  • Nothing personal
This book was required for a Corrections course I took. It did a good job of explaining how prison systems work, the judicial processes post primary incarceration, the history of corrections and addresses several theories about what does and doesn't work in the correctional system. I would have liked to see it address some more of procedures and policies and how they differ in alternate facilities and levels of incarceration. If you read the book, you'll be well versed in all of the above and be clearly able to identify different correctional facilities and methods, some of which don't even involve a facility. Be warned, my instructor once gave a test on the section dealing only with prison slang. That one I passed only because I'm a good guesser, as I had not read the material. SHORT ANSWER: If you want to learn about the correctional system without working for it or committing a crime first, this book will get you most of what you need to know. The authors are well versed and good at explaining the info.

If your getting this book it is because you are most likely enrolled in a corrections class. So it won't really matter what you think about the book. I ordered mine on amazon because it was a little bit cheaper than my campus book store. The book came on time and was in brand new condition. I have had another corrections book before and I actually like this one better. There is a lot of pictures and the terms are reiterated on the side of the pages making them easy to locate when studying for a test.

Came as described. Could definitely see wear on the textbook but I was surprise to see it was still in fairly good shape. I also liked how I could easily change the rental return date to accommodate my schedule.
This was my first rented textbook and I will definitely do it again. I used to buy textbooks brand spanking new... then I woke up! Never again will I buy when I can rent!

Perfect product uses for a college student on a budget. Cost savings while on a budget, renting a book is smart. I know the book is not mine, therefore, I am writting more notes, marking page #'s, a win win. Making a quick reference for test and review.

Thank you Amazon,
Margaret

The material in this book is easy to read. You will ascertain a good understanding of how correctional systems operate as well as knowledge on the staff and administration members that run the facilities.
Book was exactly what I needed for class and was cheaper than the school book store. I am getting ready to start a new semester in Jan and will be looking on Amazon for by books for those classes as well. The service was excellent and prompt. I received my book in plenty of time to start class.
