Summary

When the City of London police raided the home of boiler room suspect and stockbroker mason's home in 2011, what came next was a roller-coaster ride from hell taking this former city boy into the bowels of one of Europe's most notorious prisons.

Housing murderers, rapists, cartel members and this middle-class boy from Essex. Not Another Prison Diary tells you what happened in the aftermath of the UK's first "Wolf of Wall Street" style conviction.

"Want to see inside? What about "Inside"!

A story that is unabashedly true and unblemished by artistic license. This is a true account of one man's time behind bars in Modern Britain, within an ancient prison.

"In 2011 I said goodbye to my family and walked into the first day of my new life. A name in the morning, a number at night. My comfortable suburban home, swapped for a shared cell, surrounded by murderers, rapists and the very dregs of society you'd cross the road to avoid.

This is my inside story, of inside life. A diary, unlike others. Suicide, gangbanging, billionaire barbers and a shed load of heroin.

My crimes? I was the UK's first boiler room conviction.

Think Wolf of Wall Street, but a less impressive resume, slightly fewer drugs and a different accent. But that's me. And this is my no-holds-barred diary of exactly what goes on in the Queen's finest establishments.

I hope this read helps you if you are about to walk this path, or if you need a reason to think twice before doing anything a little stupid. I wrote this for you.

This is your white-collar crime to prison tracksuit fairytale, and I'm in charge of the class."

As bad as the remake of Porridge

Attempts, badly, to make his stay interesting. Unfortunately it never delivers. Bland, boring and and uninspiring. Give it a miss!

Finally an up to date UK prison diary

Found the book not another prison diary really engaging. I like the beginning intro as it felt more like a show than a book. The narration is easy to follow, I always prefer it when the writer does it. Interesting to see the prison life experience from a white collar criminal and I genuinely felt like I could understand the frustrations and the anguish. I'd say I would like to listen to his next book, but I'm sure he's hoping he avoids prison again.
