"The primary strength of the book is that it provides a fairly comprehensive reader for researchers, teachers, and students interested in a detailed examination of boot camps. In addition, it consolidates a wide variety of articles that discuss the topic of correctional boot camps in one easily accessible location. Consequently, readers interested in the topic of correctional boot camps will walk away from this book with a more detailed knowledge about correctional boot camps then when began and, as such, will find the book a worthwhile read."
