Poorly Written and Ideologically Driven

I've read lots of books about prison and this is one of the worst. It doesn't even explain well who the 5 types of people you'll meet in prison and the book constantly makes references to current year politics. It's similar to a lot of aspects of culture where far left political ideology is needlessly shoehorned into a place where it doesn't belong. I strongly recommend you find another book.

Life inside of prison

This is a true life account of a writer going to prison on drug possession. It is a portrait of life on the inside.
