Okay, so you are in prison. So am I. Have you played enough cards, drank enough juice, and done enough push-ups yet? I have. I actually got bored with that stuff about 20 years ago. However, when I stopped doing the normal prison routine, my life became more boring than I can describe. I was tempted to go back to wasting my time just to avoid the boredom, but I didn’t. I believed, as you should, that we can dramatically turn our lives around. I worked diligently to figure out why I was attracted to the criminal lifestyle, how to motivate myself to get out of it, how to develop the skills I needed to function as a responsible person, how to get a college education, how to pursue a writing career, and how to be a contributing member of my community. By the time I figured it all out, more than 20 years had passed, and I had become committed to expanding education and rehabilitation in prison. So here we are, you have my book in your hands, and I have more obligations, deadlines, and responsibilities than I have ever had. I’m no longer bored, but I am concerned about you. Life is fragile, we are fragile, and prison is harsh. We need each other, and I hope, by the time you finish this book, you will agree that success is more about how we relate to one another than about how we relate to possessions. If you do, the lessons and techniques that I have used to transform my own life will serve you well because you will not have to spend as long as I did learning how to be successful. Generally, incarcerated people suffer from three conditions that keep them from being successful: a negative attitude, corrupt values, and extraordinary ignorance. Notice that I did not mention institutional repression, poverty, or racism—even though these are legitimate issues. $28.99 incl.
