5.0 out of 5 stars A Turnkey Or Not? Tony Levy, 24 Dec 2011
This review is from: A Turnkey Or Not?: The Autobiography of Tony Levy (Paperback)
A Turnkey Or Not?

Tony's autobiography of his twenty five years in Her Majesty's Prison Service is a gripping read from start to finish. I almost read the whole book in one sitting, showing just how interesting it is. I left the Prison Service nearly ten years ago for similar reasons that Tony highlights in his book. It gives the outsider an interesting perspective of what actually does go on behind the locked gates and high walls surrounding our prisons, instead of the hype and spin that various other agencies want the public to believe. It highlights just how the staff are looked upon and treated by senior managers and the necessary support of friends and colleagues in some very traumatic circumstances. An emotional rollercoaster, having you laughing out loud at some anecdotes and also sad at the tragedies that can happen during life in prison. Tony gives a balanced view, also highlighting incidents from a prisoners perspective too.

If you only read one book this year, make it this one, you wil not be disappointed.
