"Growing up in an impoverished, broken home, unable to make friends, Waln Brown turned to vagrancy, truancy, and juvenile delinquency. In this moving and spellbinding autobiography, Waln Brown recounts his journey through various county and state agencies, psychiatric hospitals, and reformatories. Surprisingly, he was able to make his reformatory experiences work to his advantage. Slowly fighting his way out of delinquency, he returned to school, earned a Ph.D. and moved to a more acceptable life-Style.""What is unique about this book is Brown's recounting of the story from multiple points of view. He recollects with emotion how he was a victim of an unstable home life and rigid school system. But he also presents the contrasting official records - court transcripts, psychiatrists' reports, hospital files - proving Brown to be uncooperative and violent. The juxtaposition of these two views illustrates the delinquent's and reformers' frustrations and inability to communicate. Brown's gripping story of a juvenile delinquent's world will hold you to the end. His analysis paves the way for improved juvenile justice programs."

This book was a very careful and insightful study of a "once upon a time juvenile delinquent." It's important for all to read. People are quick to label troubled youth and equally so quick to complain of their tax dollars being spent on some of these youth who sadly move on to prison. An examination of Dr. Waln Brown's experience is a perfect example of why a delinquent youth deserves a chance to have his/her mental and physical improvement invested in heavily. I enjoyed reading actual court documents and assessments that Dr. Brown was able to obtain from his youth. It made his study of himself more intriguing to learn about. Had he not been able to provide us with the transcripts that accompanied this story, it's safe to say that many youth would not be liberated. This makes it personal for troubled youth who are looking for an example to draw strength from. This book will be a timesless resource for a continued discovery of youth who can and will become successful and structured members of society.

What became of the kid who couldn’t fit in, the oddball, the “popular group” reject who scared people with his aggression, rebellion and unfocused “otherness”? Waln Brown was that kid.
Adolescents are cruel and conformist; some taunted and mocked Waln for his virulent acne, relative poverty, lack of social skills and poor academic performance, some saw him as a risk-free target for their own aggression, others egged him on to act out their own stifled angst. Waln would take any dare, respond to any challenge, and break any rule, so let’s have some fun! Beats studying!
But most sensible kids just stayed away from Waln, which worsened his crushing isolation and compounded the parental abandonment at the root of his problems. Had he been whole enough to excel scholastically, he might have found a healthy outlet for his immense drive and intellect, for his IQ was in the superior range.
But schooling never reached him, and his dysfunctional home life sent him careening onto the streets — fight and flight were the order of his day, and he found validation and acceptance from a sketchy crowd of proto-criminals and malcontents. This square peg was headed for big trouble in a hormone-fueled hurry, and the prognosis was dismal. The jails are filled with grown-up kids like Waln. Perhaps you know some headed that way . . .
This book is a memoir of Waln's chaotic early teen years, written while his recollections of the 1950s and early 1960s were still fresh, and updated from the vantage point of maturity. Fleshed out with extensive excerpts from court, school and institutional records, the book strikes the reader head on with the reality of teenage life. Most concerning is how mental-health professionals strived to place Waln in a diagnostic box, and how successive confirmation bias presaged an unseemly end. “Schizophrenic” was a much-feared diagnosis at the time, leading to extreme therapies like electro- and insulin-shock, crude drug regimes, lobotomy, and the threat of permanent incarceration in the horrid asylums of the day. That diagnostic box contains the relics of many once-promising lives.
It took three concerned, compassionate and persistent adults to advocate for him and let the light of his basic goodness and value shine through the fog of pain and rage that had enveloped him. Exposure to a structured, institutional life helped set Waln on the path to an Ivy League PhD and international recognition for his advocacy and insightful writings on family dysfunction, juvenile delinquency and foster care. Waln knows how close he came to a wasted life — many of his contemporaries did. From the other side of his personal chasm, Waln undertook a life mission of helping patch societal cracks. His goal — that no more square pegs are hammered to pieces by a round-hole system — will probably never be realized, but Waln has never given up on that quest.
As a personal testament, his tale is inspiring. As a raw look at how things were for a youthful misfit at the end of the repressive and ultra-conformist 1950s, this book will give law enforcement, scholastic and mental-health professionals pause, and perhaps prompt them to take a second look at the troublesome black-sheep boy. For parents, one hopes it will provide incentive to do better for their kids. Our future depends on that.

Having known Waln during those high school years, I was shocked to learn about his troubles back then and to see how he was able to overcome all his obstacles!! I knew even back then that he was actually a very nice but shy guy, but he never acted out around me so I was never able to see for myself what is described in this book. Once I started reading I couldn't put it down - I kept wanting to know "What happened next"? Waln, I'm so very proud of you! You've shown the world that "It CAN end in success'!!!

This was an intense (almost searing) account of a young man's struggles to adapt to his early life environment. But, it is told from the perspective of someone who has "come out the other end." As such, it offers deep insights that would be valuable for all professionals dealing with this issue. In addition, Brown's focus at the end on why he overcame his delinquencies (i.e. the "other side of delinquency"), rather than just the more direct question of why the delinquencies developed in the first place, reflects a clinical (yet still very personal) perspective of someone who has become a "go to" professional in the field.

A Juvenile Justice Classic

This story rings as true today as it did when I first read it. Every juvenile probation officer in America should read it to learn how a fellow P.O. saved the author from self-destruction. The author has had an amazing life: From reform school to an Ivy League PhD.

The author did, indeed, have a truly dysfunctional childhood. How he overcame his problems and the many people who helped him turn his life around is seen not only through his eyes, but from official records as well. That's what elevates this book about juvenile delinquency above the rest of the juvenile justice literature.

I have known Wally for over 50 years. While I knew about his youth and problems it was mostly heresay. We did a lot together during those years including the "BBA", Brown's Bad Asses. It was great to read the actual accounts instead of the rumors. Wally was always the toughest kid around but at the same time nice, gentle and kind. Great book and insight.
Waln Brown's personal experience as a troubled youth in the early 1960s in Pennsylvania reads like an episode of Happy Days that turned into One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. It sparked my interest into George Junior Republic's work with with At-Risk youth, and transports you back to tougher times with his own personal and powerful account.
