Inside (One Man's Experience of Prison) A True Story This is a true story of a journey to hell and back.

In 1994 John Hoskison was a highly respected and successful professional golfer. Then, one evening, after a tournament, he broke a rule of his life by drinking and driving and on the way home he hit and killed a cyclist.

Hoskison knew he'd never escape the pain he'd caused and felt a prison sentence was justified.

As a non-violent first offender, he could have expected to serve part of his sentence in an open prison, but was instead consigned to some of the toughest in Britain; places of medieval-like squalor and violence.

"This is a must read book. Not just an insight into how prison really is but a real life story that illustrates just how quickly your life can turn upside down. There but for the grace of God..." ~John Francome, Author and Champion Jockey.

"...a searingly honest account. John Hoskison tells it like it is, as opposed to what gets portrayed on TV or at the cinema." ~Professor David Wilson, Professor of Criminology at Birmingham City University; former Prison Governor. January, 2012

    I bought this book whilst on holiday in Greece and having read the reviews and first sample chapter I had to buy it. I was that gripped i read it in 24hrs and it normally takes me a while to read a book. It is just an great insight into the prisons and how people get through it. John was amazing to keep going and stay on the straight and narrow. Great book, well worth a read.

    I am also a professional golfer and this is well worth a read, an excellent insight into the mind of a hard working, ambitious and thoughtful man who's life gets turned upside down, portraying the day to day fear, hardship and corruption of today's prison system! Would recommend to anyone!
