Mumia Abu-Jamal was famously, wrongfully sentenced to death in 1982 for the murder of a police officer. He is actually trying to get released from prison now because of deteriorating health, tho people have been calling for his release since he went in. The death row sentence has already been lessened to just life in jail with no parole. But anyway, he was a journalist before and so his prison writing is famous too. This book mixes facts and figures with personal stories and experiences. Short chapters, Easy to pick up. Really worthwhile.
