HARD MEN demand respect in all that they do – and The Gainsborough Standard have five copies of a book by Robin Barratt and Charles Bronson to give away.

Respect and Reputation – On the Doors, in Prison and in Life is out now on Apex Publishing and is all about living a dangerous life and inspiring fear.

A spokesman said: “What exactly is respect? Is it learned or earned? How do you go from being a ‘nobody’ to a ‘somebody’? How do you respect others and equally how can you get other people to respect you? Can you only be truly respected if you have a reputation?

He continued: “There is probably no one more qualified to talk about respect and reputation in prison than Charles Bronson. Tagged one of the most violent prisoners in the UK, Charlie has spent over thirty years in solitary confinement, is respected by both prisoners and wardens alike and has a fearsome and frightening reputation. In complete contrast, although he has spent much of his life surrounded by violence, former bouncer and bodyguard Robin Barratt would now prefer to take a passive path away from any conflict.”

He added: “In this fascinating book, Barratt and Bronson examine respect and reputation including how to behave in prison, how to gain the respect of others, and how to develop an awesome reputation in prison, on the doors and in life generally.”
