Overview

If you like a good prison yarn, or if you or a loved one has ever thought about working in a prison or residing in one, this book is a must! Working in a correctional setting is like no other job in the world. One lives in eight hours increments with convicted criminals that most folks want nowhere near them. If you do no not work in a prison or similar setting, imagine spending your work day around murders, rapist, child molesters, robbers, and those who would love to spit on your sandwich if just given half a chance. It is a world of brash loudness, mild too incredible stench, unexpected violence, and at times shear incredible boredom. Read, and put yourself in the most psychologically negative occupation a person could choose. Though held in utter contempt by other fellow law enforcement agencies, Correctional Peace Officers have the highest rate of cardiac disease, divorce, suicide, substance abuse, and a shortened life span after retirement. Yes, years swimming in the most toxic pools of humanity come with a price, but somebody has to do it. Without such a threat to yourself, from the warm and safe glow of your reader, get an idea of what prison staff deal with everyday.

Meet the Author

The opening to Steve Martin's classic comedy, "The Jerk" was, "I was born a poor black child." Well, I wasn't, I was born Chinese, and after many years of surgery, you'd never know it.....just joking...got to have a sense of humor. Anywho, I was born to a middle class white family. Dad was a cop to the bone and brought us up to be tough and I thank him for that. Mom was Mom, she raised us with loving care, cleaned, cooked, and did wifey things. All in all it was a pretty good up bringing with lots and lots of adventures. Unfortuately, this caused me to become addicted to adventure and have many tales and scars to prove it. As Auntie says "Curiosity killed the cat, but satifaction brought it back." I would like to share all the stories eventually, well, not all. I am a gentleman who never kisses and tells.....you get more kisses that way. At any rate, I hope this book is a success because their are social issue projects I would like to begin..Thanks and I wish you all luck.

I am a retired CA CO.  I don't usually read about prisons as I still have nightmares about it and would rather forget all the stress and BS.  That said, if you are interested in what CDCR prisons are like, and are sick of the inmate-advocate propaganda, this book is for you. Great job, "paul," whoever you are.

I liked the book. Most of the tales were amusing but some were sad.
