Steinberg did not really know what he wanted to do with his life. Almost on the spur of the moment, he applied for the job of prison librarian. He was not a librarian by profession and he knew nothing about prisons either. It turned out to be a job he loved and hated. And it was a job that provided lots of terribly interesting anecdotes that make up the core of this book.The first chapter was brilliant. The second chapter was strong. But by chapter three, things began to slip. In the end I have to say that this is yet another book that needed an editor.
