Book recommendations

Hey everyone.

It's my PP's birthday soon and I want to give him a book for his birthday that I can send from Amazon.

Does anyone have recommendations what books are good these days for them to read in prison?

Depends on what kind of genre your PP likes - non-fiction, fiction, romance, sci-fi, thriller, action, biography etc. 

I will say that my PP loved Shantaram. But it's a book about a guy that escaped from prison in Australia and went to India, only to be locked up in an Indian jail. It's a good read for anyone I feel. I have a few fantasy/sci-fi type recommendations if you think that might be what he's into....

Is your PP religious and into sports? If so I can give lots of recommendations on those topics. Also when is his birthday? I know there is a prison memoir coming out at the start of March if he likes nonfiction.

I would recommend Victor Frankl's book "Man's Search for Meaning".
