"Through insights, stories, cartoons, and a profound sharing of over a decade's correspondence with prisoners and their loved ones, Bo Lozoff eloquently touches on the most important issues of all our lives in this remarkable book. His practical, timeless wisdom directs us back upon ourselves for the way to true freedom; for as he says, until we're truly free we'lre all just doing time in one prison or another."-- Cover.

I was introduced to this book while actually doing time. Though I come from an Roman Catholic background and have more of an Eastern Orthodox spirituality this work helped me to cope with the stresses and shame of my situation without demanding I forfeit my Catholic spirituality. The work features quotes from diverse sources of wisdom. Unless one drills down into the fine points of dogma, the message is compatible with Christian monastic spirituality. I have been outside the (physical) walls of my confinement for almost ten years now and still appreciate the echoes from this book that help my daily struggle with freeing myself from the chains of life and existence. I highly recommend this work for anyone. The copy I read in prison was provided free, so purchasing this book is a tangible way to help rehabilitate others, too.

This was a required read for my Yoga Behind Bars volunteers. Yogi or non-yogi, prisoner or not, this book speaks to us all on one level or another. Bo is the godfather of teaching yoga and meditation to prisoners which is why this book spoke so directly to my cause. Read full review
