Carlos M. Christian made bad choices at a young age.

At thirteen, he became involved with the distribution of illegal drugs and eventually served ten years in prison. From nineteen-years old until he was twenty-nine, Christian was locked away from society with nothing to do but think.

All that time could have been wasted...but Christian took an unusual path: he graduated from Marion Technical College for business management with a 3.83 GPA and dedicated himself to improving his own life and the lives of those around him. Upon leaving prison, he beat the odds. Instead of returning to his old life of crime, Christian got a job, bought a house, and got custody of his son.

An alarming 76 percent of American prisoners are rearrested within five years-so how did Christian buck the trend? The truth is that he found strength and purpose within himself...and the rest followed.

In 2011, Christian founded the Starts Within Organization (SWO) to help other convicts become positive, restored citizens. And in Prison without Bars, a guide for those who want to take value from prison time, Christian shares practical advice about prison education, support groups, and some deeply moving personal revelations. Remember: when healing and personal development start within, no one is beyond redemption.
