I was talking with a friend one day, sharing with him some of my memories from when I served as an inmate firefighter. He stopped me: "Don't tell me about it, write it down and share it with everyone! It will be great to tell others what it was like as an inmate to be a part of the fight against the yearly California fires." So, I sat down and began doing just that, and I hope you enjoy this book. Being a firefighter was a wonderful experience for me, and I enjoyed going back over those memories as I wrote California Inmate Firefighter.
This is a well written story that depicts the life of a prisoner doing important and socially valuable work. It allows the reader an opportunity to see into lives that are usually hidden. A good book!

The California Inmate Firefighter was a very enjoyable read. It definitely gives you an inside look to a world you otherwise wouldn't know. I cringed at some of the things that these men are expected to do but also was incredibly moved by the selfless and hard work they do. I was inspired by the quick stories that were full of faith and courage. They also gave me a few laughs and smiles along the way.

This is a quick easy read about a group of people who protect so many lives and the state we live in and love. It gives insight to the inner workings of part of the prison system that many of us never knew existed. These people have much to offer and when given the opportunity to do positive things with the time they have to spend in prison, they rise to the occasion.

Applied, and applied properly, Contract Parole is the best possible means to ensure that inmates leave prison both qualified and likely to be productive members of society. This in turn means that, properly applied, Contract Parole is the best possible insurance against recidivism.

The idea of a reward system, with lines drawn by clearly defined goals followed by a resulting guarantee, might be just what we need. The time is right, and this is a well thought out presentation. The author's experience should be taken into consideration. He's obviously had plenty of time to think this through.
Prison reform is a MUST both for humanity and the economy....Contract Parole is a giant step in the right direction!
Contract Parole is a powerful work that proposes ──and describes how and why it will succeed──an extraordinary system for prison and inmate reform. Contract Parole offers a major way to encourage redemption in flawed and damaged humans, a way of making them whole, healing them, and helping to heal our society. If implemented, Contract Parole will have a powerful, positive effect on all of us.

I hope that the powers-that-be utilizes Contract Parole: this concept makes so much sense.
