From the introduction:
Live your dreams. That’s what they told us when we were kids. You can do anything you want, just believe in yourself and work hard. They told us that one too. Look at me. Do I look like I’m dreaming? Sometimes the furthest you can dream is surviving the night, hoping to wake up to see tomorrow. If you’re lucky, really lucky, you get your shot. At getting big, getting even, or getting out. You got to take your shot if you see it. And hope, don’t dream, that it all works out.
