Reviews "An amazing book about life in prison. 'Newjack' is about as good as it gets-by turns gripping, funny, frightening and sad. The stories are spellbinding and the telling is clear and cold.

Newjack. I bought the book Newjack because my son had just gone into the Ablany Correctional Accademy to learn how to become a correctional officer. The book was written with such detail, it was incredible as I read chapters, my son would come home and tell me almost exactly what I had read as compared to what he has been taught/5(5). I ask this most rhetorical of questions because I recently finished reading Ted Conover’s book about the New York State prison system Newjack: Guarding Sing shareholderdemocracy.comr is the kind of writer that I think anyone who has ever dreamed about writing nonfiction thinks that they would love to be, until you realize exactly what he goes through to get his story.
