    1. I've read several books about mass incarceration recently. This book was by far the most uplifting one of the set. The others were more informative about the problem, but this one had a feel good quality that made it a joy to read.I personally think we live in a far to punitive society. I totally think we need correctional facilities, but I feel that our current correctional system isn't working. We get so involved in the naming and shaming of the crime and yet we fail to help rebuild the indivi [...]
