While some prisoners' words can be sharper than a shank on commissary day, other observations can be uplifting and hopeful. Written by a federal prisoner during his 12th year of a 17-year sentence, "As A Prisoner Thinketh" is an aspiring and, at times, funny treatise of personal essays on important subjects such as love, pain, hope, loneliness, friendship, family, trust, and legacy. Carl Brock narrates his thoughts from the sobering reality of his current circumstances behind gun towers, walls, and razor wire.

A mixture of philosophy, self-help, and self-awareness, Carl's short, yet condensed chapters take the reader on an unexpected journey down the narrow paths of his deepest thoughts. The ideas expressed in this work are both unique and thought-provoking, and present sizable lessons for thinkers and dreamers alike.

While someone facing time in prison or jail may find these nuggets of wisdom particularly useful in navigating their way behind bars, everyone could benefit from Carl's uncommon and unique perspective on life.
