About the Book

Jimmy Jack was a respected citizen with a hidden secret: He had been an alcoholic since his early teen years. Despite obtaining three Master Degrees and being wildly successful in several fields, it was not enough to keep him sober. After getting a DWI, Jack served twenty-one months of a four-year sentence in one of the most out of control and violent prisons in the state of Texas. In Jimmy Jack: The Alcoholic Teacher, he narrates his journey and describes how his prison experience literally saved his life. He tells how he, as a genuine Christian with real-time faults and attitudes, was simply trying to survive and come out of the horrible situation a better person. Jack documented his story, and the stories of other inmates, by writing two pages each day for 1 year. In this memoir, he entertains with humor, teaches about the healing power of Jesus, demonstrates how a respected member of society navigated incarceration, and offers hope for a better tomorrow.
