Despite what the other review says^^^^^^^^^^^, Eddie Bunker was NOT a prison guard. He was a prisoner. He has written a bunch of books similar to the time he spent inside. He was also in Resevior Dogs.
Do your research. I'm not sure what^^^^^^^^^^is talking about.
Edward Bunker was once a prison guard so this a first hand account of what happens inside the walls of San Quentin, from a first time to the lifer, from the gangs to those who are just trying to serve out their sentence. There are dreams and there is just plain reality.
