Well-researched and professionally written, Directory of Federal Prisons: The Unofficial Guide to Bureau of Prisons Institutions by Christopher Zoukis is an eye-opener, a book that presents the reality in the different prisons, both state-owned and private, across the country. In this book, the author doesn’t limit himself to describing what prisons look like to the common observer. He takes the time to delve into the details of prison life, exploring the situation of prisoners, how different prisons are run, and the need-to-know information that should be at the disposal of everyone. Readers are going to find out shocking details and information that can be disturbing, understand the internal politics in each prison, and learn about the programs available to inmates.
The author has taken enough time to interview inmates and to get inside knowledge of their experiences and skillfully communicates very crucial and sensitive information about the prisons in this book. This is not a book that offers the basic information that readers can find in any directory but one that looks for that which is hidden and shadowy. And who can best describe life behind bars than those who actually live there. Encounter some of the inmates and share their stories, discover key events in most of the prisons and know who actually runs which wing of the prison and what unspoken rules govern each prison. Christopher Zoukis’ book is a great companion for anyone with a loved one facing jail time or anyone who might eventually end up in prison. It provides the information that readers should know and in a way that is compelling. Directory of Federal Prisons: The Unofficial Guide to Bureau of Prisons Institutions is the one reference book not to miss for anyone who wants to know the inside workings of prison life.
