The book is written in easy to understand format, as well as entertaining. It's a read you won't want to put down till your finished. From the humble beginnings of a inner city youth, misguided and seemingly not cared for, to a man full of pride, a hardened prison gang member, and assassin you get the feel that although this man has made choices through out his ife contrary to a moral way of living, God has had a watchful eye on him. All that crime, and evil hearted ways depicted in the pages of this book they are in a sense turned around and used for God's glory as testimony of the life changing power of Jesus Christ as Mr. Blajos' saivour. "Be for real" is motto Art has assigned himself to both in the ways of the world and as a humble man of God with a servants heart.

Best of the bunch... Jan. 27 2011
By T. Jenkins - Published on Amazon.com

There are a number of titles that proclaim the gospel of redemption and yet spend as more time glorifying the gangster life than offering solutions. This hard to find title isn't one of them. Art demonstrates a keen understanding of the factors that make gang membership and criminal activity so appealing to so many young men and women. He clearly illustrates the connection between the absence of economic opportunity, unstable family and community conditions, and personal insecurity in drawing people into the life of a criminal and or drug addict. There are a number of key observations the author makes throughout that reveal his passion for changing the mentality of those whom this book is crafted to attract. He is open and honest about his own frailties and shortcomings. He is also very convincing in expressing his regrets. If you are looking for a book that drops names this isn't for you. But if you are interested in reading a heart felt account of total redemption, I strongly encourage you to track down a copy of Blood In, Blood Out.

As a former member of the Mexican Mafia I can say that this is a great book. It shows the power of the lord in how he can transform the baddest of the bad. I would hope that people who read this book will also check out the web site thugexposed.com to see other Mexican Mafia members who came to the lord. Thank you Art for being brave enough to write this book.
