A combination of first-hand observations, psychological theory, and critical philosophical insights into a forlorn culture which few endeavor to understand, but which for the lack of such understanding we are all very much at a loss.

Editorial Reviews

Anonymous Reviewer
This intimate look behind prison walls written by a former prison inmate who served seventeen years, outlines with brutal honesty and poignant insight the horror and humiliation of being incarcerated. From accounts of abuses by trustees, tenders, guards, and even fellow inmates, to opportunities rehabilitation, this book shows us what it's like in simple, honest terms.
Joe Blair
From the perspectives of persons trained in professional psychology and social thought, and from the perspectives of those who have seen things from the 'inside out,' John and Pamela Indo bring experience, knowledge, and passion to speaking to the destructive aspects of our penal system. They are voices who need to be heard by those inside and outside the system who can take action to change the existing state of things for the better.
