Twenty-four hours is a lot of time in prison, and here is a moment to moment guide of how each one goes by. A Day in Prison shows what life is like for prisoners from morning roll call to lights out. It tracks the many ins and outs of prison culture and provides a comprehensive look into the dynamics that define inmates’ daily interactions with each other, prison guards, and prison administrators. It gives a full sense of the challenges—small and large—presented to inmates as they try to survive each day. The book is structured like an actual day in prison, hour by hour, tracking where in the prison a prisoner would most likely be and what they would most likely be doing. It brings a clear sense of the unique environment that is a prison and makes sense of it for the reader, step-by-step. Based in the author’s own experience, being incarcerated for eleven years, it is as realistic a guide to life in prison as any reader could have.

The secrets of surviving prison have remained unwritten – until now. Angelo Pisano, a ten-year veteran of the U.S. prison system, is breaking the silence with this guide on how to navigate a world behind bars. With a focus on getting home as soon as possible, Pisano prepares soon-to-be inmates for confinement, whether their sentences will be served in county jails or in maximum security prisons. The advice for so-called “new Jacks” covers all types of scenarios, from fights to the complex rules that govern borrowing and lending to the best practices at the gambling table. By teaching the newly convicted about the pecking order and how to stay out of trouble with correctional officers and inmates alike, Pisano aims to get his readers out of jail as early as the criminal justice system will allow. Instead of feeling helpless, Pisano’s readers will come away from the book feeling more in control. That’s because, as Pisano writes, being confined to jail doesn’t mean being confined to bad choices. Instead, he provides his readers with workable advice on how to take advantage of the solitude and freedom from distraction to improve character, intellect and chances for future success. By reading this book, the newly convicted just might be able to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

The United States has the largest criminal justice system in the world, with currently over 7 million adults and juveniles in jail, prison, or community custody.

As a result, the percentage of these people who return to a life of crime and additional prison time escalates each year. Beyond Bars is the most current, practical, and comprehensive guide for ex-convicts and their families about managing a successful reentry into the community and includes: *Tips on how to prepare for release while still in Prison *Ways to deal with family members, especially spouses and children *Finding a job *Money issues such as budgets, bank accounts, taxes, and debt *Avoiding drugs and other illicit activities *Free resources to rely on for support

The number of people incarcerated across the United States reached two million in 2002. That number has increased since then, and the U.S. holds the highest incarceration rate in the world - one out of every 100 Americans are in prison. The rate of imprisoned females is rising at a faster rate than imprisoned males, and many individuals are imprisoned for non-violent crimes. Individuals with otherwise respectable lives are incarcerated with little or no idea of what to expect and how it will affect them and their families. This book was written to help anyone who is preparing to go to prison with the possibilities, expectations, and realities of their situation from the strain it will put on a marriage, to the conversations you will need to have with your children. You will learn everything you need to know about prison that the system is unwilling to tell you. Learn how visitation works and how often you will be able to see your family. Learn how to discuss prison with your children and how to maintain a healthy relationship with your spouse regardless of the duration of your incarceration. Learn about the unique issues women go through in prison. Learn how to write a loving letter and how to effectively bide your time in prison without succumbing to the temptations and bad influences. Learn how to maintain your dignity and the respect of your children despite everything that has happened, by consistently keeping in touch. After interviewing more than 100 past and present inmates along with their families, this book provides a complete perspective into how people respond to the prospect and reality of incarceration, and what you can do to prepare for those realities. Learn what prison life is really like depending on your crime and where you will be sent. Learn how you can reduce your prison time through good behavior and how you can: prepare your family for your departure, prepare your finances, ensure friends or family members will help your spouse, and set aside the necessary resources to maintain your family's lifestyle and comfort. For anyone preparing to go to prison and leaving behind a family, this book will provide the necessary information that no one else is willing to tell you before you go in.

[This book] takes readers behind bars, with 65 ramen recipes combined with stories of prison life from the inmates who devised them, including celebrities like Slash from Guns n' Roses and the actor Shia LaBeouf"--

The definitive guide to surviving incarceration in a federal prison. Federal Prison Handbook teaches individuals facing incarceration, prisoners who are already inside, and their friends and family everything they need to know to protect themselves and their rights. The thorough information has been compiled by an advocate currently serving time at a federal prison. His insider's view of this unknown world guides inmates through the mental stresses of confinement. Equally as important, he keeps readers physically safe by explaining how to avoid the near-constant conflicts found inside federal prisons. In detailed chapters broken down by topical areas, readers discover: * What to expect during admissions and how to greet cellmates for the first time. * How to communicate with the outside world through telephones, computers, and mail. * What types of items can be purchased from the official commissary and the underground economy. * The best ways to avoid fights, and the options that provide the greatest protection if a fight cannot be avoided. * The knowledge required to avoid scams, schemes, theft, and other problems. * What to do about sexual harassment or assault. * The types of jobs available and their pay grades. * Medical and psychological services. * Religious activities and services. * Entertainment, recreation, and keeping fit. * And much more. Importantly, this text provides detailed instructions on how prisoners can protect their rights. The author is a college-educated prisoner who has fought extensively to preserve his rights and the rights of other prisoners. Incarceration can be cruel for prisoners and their loved ones. Know what to expect and make the best of this time by staying safe, remaining safe, and building a life behind bars.
