Praise

“Sampson Davis, Rameck Hunt, and George Jenkins– M.D., M.D., and D.M.D., respectively– are something more than the sum of their degrees.” —Newsday

“[A] prescription for success.” —The Philadelphia Enquirer

“Eye-opening and moving… The Pact is a lesson in the power of peers.” —The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

“A powerful message of hope to inner-city youngsters.” –-The Dallas Morning News

“While their story is sometimes tragic, sometimes funny and sometimes remarkable, it is always inspirational.” —St. Louis Post-Dispatch

“Will inspire and entertain… The Pact is the impressive true story of three teenag boys from Newark, New Jersey, who became outstanding men.” –-Essence

“Starkly honest… a dramatic firsthand narrative detailing how each doctor managed to rise above the ills of city life– violence, drugs and poverty– to achieve what once seemed like a far-fetched dream.” —The Newark Star-Ledger

“It is probably the most important book for African-American families that has been written since the protest era… Get The Pact. It just may change a teen’s future.” —Chicago Sun-Times
