Descrizione del libro

29 ottobre 2013

Correctional officers face danger every time they go to work, and the public rarely appreciates the job that they do. Author James R. Palmer worked many years at the Kentucky Department of Corrections, spending seven of them with the solitary confinement unit. In this memoir, he looks back at his career and shares what it’s really like working in prison.

For example, inmates aren’t afraid to use sharp objects to hurt officers, who—just like the inmates—often find themselves behind locked doors. Correctional officers also face constant exposure to diseases and infections, as well as constant stress that can upset family life and make sleep nearly impossible. While some people might say, “If it’s that bad, then quit,” correctional officers stay on the job for a variety of reasons, including a desire to serve and protect the public.

Doing Time Eight Hours a Day shares one man’s firsthand experiences of what it’s like to be a correctional officer and rub elbows with some of the most dangerous men and women alive.

5.0 su 5 stelle A lifetime of experiences written in a nice, readable book 4 dicembre 2013
Di Peter Trzop - Pubblicato su
Formato:Copertina flessibile
The author shares life in the prison system from the perspective of a prison guard in Kentucky. Palmer does a nice job of overviewing the prison system for those having no experience with it, but not to the point of boredom. As he describes the gestalt of the job, to include prisoners, staff, culture, building, etc, he throws in experiences and stories. His humor comes out at times, with a balance of reality, emotion, duty to the position and professionalism. Unlike many books that try to show you how much the writer knows, Palmer takes the time to relate life behind the bars in a more conversational and understandable manner. The pages educate and entertain. Even to the most casual of readers, one gets Palmer knows what he is talking about.

I have to say that this is a quick read, and one that I basically could not put down till I finished it. Thanks for the autographed copy, and good luck on your second installment.

5.0 su 5 stelle Interesting Perspectives! 23 marzo 2014
Di Betty Pendergrass - Pubblicato su
Formato:Copertina flessibile
I have to admit that a book about the corrections industry was not on the top of my wish list. But Jim has done a great job of explaining a complex, critical job to highlight the good, bad, and the ugly. I hope he continues to write because he has a talent for the written word. Not only does he provide insights to the job and responsibilities of a corrections officer, he also highlights a number of social issues in our culture. Good job, Jim. It was well worth the read time!

The account is very informative of what prison procedures are like. Seems like a place noone would ever want to go.

It was very insightful and easy to read. The author told it like it was without any nonsense. It's not a very big book so it's easy to digest in one sitting.
