You Choose Stupid!
By: Dave Robert Contreras
About the Book
You Choose Stupid! is a compilation of experiences, hard work and mistakes that have been reduced to words in a very short book. It is the product, not of the author’s counseling, but garnished from the many wasted lives he has seen who have gotten involved in the criminal justice system. It is a menu of the mistakes that ruin these lives.
The author has catalogued many of the mistakes people make in life which could have been avoided. With a vast wealth of experience, the author can, with all degree of certainty, say, “You follow this advice, you will have a good, long and prosperous life.” It is the goal of this work to open the eyes of the readers, those in jail and prison, and those who are on the wrong path; that they can enjoy life instead of being locked up.
