Memoirs of Four Convicted Murderers is a practical and personal criminal rehabilitation text.

The memoirs provide real-life accounts of seemingly normal people who failed to identify and control their criminal characteristics. Among other things, the memoirs include material on drug sales and abuse; bullying, fighting; steroids; peer pressure, effects of divorce; insecurities; athletic prowess and achievements; college-life; climbing the corporate ladder; martial arts; juvenile pregnancy; crime and murder; life in prison as a juvenile; losing loved-ones while incarcerated; remorse; regret; and shame.
Following the memoirs, readers are asked to evaluate themselves for criminal characteristics. The criminal change process is then discussed, and special emphasis is given to explaining internal/ external deterrents; cut-off; thinking errors; environmental crime factors; change techniques; and 12 guiding principles to positive social development.
