Book Full of Apology--When None Was Needed
on June 6, 2014
Back in March of 2013, while I was recuperating from a mastectomy and preparing to start chemotherapy for breast cancer, I got hooked on watching "Dog the Bounty Hunter" on A&E. And now, every weekday morning, from 6-8 AM, my family knows that that's what will be on my television.
I was looking something up about the Chapman family this past April 2014, and discovered that Dog himself had written two books, and that Lyssa Chapman had written a book about herself, so I set out to buy and read all three. I knew what I was getting into, and knew that they wouldn't be literary masterpieces. They were exactly what I expected and wanted....insights into this very public, very real family.
This book was written as an apology to the public after his estranged son recorded him saying the "N" word while discussing the son's horrible girlfriend. In my opinion, the whole thing was blown completely out of proportion, and the man's actions should speak so much louder than that one word, which, if I read the entire transcript of his conversation with his son correctly, was not even used in anger towards the girlfriend. Many, many other choice words come to my mind to describe her, but I digress.
I enjoyed both books by the Dog, and by Lyssa and would recommend them to anybody else that has enjoyed watching either of his shows and has followed his family's work all these years.
