    Tale of transformation reads like a thriller

    For years I’ve known Floyd Forsberg as a reliable source whose every news tip panned out. Now Forsberg has written the best personal indictment of America’s horrific prison system that I’ve read since Ted Conover’s 2000 classic, “Newjack: Guarding Sing Sing.” Forsberg’s plainspoken prose tells a soul-searching tale of survival and transformation that will touch readers from all walks of life. The angry young man determined to be the country’s best bank robber has emerged as the sage author of a life story that reads like a thriller and traces his daring escape from, “The Toughest Prison of All.” -- Richard Read, two-time Pulitzer Prize winner, The Oregonian/Oregonlive.

    Complicated

    This book would benefit from a listing of all the people mentioned. Very detailed. I would have liked a shorter book.

    Worth the time...

    An interesting perspective and analysis of the US penal system by someone who has lived it from the inside out.
