Mike Piscotta wrote this book to tell the story of his experience as a 10-year inmate in Florida prisons. A conviction that he had coming due to his own foolish and criminal activity. When the ‘wake-up call’ came, Piscotta took steps to make necessary changes in his life to survive in prison and be prepared to survive when his sentence was over. He received the full 10 year sentence, not one day short. You can learn more about Mike and Robin Piscotta at FromPrisontoProsperity.com
I found it good to see a guy come to see the light! As Mike Piscotta relates his prison experience, he makes no excuses and does no blaming beyond himself. He probably could have pointed more blaming intolerant fingers at his family who were the heavy influence of bad choices in their kids.
However, when one determines to set one’s own way and work his way out of a pit, there is little time for blaming. The FOCUS that Piscotta recommends is definitely required, whether one is in formal prison or ‘prisons of our own choice’ in other circumstances.
I admired his go-getter attitude and goals to learn and earn. We have to understand that not everyone is so inclined to entrepreneurship. However, I saw several things that most anyone could apply to develop and achieve better things for themselves. People who read the book and who are fortunate enough to be in speaking events or learn about a special social media group for people who want to improve their lives and prosper. Just READ the book to get the information you need to know.
I was pleasantly surprised by a well -spoken book that did not turn into an infomercial for some kind of coaching. Made me respect this family even more as I have watched them on social media for quite awhile without knowing the details of their story. Their Christian testimony is uplifting and encouraging. I recommend a serious, but fast moving business read. I think it has application for more people than prisoners, but do plan to recommend it to a friend who is ‘doing time.’
