Editorial Reviews

Review

"Mario Marazziti's book is a deeply moving and cogently argued account of why an abominable practice, the death penalty, should be abolished. It dehumanises those who use it. Its mistakes cannot be corrected."—Desmond Tutu

"You WANT to read 13 Ways of Looking at the Death Penalty! Not only for its superb, well-crafted content, but because of its unique, colorful (very), amazing mover-&-shaker of an author, Mario Marazziti, whose friend I am proud to be. On the global scene no one has worked closer with me to abolish the death penalty than this man. These words are forged in fire!"—Sister Helen Prejean, author of Dead Man Walking

"Mario Marazziti is an intensely humane, companionable man who may know more about the death penalty than anyone else on this planet. In 13 Ways of Looking at the Death Penalty he delivers his knowledge with such clarity and charity that he takes the reader by surprise. This is a riveting and even, where appropriate, an entertaining book."—Thomas Cahill, author of How the Irish Saved Civilization and A Saint on Death Row

This is a brilliant book. It guides you through the process of thinking about capital punishment, bringing in a lot of information together with the moral and ethic considerations that every person should do when considering their own personal perception of something so grave as capital punishment. It describes feelings of both parties, sentenced and family of victims, in a narrative that is easy to read but at the same time very intense.
I strongly recommend for everyone to read it, especially younger generations who are thinking in their own position towards capital punishment.

This is a good book, well written. But the name implies that it would be unbiased. I did not realise it was entirely on the abolition side. I would still recommend this book, it would be a good read to anyone against the death penalty. Just be aware if you are looking for an impartial view, that this is a very biased book.
