Front Cover
Supreme Design Publishing, Jul 30, 2011 - Social Science - 447 pages

 Supreme Design Publishing continues our mission of mentally preparing the Urban Community for the potholes on the road to success. Authors Ahmariah Jackson and IAtomic Allah mentally condition the reader for one of the most dehumanizing psychological processes known to man: incarceration. They offer true stories, unwritten rules, personal anecdotes and guidelines for managing, all learned on their own tumultuous journeys through the correctional system. First timers and seasoned prisoners alike can learn not only what to expect of the system, but how to keep as much sanity and dignity as possible in such inhumane conditions. This book not only has the power to scare its reader straight, but also has the knowledge to empower readers to do the time without letting the time do you.
