A very interesting man, but a long drawn out book. Just had too many details for me, but most was interesting. I dont know how he found time for bounty hunting, between having kids and getting married! A colorful past that lead to a bright future.

This book was...interesting. Prior to reading it, I was neither a fan nor not a fan of Dog. I'd seen his show a few times, knew a little bit about him and his story, and thought this would be an interesting book to read since he seems like an interesting character. Well, one thing I can say is that after reading this book, I am definitely leaning towards "not a fan". He is very arrogant and full of himself, and I can't respect someone who has repeatedly been unfaithful to the women in his life with little remorse. His pre-bounty hunting days are glorified tales of sex, drugs and criminal activity. His bounty hunting tales are full of arrogance and self-importance. And to be honest - I had trouble believing a lot of the stories in this book. Overall, I think if you like Dog and his TV show, you will probably enjoy this book. If you are not a fan, or not sure how you feel about him, I'd pass.

After reading this book I wonder how A & E didn't see his problems coming...especialy since A & E sponsored this book..did they even read it!?!?!?!?

I finally had to stop reading it at the point where Dog meets Beth because this book is full of sex, sex, and more sex, drugs, and a lot of language. It makes your respect for the man drop a bit because he was even stating how he knew it was wrong to sleep with the hooker but he just wanted it bad enough he'd do anything to get it. This book just really grossed me out and made me lose a bit of respect for Dog. I have to wonder now about a comment he made on his show before he married Beth. He said that once he got married he'd have to stop sleeping around with people to get information on his bounty's. I thought back then that he was joking, but after reading this book I'm not so sure anymore. Just sad really to find all this out. I knew he did bad things, but it's like he never got out of the habit/pattern and almost like he didn't want to.

I watch Dog The Bounty Hunter all the time-now the book.......Hmmmm, er..umm...Dog..Dude..one word COUNSELING. Wow. Dog says he walks with God and I gotta say I'll have what you're having. Drugs, sex, fghting, sex, drinking, child endangerment, law-breaking, talking to angels, oh, and did I mention sex? A very interesting read and I can appreciate someone who tells the truth. I liked the story but am shocked over the blatant law-breaking. I'm not impressed with the sex/drinking/binges; I'm glad someone is there to bounty hunt, but it seems to take its toll with hard living. I do reccommend this book. I couldn't put it down.

This book contains never before seen pictures of "The Dog", and gets really personal with the readers, if you want a clear "idea" of what "DOG" was, became, and is here is the book for you--it tells you EVERYTHING....and then some.

very good book is honest, but if your offended by such words as f#%k and others then beware. After reading it though it made me thankful for my wife and boys.

I really liked this story. Easy to follow and explained away many false stories about his life. It explains why he is harsh with the bail jumpers, but also tries to give them a brake. The last thing this gentleman needed was is television show to be canceled.

Love this book, Dog is an inspiration because he doesn't try to be anything he's not. The world needs more people like the Dog. The book was easy to read and interesting. It's worth every penny.

As a big fan of Dog. I thought this book was a very good look into his life. He's had it extremely rough, and doing what he is now. Is a blessing. It's taken me awhile to get to the whole book read (13 days).
This is a man who completetly turned his life around and I am proud to say as a fan, that he's done a hell of a job doing it. I would recommend this book to anyone.
