Publisher's Summary

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.

You can't pay for this kind of entertainment!

I worked in the medical of a jail--best job I ever had! I can relate to literally everything Dr. Wright talks about. I laughed and laughed remembering. Those of us who worked in medical used to say, "You can't pay for this kind of entertainment". It may not be so amusing to those who have never been there, but I can tell you from experience, he is spot on about the illegible spelling, the illiteracy, the lunacy, and the manipulation, and everything in between, and I am only into chapter 11. I highly recommend this entertaining and realistic book.
