Format: Hardcover
I was really looking forward to reading this, and I'd certainly recommend it. It does paint a darker side than the TV show portrays, and it's clear that Dog had (and still does have) his demons to fight.

I was amazed by his honesty. He reveals stuff about his life which must be painful, and doesn't always paint him in the way he might like to be portrayed. The information about Baby Lyssa knocked me for six, and how Dog maintains his faith with all the adversity he has faced is a testament to his strength and an inspiration to others.

My only niggle is that the book is confused in places. Some of that could be due to Dog's drug hazed recollections, but in chapter 33 (aprox 1999) it talks about meeting Tim (Youngblood) - that's only 8 years ago, and Dog has hunted with Tim for over 20 years so it is just plain wrong! - That should have been picked up by someone, and there are several other examples which can make the book confusing in places.

Like the previous reviewer, I'd like to have read more about current bounties and the other team members. Leyland, Tim & Duane Lee got less mention than Tony Robbins which is a shame for such key members of Dog's success (perhaps that's for a future book?!)

All in all it is well worth reading and a rollercoaster ride of emotions.

Got this in the States early in August, makes interesting reading, definitely paints a less prettier picture than the TV series, you knew from the TV that he had a darker past and this book proves it. Would have been nice if it had said more about his bounty hunting now

I am a huge fan of Dog the Bounty Hunter and when i saw the book on one of the episodes i was immediately on amazon buying the book. Once i started reading it i was immediately hooked. It shows perfectly how Dog became a gangster, how his life in prision was, and how he changed his life for the better even though he was constantly screwed over. If your a fan of the programme, this is a must read!

Seeing as I am a huge fan of Dog the Bounty Hunter show and Dog himself I was really looking forward to reading his book, and I was not disappointed. I found the book to be very entertaining and true to what you see of Dog. Definitely recommend to read this book as you get a real insight into Dog's life journey and some very interesting facts about him.

I received this book for Christmas and from opening the front cover I was unable to put it down. I always say that if a book can make you laugh and cry then it's a good book and that's just what this book did. I never realised just how much he had struggled in his life but the book opened my eyes up to what he'd been through and how he'd come out the other side. It left me feeling like I knew him a little better and that if he's able to overcome all the hurdles and abuse he has had thrown at him throughout his life then any one can as long as they have a little faith. Can't wait to start the next book, Where Mercy is shown Mercy is given.

I have only just started watching Dog the Bounty Hunter and love it so couldn't wait to start reading this book. Not the greatest autobiography type book i have read, for example it seemed to go into great detail about his early life but skimmed over all the recent stuff. Either way it was an interesting read, i couldn't put it down and is definatly a must for any fan.

I loved this book, im a big fan of the show, and bought this last week, it was delivered in 3 days! Anyway, Dog's story is a definite heart warmer. The chapter on the hunt on Luster, the max factor heir, was gripping and had me on the edge of my lazyee boy! Highly recommended to all you dog the bounty hunter fans!

Not a bad book about an interesting guy.

You have seen 'Dog' on the TV and you get the picture that he's the good guy who makes his money by catching the bad guy and getting his ass back to jail where they belong.

At the beginning of each 'hunt' you will watch Dog and his family of bail bondsmen and women join hands and pray, they then go on with the catch of their bond throughout the show and at the end they bang them in the back of their pick up, offer them a cigarette, show some compassion and preach them a little bit- "You can get back on track now buddy".

Reading Duanes book puts a story behind the TV show and explains how the 'Dog' came to be.

It sheds light on his slightly chequered past, run ins with the law and how he found his religion.

It's quite an interesting read and is simple enough to follow. A good quick read for any fans of the show.
