Book review by Bob Rodeffer on
Greetings, I got a little behind on my work at the S.O., but finally had a chance to write a review on your book on amazon; “What caught my eye with this book is the fact that Mr. Shaw has the practical experience and has interviewed numerous inmates to formulate his thoughts into why the youth are failing in today’s society. Having been in corrections for 20 years and working with troubled youth for the last 4 years in the private sector, I wanted to see if Mr. Shaw’s thoughts were in-line with what I thought was happening in today’s world. You can take and read about how professors, people with PHD’s, and other highly educated people can make assumptions on what is wrong with the youth today but not having the practical experience as Mr. Shaw has, lends no creditability to those highly educated people theories.
Mr. Shaw did a excellent job with the book and it was an easy read. He pulls no punches and tells it like it is. I appreciate that. Sometimes being opinionated is tough in this world because people don’t want to hear the truth. I would encourage anyone that has children or planning to have children to read this insightful book.
