    By literary standards this book is not very well written The writer is not an intellectual and makes no pretence to be one This does not prevent a fast moving lively and sincere it seems account It is the personal note that gives the book some originality for the narration of events is at best as another reviewer points out well known As Dr Brown moves from a young offenders' institution through Wormwood Scrubs and finally to a large women's prison we come to appreciate how important her stable home life is in sustaining her in the face of many horrors Her husband comes across as the unseen hero on a number of occasionsThe book can easily be read at a sitting testifying both to its entertainment value and to the lack of any real depth of analysis The overall effect is that it is lightweight but still hard to put down

    This book is poorly written and so full of cliches it’s unbelievable Plus the author seems to think they are the only doctor ever to care about their patientsUnimpressed and definitely not worth the money

    A brilliant book which is both informative and entertaining An incredibly down to earth honest review about life inside our prisons using colourful and creative words to give a clear account of life events and people inside Above all the writer Dr Amanda Brown shows the prisoners should not be judged but helped to provide a firm foundation so that when they are released they have the guidelines and support needed to help them move on with their lives I couldn't put the book down and would certainly recommend it to anyone who is interested in people and what can be done with understanding and compassion to help the increasing prison population avoid re offending Delia Young Chartered Psychologist

    I liked the anecdotal and reflective information on UK prisons It was interesting because I have no experience of prisons and it gained insight I liked the GP's honesty and revolt at the government over tick sheets teaching which I left is no different politicians seem so good at telling other professionals how to do their jobs while demonstrating total incompetency themselves over the past three years It made me realise that jails are in radical need of overhaul and money to be spent Perhaps if the millions of pounds paid to renovate multiple royal households were better spent helping and supporting homeless which includes ex service people and those with mental illness these people would have choices and not end up in jailThe only thing I'd change is to make the book longer or to write another one Bravo Sarah

    A fascinating look into the life of a prison doctor Dr Amanda Brown became disenchanted with the new targets and guidelines implemented on her as a GP She made a hasty decision to uit the practice she lovingly built up from scratch with no future plans in place While contemplating her choices and the disappointment at how she had effectively been pushed out of a job she loved she wrote an article based on how she felt In her own words she should have 'pressed save' but instead 'pressed send' It was picked up by a GP journal and prompted a call offering her a role as a doctor in a young offenders prison Her career in the prison service beganAfter several years at Huntercombe Young Offenders Prison Amanda moved on to the notorious Wormword Scrubs followed by HMP Bronzefield She surprised herself at how much she relished the work and how she was able to make a difference to the lives of those she cared forShe is very candid about her feelings within the book and her preconceived ideas which in the main were dispelled She speaks of the people she looked after with compassion and of her colleagues with admiration She gives shocking glimpses into the the lives of the prisoners men and women how they ended up behind bars and the desperate measures they go to in order to cope Not a read for the faint hearted as there are descriptions of assault self harm and suicide attempts but none are conveyed in a gratuitous wayThis book is a real eye opener

    A moving and insightful book which allows the reader glimpses of the human beings who are serving time in prisonIt is at times tragic tear jerking moving and sometimes even funny encountering these men women and teenagers through the memoirs of this very compassionate prison doctor

    A typical book in many ways of someone living a naive life and then understanding through the prison system that ineuality is the main reason for people ending up in the system Housing is a huge issue or rather the lack of it I think that those who work within the system need to interact with the government in terms of aftercare and housing in particular with support If they don’t we’ll have a never ending merry go round of the same situations These problems will never be addressed otherwise Every single book on this subject is of the same and I cannot help but reflect on the vast amount of knowledge amassed but the total lack of support given on a pragmatic level I still feel that the system is about the people who work in it as opposed to those who need assistance Otherwise it’s a good book in that it’s readable There’s no real profundity in terms of correlation of events that lead people into prison for example the care system I would have enjoyed thought addressing how to change the parts of the system that are clearly leading to these stories II think this book is worthwhile for people who are unaccustomed to sociological analysis

    What else I can should add it to above title? Very touching giving a lot to think about and definitely brilliant narrator style & raw model of personality character empathy to follow
