Book review: Screwed - The Truth About Life as a Prison Officer



My name is Ronnie Thompson. Being a Prison Officer for Her Majesty's Prison Service was something I used to be proud of. I soon realised the truth of what it's like working as a screw. A fucking headache. The pressures, duties, life-wrecking conditions, danger - none of this is known to the public, but all of it makes up a day in the life of a Prison Officer.


My thoughts

Ronnie takes you on a tour through the whole prison system, giving you a detailed look into the - rotten - real system. This is not what you see in movies or read in the paper. His critical view on the inside together with lots of funny, weird and awesome anekdotes make this book a must-read!
