HOW TO SURVIVE A BULLET TO THE HEART
The Uncensored Confessions of Maximum Security Prison Inmates

John Wareham transforms the poems and writings of maximum security prison inmates into a startling life-changer for Everyman

 

"Victims abide at both ends of a gun. Bullets fly to the heart and from the heart. Wounds that exist before the pulling of the trigger are the wellspring of crime and the font of redemption." -- John Wareham,
Chairman & CEO Eagles Foundation


NEW LIVES FOR OLD
That's the lofty mission of the Eagles Prison Program. But is that just a pipe dream? Judge for yourself as maximum security prison inmates share their journeys from innocence to criminality, arrest to bewilderment, conviction to incarceration, despair to hope, defeat to victory, vice to virtue, and lawlessness to love.

 

"To pen a prison poem is to unlock the cage along with the heart. This deft collection sparks a potent reciprocity of spirit as one harkens to the sound of wings in the night." --Professor Jess Maghan—Director, Forum for Comparative Correction

"Blood & tears, sorrows & regrets—every heart-stopping moment is captured & freely shared by healing desperados: I love this book." Brian O'Dea—Author, HIGH: Confessions of an International Drug Smuggler
