Prison: A Survival Guide

Carl Cattermole spent a year in HMP Wormwood Scrubs and HMP Pentonville. Out of this experience came his must have practical guide to surviving prison.

Prison: A Survival Guide offers advice such as how to make a salad dressing in prison, what to take in your 'bang up bag' when you go to court and your rights accessing support and health care if you have a chronic illness or are disabled.

Labelled as the 'cult guide to UK prisons' you can read more about Carl and this book in this article in the Guardian.
