This volume will fit well with courses in psychology, sociology, and criminology: it contains articles on crime, prisons, creativity, birth order, AIDS education, and related chapters. Many of the findings are nonobvious, in that most people (including scholars) would not be aware of them. This is partly due to the author's inside knowledge from having worked in a prison treatment program as well as being a researcher/professor in universities. Detailed explanations are given for the basis of juvenile delinquency, what prisons are really like, how birth order and gender interact with regard to creativity (first born males and later born females score highest in creativity), and how the criminal justice system, contrary to what we would expect, typically does not imprison convicted felons. Other findings provide a view which will be of interest to scholars in psychology, sociology, and criminal justice.
