Review:

"This book gives a well thought-out perspective on clients and staff; and simplifies the information for each student to understand the material presented"

(Gabriel Kovnator)

"[Strengths include] readability, organization, and practitioner focus"

(Patricia L. Donze, J.D. Ph.D.)

"Very thorough and comprehensive, [Introduction to Corrections] provides a good balance between the big picture policy and societal issues with the more specific things those working in corrections on a day to day basis are faced with."

(David E. Olson, Ph.D.)

"Clearly the greatest strength of this text is that the author has been and, I get the sense still is, a correctional practitioner that is nevertheless well schooled in the social science literature."

(Joseph V. Williams)

"[Strengths include] breadth of information, clarity of text, and ancillary resources for students"

(Jane C. Daquin, M.S)

"The text presented accurate information.  In addition, it possesses different areas that other text are missing such as "What Would You Do" section."

(James R. Jones, Ph.D.)

"The book is well written with the focus from a practical perspective.  For the most part, the presentation of the chapters was very nice (pictures, etc.)  I actually liked the interactive book and am considering this as an idea to build an online course because the book contains all the extras that could enhance the online experience"

(Nancy L. Hogan)
