Taking part in a prison ministry for about 8 years now, I took interest in this book when a reference was made to it somewhere. The author's plight is unfortunately typical of many others who get caught up in the legal system. His description of conditions in jails/prisons including the mentalities of inmates and correctional officers alike is right on target. And, his conclusions on the last couple pages of the book are extremely well-founded.

The book is a page-turner. Obviously, the author must have had the help of some professional writers.

The big question still lingering in my mind is what ever happened to him? The book was published in 1988. Now, over 20 years later, did he ever get paroled? It would be nice to know.

A fascinating book and the author manages to capture the era as well.

This book is a really interesting read. Mr. Jones may have been a common criminal but was really determined on not staying in jail. For all the law officers is shows how you should never turn your back on inmates. Fortunately Mr. Jones never killed or injured officers.

Hacksaw is a book written by Edward Jones, escape artist extraordinare. He sucessfully escaped from prison fourteen different times, making him somewhat of a criminal legend. Unfortunately for him, escaping fourteen times means that he got caught that many times as well, which does not say much for his ability to evade the police and FBI. While excessively good at escaping from prison, he was absolutely stupid when he was out. He made all kinds of major mistakes which landed him right back in prison again.

This book, besides being a fun read, illustrates the contemporary prison problem in the United States. Mr. Jones was nothing more than a misbehaving child when he was first given a stint in prison. It was in prison that he became a real criminal. It was in the place that he was supossed to reform that he learned to purposely break the law. This same thing happens to many in prisons today. A teenager is jailed for reckless driving or the such, and while he spends his few months in jail, he picks up a new lifestyle from the experienced criminals he is living with. Hacksaw is an excellent picture of why the criminal punishment system in the U.S. is suceeding only in producing more criminals. Mr. Jones realizes partway through his life that he is in a Catch 22: he is running from the police because he has been sentenced to life imprisonment for multiple escapes, and either he turns himself in and spends his life in prison, or he keeps running but can never live a normal life because he must always be moving from place to place to stay ahead of the law enforcement. In either case, he loses. In the end, he decides to give up trying to keep escaping, and decides to write books from prison instead. I believe he finally made it out of prison on a legal technicality, and was freed to live a normal life.

Overall grade: A
He was in the most secure part of a new, high-tech lock-up in Shreveport, Louisiana. There was only a mattress on the floor and the light was on 24 hours a day so the camera could see into his cell. He found a rubber band and a small piece of soap in the drain. Another prisoner slid a plastic cup down to him. "It much to escape with but it would have to do." With those tools Hacksaw escaped from one of the most secure jails in the country.
He was brilliant as escaping. It is sheer delight to go along as he narrates them. He was a complete knucklehead about getting caught doing stupid things and getting sent back to jail. That part is almost painful to read. I highly recommend this book. It is as exciting as anything I've ever read and I've read a lot. His narrative style is excellent. You feel like you are right there in the cell with him. It is stifling hot and you want him to get you out of there- and he does.
