By and large the workings of this self-perpetuating 'industry' are little known to the general public. Here is a detailed guide for all those unfortunate Americans who one day may fall into the hands of this relentless 'industry'. It is a known fact that the United States has the highest number of incarcerated people in the world, hence mathematically speaking any American, including you the reader could easily be part of this sad statistics.
By reading about events, persons and places described in this book, you the reader will be prepared (somewhat) to face this special section of society that (so far) had been locked away from you and the American public.
"There are two kinds of people my friends: The one who gets caught and the one yet to be caught..... every son of a bitch out there is guilty of something, including the judge and the jury who convicted me."

I bought this book in preparation for an upcoming incarceration. Rather than a survival guide, the book begins as a rant and diatribe by the author against the criminal justice system and the corrections system in this country. The book is rife with grammatical, spelling, and context errors. If the author is trying to lend authenticity to the fact that he is an ex-con, the book certainly reads like it is written by one. I will have to read it again to see if it has anything that will be of use to me. I will report when I get out.
