5.0 out of 5 stars Must buy!, 4 Oct 2006
This is a terrific but disturbing insight into how justice is done outside of the modern world. I encourage anyone to read it if not only for the eye-opening accounts of day-to-day prison life. Many parts of the book lead you to ask yourself "what would i have done in that situation" or "how would i have handled it". The answer is you wouldn't which is why this book is a fantastic advertisement for keeping your feet firmly on the ground and not doing anything as stupid as trying to smuggle drugs through a corrupt ridden country. Buy it, read it, love it - take my word for it you won't be able to put it down.
