Summary: Dr Lerner (Doc) is caught overprescribing to his patients and taking the extra pills, narcotic painkillers, himself. Though he is a gifted neurosurgeon, he is tried and found guilty. He is sentenced 3.5 years in a minimum security prison and tells his tales about the men he meets and his friendships and the work he does inside prison. A fresh read on a prison memoir. Definitely different. Surprising twist to his case due to a lawyers incompetence. Good use of humour. A show that not all prison staff are against prisoners, that prison is about rehabilitation. Ends quite suddenly, leaves you wondering what happens after he is released. May read again. Told in his own words.

Found through Kindle Unlimited. Fast read.
