Great text book!

By Paendora on Mar 12, 2013

The author is very informed and writes well. It is one of the better books I have had to read (at a graduate level). Abadinski provides many detailed scenarios.

Great! Would purchase again!

Actually all about probation and parole

By Cherie L. Williams on Dec 29, 2012

This book was very helpful to me for my college class. It gave great info in probation and parole not a corrections book. It actually is the whole book on probationa and parole not just a small section or a chapter. Perfect for beginners or anyone interested in the probation and parole field.

The book arrived in a timely manner, in perfect condition and the author wrote the book in a 'reader friendly' style. I am using this book in my course for my degree in Criminal Justice and I am quite happy with the way it is proceeding - Thanks to Amazon! Barbara
