before he entered the ring, when daily survival was a fierce battle.

Booker T: From Prison to Promise details Huffman’s struggles from his youngest years. Losing his father at only ten months and his mother at only thirteen years old, Booker was forced along with his seven siblings to navigate life alone. Wrestling with hunger, poverty, and criminal influences, he struggled to survive in urban Houston and soon spiraled out of control, gravitating toward gang life and ultimately landing in prison.

Finally confronting himself while incarcerated, Booker made a promise to rise above crime and hopelessness to accomplish greater things and become an agent of change in his community. From anonymity to stardom, from rags to riches, Booker T takes us on his journey From Prison to Promise . . . Now can you dig that, SUCKA?

The book is scheduled for a September release.

    Well it’s good that Booker himself didn’t write the book on his own or we’d never be able to understand it.

  5. Frank Garrett says:

    @Captain Ass, what are you getting at?

  6. BooKer T says:

    Tell me he didn’t just say THAT!

  7. Captain Ass says:

    @Frank…..was that a serious question or one of sarcasm? If it was serious, just listen to his commentary. Did you see him on the show The Weakest Link years ago? He was asked what Holiday was in October and he said Thanksgiving. Do I need to address your possible serious question any further?

    I really enjoy reading rags to riches stories, not because I enjoy hearing people have a rough start at life but because it shows that all you need is your own determination and motivation and you can pull yourself up and out of your situation and move onto bigger and better things.
