Hope On The Outside

Ensure You Have Every Chance To Succeed On The Outside With What You Learn Inside This Book!

by Bart Smith

This book also aims to reduce the recidivism rates for millions of men and women when it comes to their being released only to wind up back in jail. While the book isn’t finished, it is almost 90% done. What’s in it is amazing! I go into topics not covered by other books on the subject let alone provided to such individuals in rehabilitation programs.

This book is written for those who are being released from prison, from halfway houses or from home confinement with the aim to ease their transition back into the community — so they will not go straight from prison to freedom and then back to prison again.

This book really stands to have a positive impact, not just on those it aims to help, but their friends and families too. Everyone close to them can help them succeed with the help of this book.


Hope On The Outside is a collection of thoughtfully chosen attitudes, perspectives and outlooks to help anyone on their way out of prison or while in halfway houses and gives both men and women that extra special edge at a new life with real HOPE ON THE OUTSIDE. Inside this one-of-a-kind book, the men and women who need it most are about to get a huge dosage of positive, motivational and healthy instruction and life guidance no other training program could ever give them. Inside this book, there are these sections covering these subjects in bite-sized, memorable, and actionable steps to achieve their greatest amount of HOPE ON THE OUTSIDE!


My next guest, Bart Smith, is the author of 20+ self-help books, which include topics covering business, networking, motivation, speaking, relationships, cooking, weight-loss and fitness, personal development, romance erotica and now recidivism! He's written an amazing book for men and women coming out of prisons or halfway houses. It's kind of a personal, self-help book for them to help them have HOPE ON THE OUTSIDE. Great title.
