Writing My Wrongs by Shaka Senghor.  Shaka is a friend. We’re both Director’s Fellows at the MIT Media Lab. He spent 19 years in prison for second degree murder. He was guilty. This book is the story of how a kid growing up wanting to be a doctor ended up on the opposite path and how writing helped him heal and atone.

I’ve bought these books on Kindle and should probably get to reading them. It’s so easy to buy, and reading is hard!
