Abstract:

Jimmy speaks about the various characters he met and his dealings with some of Britain's major criminals. He reveals how petty theft and shoplifting quickly snowballed into armed robbery with raids on banks, jewelers, and security vehicles. But Jimmy's story also explains his lifelong quest to find himself and how it eventually led to triumph over adversity. At times funny and uplifting, and at others sad, above all this is a real life story that will inspire.
