    Warning this is a rant.I thought this book would provide first hand anecdotes about life in prison it did I thought it would get into some of the moral ethical, financial and societal issues about jails and prisons barely What I was not expecting was a clearly racist and misogynistic author, and I don t use those words lightly In fact, I try to never use them about people I don t know personally.However, when an author, trying to come off as witty, says something like, it s hard to te Warning this is a rant.I thought this book would provide first hand anecdotes about life in prison it did I thought it would get into some of the moral ethical, financial and societal issues about jails and prisons barely What I was not expecting was a clearly racist and misogynistic author, and I don t use those words lightly In fact, I try to never use them about people I don t know personally.However, when an author, trying to come off as witty, says something like, it s hard to tell when Hispanics turn pale, but Diego tried, it pretty much discounts the rest of what he has to say Another gem when a patient accuses the good doctor of raping him, Wright s response is nauseating I m on Medicare I m a little past raping age Whatever that means He is then presented with a photo of the accuser and quips, He s not that good looking Do you think this is the best candidate I could come up with Gag Finally, the cherry on top of the rape anecdote which he is cleared of , is stating that at his age, he guesses he should just be flattered.My other large disappointment in this book was his generalizations that he refuses to back up with statistics or research Inmates arelikely to be raped if they ve been convicted of a sexual offenseif they succumb, they are irrevocably marked as punks much like a woman who has been the victim of rape In your opinion And this one Not all jail inmates get out via suicide Oh, really Thanks for that ground breaking tidbit.I could continue, but seriously, don t read this book I can t believe the man is a twice published author

    Following on from its predecessor where the author details his time working as the medical officer in Colorados infamous supermax prison, Dr Wright continues his story whereby he is employed to the smaller county jail Should be a piece of cake after dealing with terrorists and the criminally insane right Not quite so muchLike his first book, Wright keeps his sense of humour and like mentioned in my earlier review, not every reader will find it appropriate Some of what the author says did r Following on from its predecessor where the author details his time working as the medical officer in Colorados infamous supermax prison, Dr Wright continues his story whereby he is employed to the smaller county jail Should be a piece of cake after dealing with terrorists and the criminally insane right Not quite so muchLike his first book, Wright keeps his sense of humour and like mentioned in my earlier review, not every reader will find it appropriate Some of what the author says did raise my eyebrows but even so I did enjoy the book and devoured it in less than twenty four hours.A fascinating insight into healthcare behind bars Ideal for lovers of true crime, abnormal psychology and criminology like myself

    I just finished reading, Jailhouse Doc and I found it very interesting Dr Wright is very candid in his telling of what really happens in a jail I read some things that I was not aware of This is the kind of book that people should read before they do something that will put them in a jail I give this book a 4 5 I was given this book for the purpose of a review and all opinions ar my own.

    Enjoyed I enjoyed this book having worked previously in the prison world myself It was interesting to see it from the doctors point of view At times I laughed at what he had dealt with because it was so similar to things I had seen or dealt with myself.

    It was a good read, but coming from someone who worked in a prison, and currently teaches in the Criminal Justice field, I found Wright s writing style a bit callous and too curt I would have liked to see him expandon some of the stories, as the people behind the stories are what are interesting to me at least Afterall, working in a jail prison, in any capacity, is a human services related position that requires a great deal of empathy yes, they are offenders, but they are human being It was a good read, but coming from someone who worked in a prison, and currently teaches in the Criminal Justice field, I found Wright s writing style a bit callous and too curt I would have liked to see him expandon some of the stories, as the people behind the stories are what are interesting to me at least Afterall, working in a jail prison, in any capacity, is a human services related position that requires a great deal of empathy yes, they are offenders, but they are human beings too I don t think he portrayed that very well in his writing I enjoyed his humor, and could relate to that commonly referred to in the field as gallow s humor but feel he missed the mark on relaying the human side of things

    Book received through Edelweiss.This is the second memoir written by Dr Wright This one focuses on his time as a doctor in the county jail in Colorado Springs, unlike his first one that took place in a SuperMax prison He talks about some of the unusual complaints by certain patients, the difficulty in long term treatment of those in a county jail, and the complaints from patients to their lawyers or even their mothers trying to get meds they don t necessarily need I really enjoy books like t Book received through Edelweiss.This is the second memoir written by Dr Wright This one focuses on his time as a doctor in the county jail in Colorado Springs, unlike his first one that took place in a SuperMax prison He talks about some of the unusual complaints by certain patients, the difficulty in long term treatment of those in a county jail, and the complaints from patients to their lawyers or even their mothers trying to get meds they don t necessarily need I really enjoy books like this, it gives you a glimpse into a part of life that most people will never experience or even know about Due to the way he makes references back to his first book, reading it could be helpful but not necessary However, I will be reading his first book as well since I enjoyed this one
