In 1987, Michael Morton was sentenced to life in prison for murdering his wife – a crime he didn’t commit. He served 25 years before having his conviction overturned. Monday on Think, he told Krys Boyd that for many of those years, his life was ruled by resentment and thoughts of revenge.

Michael Morton’s new book is called Getting Life: An Innocent Man’s 25-Year Journey from Prison to Peace. He’ll sign copies of it Tuesday night at 7 at the Barnes & Noble on Northwest Highway in Dallas. Be sure to listen to the entire interview from Monday's show.
