Publisher's Summary

Warning: This is not the actual book Orange Is the New Black by Piper Kerman. Do not buy this summary & analysis if you are looking for a full copy of this fascinating book, which can be found back on the Amazon search page.

In this summary, you will discover:

  • The prison work system, where inmates are often paid about as much for their labor as people who work in factories in developing nations.
  • Most of her new neighbors in Prison Dorm B were African-American; spending time with them helped Piper to recognize and overcome some of her more subtle racial prejudices.
  • Sometimes inmates would flirt with male officers; other times, male officers would give unwelcome and uninvited sexual attention to the women.
  • Most federal prisoners, both at the time of Piper's incarceration and today, are non-violent drug offenders.
  • Piper finally admitted fault and revealed a sense of remorse for her actions when she described herself as a party to the drug addictions of some of her incarcerated friends.
  • You will get all this and much more! From start to finish in just 30 minutes!

      "Don't waste your time, get the full book"

      It seems this is part of an 'unauthorized' book summaries. (i got two) At the beginning the book recommends you get the full book first and use this as a guide, which is ridiculous IMO.

      The bigger problem is that it is repetitive, shallow and soulless. Everything is repeated twice. A summary of a chapter and then a summary of the summary. There is not enough detail, there is no flow. The focus is in summarizing each chapter, not to tell the story in a brief form, or to share the key learnings from the book.

      Most importantly, there is no emotion. I got the gist of what the full book is about. but now it is ruined for me. I don't have any interest in the full book or in watching the TV series.

      Don't waste your time
