Biography: At 16, Bobby Cummines became one of the youngest people in Britain to be convicted of carrying a sawn-off shotgun.

Bobby is one of the UK's leading penal reformers and has advised Ministers and Judges as well as public and private sector agencies on prison and rehabilitation. There are a lot of books around about the various criminals and their exploits but few end on a high note, and this has a welcome note of positivity. Eventually Bobby was sentenced to 12 years in Britain's most notorious prisons, along with the Krays, Charlie Richardson and the Yorkshire Ripper. You feel all emotions when reading this book and it is a very powerful honest account of a difficult life but of someone who came through. He did, however, feel sorry for one death; a hostage in a routine bank heist died due to suffering a serious panic attack, where he vomited and choked on a gag.No missing or damaged pages, no creases or tears, no underlining or highlighting of text, and no writing in the margins. I Am Not A Gangster is an explosive account of life in the criminal underworld by one of Britain's most dangerous men, but above all it's a remarkable tale of redemption with the biggest turnaround in gangland history. He has said that if he had not wanted to escape criminal life he would have used these techniques, such as building bombs or smuggling illicit goods.

It's a shocking insight into a society where the rules are made by gangland leaders and if anybody dare break them, they have to deal with the consequences.Cummines has criticised the system of high-security prisons, which places many brilliant criminal minds in one location and thus enables them to teach each other tricks and establish connections. The book comes across as a memoir interview, but it does seem to lack any sort of real passion, but that might just be reflective of times Bobby grew up in. This led authorities to designate him as a class "A" prisoner, causing him to be frequently moved from one prison to another.

Cummines claims he was taught to dehumanize anyone he killed, to think of them as vermin, [2] saying that if you did think about it then you would think of their families and guilt. This book was thoroughly enjoyable from start to finish, and has now made me want to read up on the Richardson gang. Only this time his efforts saw him go from custody of Her Majesty's Prison Service to coming face-to-face with the Queen herself. Cummines said that with a criminal record, it was incredibly difficult to find another job, and so thought "if you're gonna make me a bad guy, I'll show you how bad I can be. Eventually Bobby was sentenced to 12 years in Britain’s most notorious prisons, along with the Krays, Charlie Richardson and the Yorkshire Ripper.Cummines turned his life around in prison after a conversation with Charlie Richardson, who urged him to become educated and earn money without hurting anyone.

I had the honour and pleasure to meet the author recently and found him to be an entertaining an interesting travelling companion, but as there are a lot of people in the world who claim to have been there , done that et cetera , I take my tall tales of the old days with a pinch of salt, perhaps he picked up on this as he recommended I read his book.
