An insiders view to prison

A book called 'Prison on an L plate - A beginners guide for the first timer' by Dan Angelino, priced £1.99 on Kindle, tells you all you need to know from the moment of arrest, through the whole prison sentence and release, from a very honest ex-offender. This book is well written (if you can accept the odd spelling mistake and bad grammar) but is an invaluable source of information for anyone who wants to know the inside story.
