What kind of book has had an impact on me? Westerns. The reason? They show that you can still be a bad ass without being on the wrong side of the law. They also teach you what hardships really were back then, and how comparatively easy we/I have it now.

I would like to let young people out there who think it is impossible to get a job or go to school, and think that crime is easy, that they are wrong! Prison is impossible. Everything you do [outside of prison], you are not allowed to do in prison. Think about that! I wish I had. Now I’m only a number.
