Read it in one sitting, short stories that pretty much inspire the Ignorant people on the outside to open there eyes and realise people behind bars are not monsters. Totally blown away will read again and try the recipes ... Had to make noodles half way through reading lol :p

5.0 out of 5 stars Heads up 7 Feb. 2016
By AG - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Great book, but just a heads up, if you're buying this for an incarcerated loved one they might not be allowed to have it. Apparently there's some hooch recipes in there, who knew? Haha. Probably my bad for not putting in the research, really just thought it was food only recipes. Don't make the same mistake I did!

The book arrived promptly, and in good condition. I purchased it because of both the article on NPR as well as really enjoying Clifton Collins JR in Boondock Saints 2. I like reading about food, and I was looking for something to broaden my horizons as well as helping me cheapen the cost of cooking. It is a good read, and I definitely recommend it, but I'd get it from the library first if I were you.

SPOILERS AHEAD: The thing that REALLY disappointed me was the book was primarily filler: full of recipes from celebrities and random individuals that it felt to me hadn't had any really real prison experience. Example: Taryn Manning. Actress, sure she's on Orange is the New Black, so some relevance there, but her article was just one night in the drunk tank and her recipe was just the directions on the back of a ramen package. A massive letdown.

There were some great ones though. Shia Labeouf's article was a good read, Danny Trejo was awesome as always, and Gustavo 'Goose' Alvarez's stories were humbling, chilling, and made me incredibly grateful for the lot I have. He provides a great insight into survival and the lengths people go to make it a single day, and to just how quickly the tides can turn.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating and Filling 2 Sept. 2016
By C.M. - Published on

I read about this book this morning (9/1/16) in an article about ramen in prison in the Washington Post and I've seen on prison shows. This book gives a great perspective from "behind the bars". I did try some of the recipes and they're really good! Some were a little spicy but that was easy to change. I love making salads with ramen so these are a whole different twist. Yes I have a good many ramen cookbooks but this was not just a cookbook! Thank you for the life lessons.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ooodles of noodles 30 Oct. 2016

Whoever came up with the idea to print this book out was on point. I'm not sure if I'll ever try any of the recipes in there, but the backstories were fun to read. If you're expecting a Rachael Ray/Ina Garten-type book, don't bother with this one. This is the book Anthony Bourdain probably would have written if he'd been locked up in Pelican Bay on a murder one charge. lol

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely perfect for my Fed girl, she loves it and so do her friends.. Thanx bro( Ga chain gang 2013-2015) 12 Aug. 2016
By Mike D. - Published on

Best book in category hands down.....Sent to my lady who is in Coleman Federal Prison (Satellite Camp) and she was hoping to find something out there that had realistic meal prep ideas for actual Federal(specifically because of access to microwaves changes a lot of the equation) inmates and she said this had that, and had so great short stories from some of your celebrity lawbreakers and some from unknown indivoduals but as a whole the book was spot on and a direct hit for me on the trying to earn a lifetime of booty on demand when she comes home to me, objective : ) . The seller did state that there were prisons throughout the country that had quite the lock on any and all items coming on prison grounds. Some of the more stric prisons that are on high alert about the content of the material that is being admitted on grounds have flagged theublication on the grounds that there are one or two recipes for hooch, pruno, or buck as they call it down in the dirty south camps. :) fortunately my girl is in a Big Girls Summer Camp as far as prisons go, so the book was in hand without the first incident. She did see the recipes but with attempts on production of contraband is absolute grounds for transfer, and since it was Martha Stewarts top choice for facilties, i doubt further explanatin is needed on how Sweet of a camp it is . The stereotypical Club Fed for white collar folks that are not exactly gangtas. If they can get it on compojnd then your prisoner will be a happy individual with this( watch for people trying to clip pages to take back to there personal quarters for real. the place is sweet but they are still inmates and i imagine other camps would handle the publication in a variety of different ways. Good luck to you if you send it out. SIDE NOTE( i myself personally spent 2 years of my own life in Ga Prisons. So i had a good idea of what i was searching for when she asked me about looking for something like it. MOST books with titles like this are weak on content and really not what an inmate current or former would classify as helpful in any capacity!)
