A good book about going to prison and adjusting.

"A Realistic/No-Nonsense Guide: Surviving Prison"


I read this the other day and it is actually what made me want to come on here. It isn't a long read. It isn't full of God or aa/na, or any of that. He takes away some of the mystery surrounding our situations by explaining the process. He isn't advising about law, just so your night living in fear of the unknown.

It also explains about going to prison as a new offender. A few tips and scenario's with advice. All and all, it is a book that I wish I had way back when.

If you look it up, the kindle version is free. Check it out and see what you think.

Would it be helpful to someone who's been down for a couple years already?

Sorry for the delay, life got in the way!

Full disclosure, I am the author. I am new at this and did not know how to go about talking about it, this was probably not the best way. Sorry for that.

A better choice would be "Making The Most Of Your Time" by Hex, the Helpful Ex-Con. This book covers arriving in prison, school, requirements, work assignments, and many other aspects of doing the actual time. Includes chapters on attitude, for those who can't change, and rebuilding/maintaining relationships.
