good read.

​I heard Chris give a talk about her career and just had to buy the book to read more. A fairly short book but full of entertaining stories and some insightful comments about the system.
 
Well written and I learned things that I did not know. Humanist approach and funny in places.

         I liked this book – true stories but very light hearted. Interesting.

Very entertaining stories from one of the first Lady Prison Govs! Have passed on to a good friend whose niece is training to be a prison officer, might give her a few pointers!!

          Marvellous! Amusing, sad, enlightening and thought provoking. Chris Duffin’s highly intelligent voice comes through loud and clear. She makes us hoot with laughter, while painting a vivid picture of the decline of our prison system, and the toll on the decent people like her, who tried to do their best while fighting short-sighted politicians. Bravo!

I have never been to prison, nor do I really want to, but what Chris tells in this book is some funny stories of what has happened within the prison service and some of the people she has met over her 20 odd years within the system.

This book tells the story of a prison officer who climbs the ranks to governor. There are lots of stories as well as the insight of the job involved which is written so well and includes plenty of humour. Highly recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars a great book
Fascinating to see a book written by a governor that speaks of the situation as applicable now with the state of the service as a few years ago. Thank you for sharing your experiences.
