PRAISE for A BUM DEAL "Hannah's recollections of his mental state at the time are almost heartbreaking in their honesty and intensity...remarkable story of personal redemption." -Booklist starred review "Here is the remarkable story behind an American tragedy, a twisted fall into unspeakable exploitation and the hoary depths of human existence followed by a redemptive return to grace."-Steve Lopez, author of The Soloist and LA Times columnist "A remarkable true story of how a chance meeting between two very different men transformed them not only into friends, but humanitarians on a crucial mission. If there was ever a lesson on the nobility of the human spirit, even under the most adverse circumstances, it is found in the pages of this incredible book." -Brian Levin "A Bum Deal: An Unlikely Journey from Hopeless to Humanitarian artfully explains the importance of understanding homelessness one life at a time. This gritty no-holds-barred memoir juxtaposes acts of unthinkable exploitation with instances of profound and encouraging exhortation." -Neil J. Donovan, Executive Director, National Coalition for the Homeless Rufus Hannah is known to millions around the world, unfortunately, as "Rufus the Stunt Bum" because of his participation in the infamous Bumfights video series. But his story doesn't end there...it is a story of incredible pride and perseverance, and a recovery few could have imagined. Rufus's story is inspiring to anyone who has ever struggled with personal demons and life challenges and wondered where they would find the strength to survive even one more day.
