No matter what the problem, he’s a master at taking stock of his resources and plunging ahead. Anthony Alegrete portrays his struggles and achievements with heart in full view on the proverbial sleeve and his energy level locked in at ‘turbo-charged. With co-author Holly Baker he has crafted a must-read for anyone fighting their way through the jungle.
Description
“The prison system isn’t working. Theoretically, prisons deter and reform criminals. Given the high number of repeat visitors in the country’s prisons this theory doesn’t hold up very well. The unfortunate truth is that prison often becomes a training ground and network that actually encourages further criminal pursuits. Prisoners become hardened and desensitized by the brutal setting.” Rabbit in the Jungle tells a classically American story of second chances, hard work and hope.

About the author
Anthony Alegrete is veteran of multiple entrepreneurial endeavors, a master networker, an accomplished student, and a dedicated father. In the past he pursued parallel lifelines. He worked at school, in real estate and the music industry while moonlighting in riskier lines of business. Bad luck and betrayal resulted in two stints in prison. The second time around Alegrete realized that he was putting too much effort into building a life for himself to allow things to unravel again. Anthony made a new start in Las Vegas and worked hard to make name for himself at University of Nevada - Las Vegas. A recent graduate, he is now furthering his education by pursuing an Executive Masters in Business Administration. Currently, he serves as Chief Operations Officer at Real Results Fitness and dedicates time and energy to Jump for Joy, his highly successful children’s health initiative. Alegrete believes that it’s important to take the lessons from the past and move forward. In Rabbit in the Jungle, the author shares the things he’s learned along the way in the hope that others can also learn from the mistakes of his past and make better choices for their future.
