I watch Dog the Bonty hunter on A&E and I like his show. This book should be good for everyone.

We watch The Bounty Hunter on TV, so we were not surprised by much in this book. It seems to run true to the personaluty of the characters we see in action. At first, I did not like Duane as he discloses his sexual biker stories, but reality is exposed throughout this book. The book and the reality show are consistent. I hope Dog, Beth, and the others depicted are as religious as portrayed. If so, this book could be inspriational. Easy to read.

I loved this book, I have always wondered what gave dog the ambition to get into bounty hunting. Very interesting story about his life and the circumstances that led him into bounty hunting. The book also tells about his family, how many kids he has and also how him and Beth got together. And wow what a life he has led so far!!

Duane "Dog" Chapman tells the interesting story of his life in this book. He tells of his hard childhood and teen years up to his false charges that send him to prison. I enjoyed the book and it was amazing to hear how he turned his life around and leaned on God through it all. I don't recommend this book be read by young children.

I have allways been a dog fan since the first time I watched his show,he has shown that you can make mistakes pick up your life and start over again. I want and e to bring his show back. I know him making the racial remark was wrong but if you go out in public you will hear people saing that word to each other aLL THE TIME long live the dog and good luck in the future.I would like to see beth write a book too

If it wasn't for him or the book or other things. I have no clue where I would be know. I was most def on the wrong path. I'm still working on it. But I pretty much figured everything about him off of his t.v. show. But I loved reading his book. His intenst times,hard time,and most def his change in his life. If he can change his live so can every one else. This has made me relize that the biggest and tuffest looking people are sometimes the softest people. Do not judge people by how big their muscle are's :). Not only have learned from him,but I also learned alot things off a t.v. shows like that. I really want to pursue career in criminal justice, but I haven't chosen one. But I want to read his next book, where mercy is shown, mercy is given. I'm 17. I've done alot of things,and seen. But I have learned a lot from him,and other shows. I didn't get this book off of here. But I'm glad I got it.

What can happen to someone that has a goal and strives to achieve, even though there were pitfalls that he caused by the way he lived his early life. I think that this is a book that sould be required for yound readers who are a threat to follow this type of path.

Duane "Dog" Chapman is one hell of a man. Seriously. He's been to hell and back -- and more than once. From a prison cell for murder to drug addiction to the theft of his business and then the threat of more prison time (this time for something totally unjust that happened in Mexico), this is a guy who learned that he had a destiny... and refused to let anyone steal it from him. Beyond this, I can't let myself ruin this book for you.

In my lifetime (and as a writer), I've read hundreds of books, and only a select few have left such a profound mark on me. There's so much junk out there in print. This book -- this living testimony -- is actually worth your time, and you do yourself a disservice if you blow it off. You can't possibly be the same after reading it. It's not only an eye-opener -- it's a soul-opener.

I will say this: The Dog is that perfect example of where perseverence and faith will lead you, once you grab hold of them. He is a real example of how our Creator intended us to be -- loving stewards to the unlovable. He is honest, real, and not afraid to be human. This backward, wretched world needs more men like the Dog.

I read this book in 2 days! It was great! I too thought I knew this man, I knew nothing until I read his story. What a complete turn around he made in his life. This book is candid & honest. I found his faith inspiring to me. This book really spoke to me. He & Beth both struggled but they changed their lives. I like it when he says 'we are second chance people.' Everyone deserves one-look how this man made the most of his. I also liked how he is unafraid to talk about his faith. God bless the Chapman family.

I couldn't put this book down. It only took me 2 days to read it. Being in a l2 step program myself, I admire Dog's honesty and determination to do whatever it takes to walk the right path of life. I love the TV show and the book verifies everything he says and does is true.

I didn't know anything about Duane 'Dog' Chapman before I read this book--I just thought it looked interesting, and boy, was it ever! I couldn't put it down, and finished it in two nights! I felt inspired by how he changed his life around for the better, and truly believe in his cause! I highly recommend it!

I have to admit I was a little skeptical of reading a book by Dog the Bounty Hunter. However, I took a chance and it exceeded my expectations. Dog's book was extremely honest without being over the top. Dog has made many mistakes in his life, but his journey back to the right side of the law despite an abusive father, gang affiliations, drug use, a murder conviction, and a host of other tradgedies and injustices while still clinging to his faith was a story I could not turn away from. If you watch his TV show, Dog doesn't always look like the sharpest tool in the shed, but after reading his book, I can tell he poured his heart and his soul into every page. The book is about 320 pages long, but the short chapters help keep things moving along. I finished this book in a week, but if life hadn't gotten in the way, I probably could have finished it in a day. I was very impressed and recommend this book to anyone. It's a definite 'must read'.

I admit that I'm a fan of the Dog. Dog the Bounty Hunter is on my viewing schedule every week. Because of this I already knew a lot about Duane Lee Chapman, and the rest of the Chapman family, and I didn't think this book could tell me anything new. I was so wrong. Mr. Chapman is as honest in the book as I've gotten use to seeing on his show. He has a moral code that (at first) surprises his viewers, and his book from beginning to end tells the reader how his hard start in life built his need for the moral right, and why he's not afraid to push others to see his view. 'Push' isn't the right word, 'convince with passion' is better. Dog has the strength to be and do the things he finds to be right, to catch those who are hurting others, but then he has the ability to talk them into trying to find some spark of that strength within themselves. You Can Run But You Can't Hide isn't an ad for the TV show, instead its a lesson in life, one that you don't have to experience the hurt and pitfalls first hand, but you can see how one man overcame abuse, drugs, gangland life, and prison. Duane Lee Chapman is telling every man, woman, and, especially, child that their lives mean something to someone. Reviewed by Wanda C. Keesey

This is one of the best non fictional books I have ever read. Duane 'Dog' Chapman is an inspiration to anyone who wants to turn their life around. When I finished his book I felt like I knew him and his lovely family on a personal level. He is a hero and the world's greatest bounty hunter! God Bless him and his cause.

Just finished "You can Run, but You Can't Hide" and "Where Mercy is Shown, Mercy is Given". Both books on the life of Duane "Dog" Chapman. For those unfamiliar, Dog is a bounty hunter, with bases in Denver and Hawaii. He also has a reality TV show where the cameras follow his "family" on the "hunt". A & E carried the first six seasons and now CMT has picked them up. Both books were fantastic, rather you have seen the shows or not. Really made me appreciate his life and what he does for a living. He and his wife are catalysts in pushing for regulation for the industry, which I believe it needs. Great books!

Not sure if this book is for everyone. Dog's colorful past was hard to read at times. I am surprised at how many times he was at the bottom of the barrel on drugs that he managed to pull himself out. Not sure of his liberal interpretation of God, and certaintly he is blessed with a wisdom higher than his. Confused as heck about the trip to Mexico and the charges. You would have thought going international to get a giy you would have all i-s dotted and t-s crossed. Do not follow the political interest with Dog on this at all. Colorful reading for sure.

He has a heart and a desire to be a decent person. Maybe a little to late for some of his children.
