Format: Paperback
this book was somewhere around 90 pages long, with larger than average print. i was done reading it in less than two hours. it kind of reminded me of a childrens book with the simplicity of which it was written. this is the worst book i've read written by ex inmates/guards who spent time on alcatraz. id pay $3 for this book, but paying $18 or more was a total rip off. i'd strongly recommend not buying this book unless you are rich or you are buying it for a elementary school child. go with the book written by ex inmate jim quillen. i couldnt put quillen's book down and it was a much more detailed account of his entire life and includes lots of details about his time spent on alcatraz.

I like this, because its amazing how a lot of the prisoners especially this gentleman wrote about his experience. That's why I gave it five stars. I've been to Alcatraz once I believe in 2006 on vacation ,and that I would love to go back someday to meet some of the ex cons and guards that lived/worked on the rock aka Alcatraz. Plus, I really love history and this is one of those historical places.

If you are interested in a true account of life on Alcatraz, this is the book to read. Written by an ex-prisoner, it details life as it was on the island. No glossing over, no varnish. It also details how Alcatraz changed the author's life (for better) and the epiphany he had on the island that lead to this change. It is marvelously illustrated. A great, informative read. I strongly recommend it.
