"Miret's memorable, affecting stories capture an important time in
the hardcore music scene... Equal parts music memoir and gritty
coming-of-age story, it's an eminently readable and fast-paced look
at life during hardcore's heyday... Not just for music fans, My
Riot is a valuable snapshot of an important time."--Foreword
"Fan or not, My Riot is a great look back at a singular time in musical history, written from a very singular perspective, and it was almost impossible to put down."--Midnight to Six
"My Riot is a powerful and riveting read. A brutal look into the life of a man that did what he had to do to survive."--Scott Ian, Anthrax
