Couldn't put it down. A great read.
Steven really tells all about prison life and his own experience in trying to keep a positive attitude in a negative environment.
His victims are many, but the way he explains his mind set makes you almost understand why he has done what he's done, minus his first 'crime'. But it seems even he is at a loss for why he did what he did except the power of alcohol, which is a powerful, cunning, and baffling substance in itself. Everyone has problems and issues. How we react defines us. Being in prison adds many factors that most don't understand. This book details the extra factors the rest of us hopefully never will have to endure.
