I had to purchase this book for a corrections course, since my major is administration of justice. The book store at my campus were charging an arm and a leg for these books used and no longer had any books to rent available. I must say that this book did come a little abused and marked but besides that everything in regards to shipping and receiving the book in a timely manner was great. As far as the read, this is a great book for students. Its not all boring like most course literature. Its very informative while still cutting to the chase. I took this during summer session so hence why its in brief. If you are thinking about going into corrections this is a great book to read, even if you're not in school. So glad my professor chose this book for the course.

I wish I had known about Amazon textbook rentals while in college... Through my undergrad all I do is rent textbooks. A major financial weight lifted from my shoulders.

Love this book easy to read & the the key terms are define in each chapter. I rented the book but I ended up buying it.
