Real-estate entrepreneur Bill Dallas's charmed life changed dramatically when he was charged, convicted, and sentenced to five years in prison for grand-theft embezzlement. Lessons from San Quentin tells the amazing true story of how one man's life was changed for the better due to the hardships encountered at the legendary maximum-security prison. Using stories and reflections from life on the inside, Bill teaches 12 core principles that will inspire readers to use tough times to develop the character God wants them to have.
Interest level: 3. A lot of life in the fast lane at the beginning had some interest, and hearing about the life'ers in prison was interesting, but not as gripping as some stories.
Spiritual content: 2. Nothing life changing for me as far as a walk with God.
Content: The primary things of value I took from this were information about mindsets of people in prison, and life lessons taught by the life'ers. The story itself, and the Christian lessons were not real pronounced for me.
Narration: Well done
- This was a very helpful book.
This book was an honest look at how prison can change a person. It was a blessing to hear from the author's point of view how God used this experience in his life. I was inspired and encouraged by this book. I highly recommend this book.
