How To Break Out of Prison by John Wareham


For five years John Wareham, author of the best-selling, Secrets of a Corporate Headhunter, has lead a double life. Four days a week he helps Fortune 500 corporations select and develop leaders. On the fifth day he heads to New York’s infamous Rikers Island—the world’s largest penal colony—to teach a life-altering class he created for the inmates.

To his surprise, Wareham found that many of the negative thinking patterns that led to the incarceration of his students were also pervasive among executives, undermining their careers and private lives. Now, lacing dramatic real-life stories with penetrating insights, John shows how individuals from every walk of life become trapped in mental prisons—and then reveals precisely how to break free and create the life you were meant to live.
