    Story
    (67)

    As he struggles to be a good officer, Ted Conover angers inmates, dodges blows, works to balance decency with toughness, and participates in prison rituals - strip frisks, cell searches, cell "extractions" - that exact a toll on inmates and officers alike. The tale begins with the corrections academy and ends with the flames and smoke of New Year's Eve on Conover's floor of the notorious B-Block. Along the way, Conover also recounts the history of Sing Sing.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Newjack to be better than the print version?

    This was my first audio book ever and it was so good that I'm having a hard time trying to find something that grabbed and held my attention like New Jack did.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Newjack?

    Just the fact that Ted Conover was willing to undergo the grueling training, hard work and over time, not to mention the treatment he endured from both inmates and staff ALL in the name of journalism. Just so that he could actually report the FACTS of Americas prison system, or lack thereof, amazed me.


    What does the narrator bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    This was his story to tell. He lived it and his experience really shines through by having him tell it himself.
