From the Back Cover
This is truly an autobiography of the injustice that is the American Justice System.
This is a story of how an innocent man can go to prison and learn to survive there or even thrive there in a warrior's society, where the weak are abused, used and often killed for no other reason than, they are afraid to fight ... even to protect themselves.
This is a real look at what prison life was like during the 1970s through 2003 by someone with firsthand knowledge and who wasn't content to just go with the flow, but insisted on trying to make the world he lived in a little better for himself and those around him.
This is a must read for anyone who has loved ones behind bars or is headed there themselves for the first time. This book will give them an edge and may help them survive without all the trial and error. As in a Prison Society an error can result in a beating, having to `Check In' to Protective Custody or even death

The story is a little different to get used to reading because the whole story is told as if the author is speaking it aloud. I love the way that he did this because it gives it a more real and honest depiction of true events. I found myself actually laughing out loud several times. I also found myself shaking my head at somethings that happen to Robert involving a pesky tattoo.
This story is a true story of a man who ends up spending most of his life in prison or running from it. It is often very funny, sad, and I could not put it down. I love how Robert seems to have helped out prison systems to be what they are today good for us on the out, bad for ones on the inside. After many escapes, fights and rebellious actions we have a much stronger system in place now. Also, that probably makes it not so good for inmates nowadays. However, he did do some good things as help inmates get better living necessities and be a part of making a prison a more beautiful place with flowers. There is a rough and dangerous side to him but it is balanced out with the loving and caring nature of him as well. This was a great book, and a true story which makes it even better.
Also this was read by my husband and I can honestly say in 10 years, this was the ONLY book I have seen him attempt to read and not only that, but actually enjoy and finish it! Bravo!
Part 2? :)
