Breaking free from the offender population. (Motivation).
Going Straight is a straightforward, no-nonsense guide to relinquishing the life of an M.O.P. (Member of the Offender Population) to become a happy, respectable, and successful member of society. The book is for M.O.P.s and their parents, spouses, children, and loved ones. It is also relevant for those interested in crime, punishment, and rehabilitation. An M.O.P., according to Fauteck, is anyone who lives or aspires to a criminal lifestyle, including (but not limited to) those who have been arrested, convicted of a crime, and sent to prison. Now a respected forensic psychologist, Fauteck spent nearly a decade as an M.O.P., serving several years in federal prisons (he was granted a presidential pardon in 1992). As a result, his expertise is rooted not only in clinical study, but also in personal experience. His experiences make Going Straight a one of a kind, must-read, self-help book for those who truly want to break free.
Fauteck's Website, www.go ing-straight.com, provides information and resources for those who want to go straight or want to help others do so. He is currently gathering materials for his next book, which will profile ex-convicts who have become productive members of society.
