Description
For the person who receives a long-term sentence, the burning question they face is how to deal with what appears to be an overwhelming amount of time. They think, “Where and how do I begin to tackle the problem of serving such a sentence? How do I break it down into manageable proportions so that it does not overcome my ability to plan a course of action? Where do I obtain help in answering these questions?” As a person sentenced to spend a major portion, if not the remainder, of your life in prison, the mechanics of doing time becomes part of a total life experience rather than simply an interruption in your life. As long-termers, you are not tourists in prison; you are not just passing through. Answers to questions concerning how to deal with such extraordinary circumstances cannot always be provided by family members, supporters, or criminal justice practitioners. If the answers to these questions could not be found, it might be very difficult to cope with long-term confinement in a successful and healthy way, but we think that many of these questions are answered in this manual.

Summary
The material for this manual was written out of a deep and searching need for answers concerning the service of a 25-year-to-life prison sentence. The prospect of living in prison for 25 years before becoming eligible for release was both frightening and overwhelming for me. Nothing in the experience of ordinary life had prepared me for such an extraordinary undertaking. How does one come to grips with the idea of surviving a quarter of a century under living conditions that cause pain and suffering?

Excerpt
The way we see it, the entire long-term sentence (both the minimum and maximum periods of imprisonment considered together) can be divided into three distinct stages: the Novice Stage, Seasoned Stage, and the Standing Stage with Freedom as the goal.
