    Awesome

    I loved Tom’s story, The way it was in Hamilton in the sixties. I-was a Junk House Fan, I was neighbours with Russel Wilson, his sister Raydean and I were best friends when we were teenagers, we live on the west Mountain in the 70’s . Thank You Tom Wilson for telling your story about growing up in the Hammer, I love your music, Shine is my favourite song, I could listen to that song a thousand times a day. So gland you found yourself, and your family. Junk House reunion possibly?????? Thank You, Janice Gillen

    A Boy From the Hammer Makes Good

    Tom's memoir is humourous, sad, touching and gritty. Loved it! I too grew up in the Hammer on the East Mountain and his story brought back so many memories. Reading about his life as an adult was much more painful, but it was so good to know where he's been and see him come out on the other side!

    Beautiful Scars

    I didn't quite know what to expect and was pleasantly surprised by the easy read. I would equate it to having Tom sit across from you in a bistro, enjoying a coffee and conversation. Totally enjoyable. Thank you for sharing your life and history.

    Excellent !

    I live in Hamilton, Ontario and recognize every place Tom mentions. He is like a neighbour, a kindred Hamiltonian, rough around the edges, blue collar thinker, and always the artist. Hamilton is rich with characters like Tom Wilson, you cannot find these people anywhere else. Hamilton is home to so many unique people who live life their way. They are hardworking, hard living, cussing, blue collar , big drinking, believing people who have hearts as big as their mountain, and souls of the artist, and Tom belongs right here. Great read. Tom is clearly a poet in everything he does.
