As I was writing Education Behind Bars: A Win-Win Strategy for Maximum Security, I was focused on making it the best book possible. Not only the best book possible, but a better book than my perceived competition’s titles. At the time, I was a fool.
Now that I’m enjoying a bit of occupational prestige, I see how shortsighted my views were. Education Behind Bars is not about me. It is about the cause of prison education. And as such, I should want for a better, more comprehensive title to appear even now as my title was released about a year ago. After all, this could do nothing but advance the cause of educating prisoners.
