Feb. 24, 2014 - PRLog -- After three decades as a successful ear surgeon, William Wright, MD is bored beyond belief. He dabbles with retirement, but finds idleness infuriating. He has to do something.

Then he sees an ad for a doctor’s position from the Colorado Department of Corrections at a supermax prison. Now that, he thinks, would be different. His wife has some thoughts on the matter too. She thinks her husband just lost his mind and is on a collision course with a prison shiv.

After his first day on the job, he wonders if she wasn’t onto something. His first patient is an arrogant, callous youth convicted of five cold-blooded murders. Dr. Wright has to steel himself not to bolt.

Nothing prepares a doctor for life at the Colorado State Penitentiary. He quickly discovers treating maximum security convicts is like treating recalcitrant murderous four-year-olds. Always willing to threaten their doctors with bodily harm, they are more interested in scamming drugs than treatment.

Told with self-depreciating humor and scathing wit, Maximum Insecurity describes Dr. Wright’s adventures practicing medicine in a supermax correctional facility without, he’s glad to say, getting killed even once.

Editorial Review

“There's a doctor in the Big House, and he has some chillingly funny tales about his patients.

In his chilling and hilarious memoir, Maximum Insecurity: A Doctor in the Supermax, now-seasoned supermax prison physician William Wright shares his initiation into hard truths learned on the job. These include how to respond to ridiculous prisoner requests and lawsuits,the paperwork he came to know intimately, the irritable bowels that seem to accompany prison life, and the nth degree of idiocy in most attempts at manipulation of authority by prison denizens. When it wasn't fun anymore, Wright quit, but he left with some great stories--names changed to protect the guilty.

The portions of this book covering what Wright has learned about the history of prisons and prison life are fascinating, and the memoir is also a fast-reading character study. Not everyone will appreciate the laugh-a-minute approach, but Wright certainly provides levity, and many readers will need it. Although some people--including some prison administrators--might not care what happens to the most violent, sociopathic American citizens, the author cared about his patients, though he also made a few rookie mistakes caring too much, and got duped. As Wright notes, prisoners have all day to plan their manipulations.

Interesting, well-written, and funny, this book deserves a wide readership.”
