I remember reading the book Wild, and thinking, I likely would not go for a beer with the author because I wouldn't have anything to say.
I really enjoyed this biography. Piper has a few things to say, and says them well.
Makes you think about the U.S. prison system and the amount of money tied up in it compared to their education system and you can't help but what wonder, what is wrong with this picture?
Yes, the series definitely draws from this book, but isn't nearly as racy and sexy as the episodes would have you believe. You do care, and you see growth, and the capacity humans have to be the best and worst they can be. Good read.
