Editorial Reviews

This DVD is by Dr. Paul Karsten Fauteck, author of "Going Straight: An ex-convict / psychologist tells why and how."

Tells how to build a rewarding pro-social life, from the perspective of a forensic psychologist who lived down an early prison record and received a presidential pardon. Addressed to offenders currently incarcerated, it is also educational for parolees and probationers, correctional personnel and anyone working in rehabilitation, families of offenders, and anyone at risk for joining the criminal population. Details the important difference between a pro-social life and an antisocial life, which involves much more than whether the individual commits crimes or not.

Some of the topics covered are attitudes toward work, importance of learning, resisting temptation and surviving hard times, impulse control, anger management, earning true respect instead of evoking fear, families and children, romantic relationships, dealing with police officers, managing money, impulse control, learning to plan ahead, and legitimate ways to enrich one's life.

In this informal, notably home-made presentation, Dr. Fauteck is on camera most of the time, addressing the viewer in a friendly, sincere way, but sounds and graphics are used to hold attention. Four parts, intended to be viewed in order, total 1 hour 29 minutes.

While the production quality leaves something to be desired, it is not a big distraction because the content is so rich and rewarding. You can learn a lot about why folks pursue crime, and popular crime myths will be shattered along the way (the usual tired explanations for crime fall flat after you see this). The content resonates with what we know about crime, but too often experts shy away from it because it does not fit with convenient socio-political views and orientations. Dr. Fauteck has provided an incredible public service by offering this affordable DVD. 'Hopefully some offenders will be helped by it. And there are some life lessons drawn here that should be good reminders for anybody. But the educational value alone is more than worth the price of admission. Thank you Dr. Fauteck. A+ for substantive content.

This video is full of great advice on how to turn your life around for good. It focuses on people recently released from prison and has some great information on how not to end up back behind bars. Dr. Paul Fauteck is a "regular guy" who's been there before and knows what to do and what not to do. From what I understand, he makes no profit on sales of this video. It is definitely worth the price.

This is a compelling, instructional felon-to-felon video that any ex con will find very easy and calming to
watch. The authority and reasonableness of Dr. Paul Fauteck's voice is a thing of beauty. The no frills,
close-cropped image of Dr. Fauteck who is dressed in neutral tones, along with the rhythm, the phrasing
of his words has a certain messmerizing quality. Its effect is to take the confrontational edge off his
straight forward message of personal responsibility. This former felon, who deliberately chose his career
in crime at age 13, knows the streets, the cons and how they con themselves as well as society. For
anyone who works with offenders, this video can be a true pathfinder.
