I enjoy most books about the American criminals, and it's prisons, so this book has a different angle. I read the book, eventually, but the author, who helped start up WITSEC , seemed to want to take all the credit, for basically, everything. His writing did get irritating, as it was 'me, me, me.' 'I did this, I did that.' Maybe written by someone else, this may have been an excellent read.
