Get this book if you need serious, real world-oriented pointers on how to stay out of prison once freed. There are many books out on the subject but this one is short, concise, and hits all the nails on the head.

This guidebook is full of excellent pointers and is extremely realistic in its advice, which is most valuable to those who actually have to live as ex-prisoners. Highly recommended for use in both male and female prisons and jails, rehabilitation programs and juveniles facilities.
