    Inside Life Behind Bars in America

    An in depth look at author Michael G. Santos life as an inmate in Americas prison system. Convicted of drug trafficking Santos walks you through the harsh realities of prison life. A shocking, truthful look at what an inmate faces each and everyday inside the walls of prison. From interaction with inmates and guards, to assaults, drugs, and prison officials using threats of punishment instead of incentives to maintain prison control. This book is chilling, provocative, and informational, without being a sobbing account of a person having to face the music. Michael G. Santos has captured the raw emotion of a prisoner on the front lines

    Outstanding

    Excellent book. Mr. Santos provides an excellent picture into life behind bars. Not many of us will be experience this life style but many of us are curious. Micheal paints the perfect portrait of convicts' lifestyles, unmarred by prison administrative politics. Highly recommended.
