It’s said that 50% of the prison population are dyslexic or struggle with reading and literacy. Jason Cook, a veteran member of the 50% club, for the second time found himself on the wrong side of prison bars. Although he’d become hardened to the crime, drugs and violence that came with the territory, there was one thing that still filled him with dread…facing his fear of education. That was until a prison teacher helped him unlock a part of him that he never knew existed. To hear the whole story, listen to this month’s episode of The Codpast.
Beside book writing, Jason is also a motivational speaker too.
