The Criminal's Handbook is an unflinching and practical document that delivers important survival techniques for anyone unfortunate enough to be arrested, tried, and incarcerated in Canada. Each year almost a quarter of a million adult Canadians are admitted into some form of custody. If you or someone you know is facing charges or serving time, then this book gives valuable information about how to survive the justice system and prison culture. In the book, you will learn: - What can and cannot be used against you during an investigation and trial. - The signs of a bad or inept lawyer. - How to ensure that outside assets are protected if you are incarcerated. - How legal rights may be "blurred" by prison officials. - How to avoid the behaviour that creates trouble with other prisoners. - The etiquette of prisoner/guard interaction. - What seemingly beneficial programs can actually delay or prevent the granting of parole. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book is donated to programs for at-risk youth.

C.W. Michael is a pseudonym for Christopher Watts, who was convicted of manslaughter, sexual assault and sexual interference in 2001 death of 13-year-old Amanda Raymond. \\ The judge in the trial called Watts a narcissistic, defiant criminal who preyed on vulnerable girls as young as 13. Psychiatrist Angus McDonald described him as a psychopath who took pride in his sexual conquests, had a bizarre sense of victimization and was a "high risk" to reoffend. \\ Watts is set to be released from prison on November 20, 2015.
