Item description for Wanted: 2nd Edition by Richard Coss...

In this riveting autobiography, the author, the son of alcoholic parents, reveals that he committed his first crime at the age of nine. At eleven years of age, he stabbed a student at school, and by the time he was twenty-five years old, Richard David Coss had served almost nine years behind bars. He had accumulated thirty-two arrests, twenty-eight convictions, and a reputation with the FBI as a "dangerous and incorrigible" criminal.

Bored with the monotony of cell life and looking for a diversion, Coss wandered into a meeting of Christian businessmen and fellow inmates at the prison chapel. One of the men introduced himself and sat with Coss. Before Coss knew it, his anger and hatred had become irrelevant. What counselors, psychologists, sociologists, correction officers, special schools, threats, and prison had been unable to do in sixteen years was accomplished in a mere fifteen minutes. After an awakening desire to change, Coss faced his situation, discovered hope, and transformed his life. While still in prison, his influence resulted in changing the lives of other inmates. He was released in 1971.

In the years that followed, he experienced his share of gains and losses, yet no loss was as severe as that suffered on April 19, 1995-the day of the Oklahoma City bombing. Coss, a grandfather at the time, described that day as "the worst day of my life." Yet he and his remaining family survived with the support of each other and the strength of their faith.

Reviews - What do customers think about Wanted: 2nd Edition?

Wanted  Jul 18, 2007
Richard David Coss' future didn't look very bright. He had spent years in and out (more in than out) of juvenile facilities and correctional institutions. Each time he got caught for something, he went to jail, met up with friends, learned a few new tricks, and then went back out into society to break the law again. It seemed that even if Richard had wanted to change (which he didn't at the time) he was far too deep into his self destructive cycle of drugs, drinking, and gaining an ever expanding rap sheet.

Then, when everything seemed the bleakest, Richard David Coss' life did change. Like many in prison, Richard found God (or realized that God was right there for him all the time). However, unlike many of those individuals, Richard actually succeeded in turning his life around so that he could bring hope to those that are lost like he had once been.

Wanted is an inspiring story about change. An example of real change that will inspire and give hope to those individuals who don't realize that someone cares about them.
