You Got Nothing Coming takes us into a corrupt world powered by violence, drugs, rape, fear and racial hatred. With brash, dark humour Jimmy Lerner tells us how the techniques learnt in management seminars have helped him survive in this hostile environment, and how a lethal act of self-defence landed him in this circle of American prison hell in the first place. Bracingly cynical and perceptive, this terrifying story is all truth.

At one time Lerner worked at Pacific Bell Telephone and sat near Scott Adams, the creator of "Dilbert." Graphic, funny, well-written and impossible to put down.
