Another thing is the author early in the book apparently kills two Federales for the crime of trying to stop his pot smuggling by shooting at him. YMMV on what you think of that. This is NOT a cuddly never hurt a fly weed running hippie.
EDIT - finished it. 2 stars now, much of it for the whining tone about how coke really never hurt anyone, the Clintons and Bushes are all in on it, the cops do coke, the judges do coke, why am I in jail, the Medellin cartel wasn't so bad, etc.. etc..
Some other frustrations. The author seems to get robbed a LOT. He was endlessly getting ripped off or having drug deals go bad. He takes a boat about 3/4s of the way around the entire world to smuggle coke to Australia and the plan at the end was maybe sketched out on a napkin in 5 seconds. No matter - if it succeeded he somehow wouldn't get paid anyway. If he would have stuck with his original plan investing in California real estate he would have retired a legal millionaire.
He tells a story that had me laughing, on the verge of tears at times and I could not put the book down. He has seen the world in the most beautiful places and if you buy this book you won't be able to help but feel a genuine affection for this man because they broke the mold with him. He speaks the truth about Bushes, Clintons, Oliver North he tells no lies and exaggerates nothing for sensationalism because he is still at heart a country boy with good judge of souls, honest and full of integrity whether or not anyone agrees with one of the professions he chose he always kept his integrity and lived to tell about it.
last few chapters become rather philosophically remarking about the evils or drug dealing compared to other crimes and corruption. A lot of similar incidents explained in great detail seems to make the book too long.
He became a smuggler because its easy money and his wife loved the money and lifestyle as well. Do your time like a man and stop with the rationalizing and whining already.
