    1. This book presents an thought-provoking view of the American penal system, its failures, and rare successes. Peter Grant was a prison chaplain, and he vividly describes prison life. His observations of prisoners are illuminating and terrifying. Mr. Grant acknowledges that 60% of the prison population will be back in prison within three years and that America's justice system is broken. Mr. Grant presents some suggestions for realistic reform while suggesting as many as 40% of prison inmates may [...]


    2. This book is an invaluable look at the current state of the modern American prison system from the inside. Grant excels as a storyteller who combines his experiences as a prison chaplain with research to provide an insightful and compelling analysis.

    4. A very clear, and for many, eyeopening look at the US prison system. Grant is an informed critic, having served as a prison chaplain for many years, and provides thoughtful reforms for prisons as well as the legislative and judicial systems that 'guide' them.


    5. Even though a chaplain wrote this book, it was not overly religious. I appreciate the fact that he told the truth. It is a sad fact in prison you can be bought and sold like a prostitute for a candy bar or protection.
