Editorial Reviews


"I hope every jail and prison makes this book readily available in its library, and every probation and parole officer makes it required reading for their clients who cannot secure employment. "
- Cheri Maples, Former Assistant Attorney General, Wisconsin Dept. of Justice; Former Head of Probation and Parole, Wisconsin Dept. of Corrections

"At a time when resources are limited for men and women being released from detention, this book is an excellent tool to help them get back on their feet."  
- Earl A. Smith, Former Chaplain, San Quentin State Prison

From the Author

This book was inspired by my work with Jails to Jobs, Inc., a San Francisco Bay Area based nonprofit that is part of the Global Homeboy Network and dedicated to equipping previously incarcerated and formerly gang-involved individuals with the tools and resources they need to find employment and successfully re-enter the workforce.
Our newest venture is in the area of tattoo removal, as visible anti-social and gang-related tattoos are the ultimate "job stoppers." In addition to operating our own program, we maintain a directory of more than 300 free and low-cost tattoo removal programs in 43 states on our website and have created a how-to guide and outreach program that teaches doctors, clinics, hospitals and tattoo removal specialists how to create a free or low-cost community-based program to perform tattoo removals.
