    The Good Fight...

    I endorse Jim¿s book ¿Lockdown Madness¿ account of his outstanding commitment to America¿s working professionals and its citizens. Americans need to know what it is to have their freedom taken away and to be accountable for their actions right or wrong. Again my hat is off to this great American. Jim, keep up the good fight...

    Excellent account of life in prison

    Lockdown madness is an excellent account of life on the inside of prison. Jim Daly takes you right into the middle of the action and puts you next to some of the most dangerous criminals society has to offer. 'Lockdown Madness' should be reminder to all of us that there are men and women that put their lives on the line everyday not only on the streets of America, but also behind the walls of prison.

    The title is truly appropriate!

    As a police officer my only experience with a prisoner was the time spent during the arrest and booking. Not once did I stop to consider the things that go on behind the walls of a jail or prison and this book was an eye-opener. I have a new found respect for jailers, corrections officers...whatever name you want to give them, they deserve the respect of everyone for the things that they endure! This book is a MUST read!

    Lockdown Madness

    I attempt to take the reader behind the walls of one of the roughest jails in the nation. You will see first hand what a jail is, what a staff member goes through and what prisoners will attempt to do while incarcerated. Exciting, shocking & all true.

    Lockdown Madness

    I recommend Jim's book to anyone interested in learning about what can happen in a jail. The book is exciting, easy to read and enjoyed reading it very much. Some parts were funny, awesome and almost made you feel like you were there when things were happening. Great job on the book.
