    A great read, from a boy capable of being able to go either way, to being a great cop and eventiually a great leader. This was a great read!

    This book is worth reading. Despite Kerik's later problems it shows how he rose through the ranks of Law Enforcement and what he accomplished. The only downside of the book is knowing that he later turned out to be less than a shining example of a LEO.

    This book is really excellent, well worth reading. His life was filled with pain yet he rose far above it, and achieved success. This book also brought tears to my eyes.

    Very interesting book. I read it in just a couple of days. This guy has had a very interesting life. Plus he was a K9 handler!

    Got this book when it first came out and could not put it down. Bernard has run into trouble since but the book remains a great read.

    This was a good book in the life and times of Bernard Kerik. I think that it was a shame that he was not able to be selected as the DHS Secretary. The war on Domestic Terrorism would have been a much different if he had been.
