I read this book for a book report and found it shocking and compelling. I loved how Eric narrated this book. It was amazing and comprehensive and it is for anyone interested in pursuing criminal justice as a career. This would be a great tool for college students in the criminal justice field, as well as people already working in law enforcement. This would be a book for upper grade high schoolers, and possibly even some mature lower grade high schoolers and junior high folks, to see if a professional in criminal justice and law enforcement would be one for them. This is a great text for college students as well.
I got it as a gift from my Uncle who is a police officer. ^^
