Staff Reviews

At last! My bookselling days are now complete! With AK Press reissuing my favorite book of all time, I can ride the rails into the sunset, as my "want list as long as my arm" customers can buy a new copy of this and not have to wait for a rare, OP copy to stumble in. Much more than crime, much more than an autobiography of San Francisco's greatest hobo thief, You Can't Win is an entertaining, engrossing testament to an era very long gone. Masterful!

— Kevin H.


An amazing autobiography of a criminal from a forgotten time in american history. Jack Black was a burgler, safe-cracker, highwayman and petty thief.
