The Soul of a Cop

I thought this book is a action packed book. I saw what a cop working in the ACU (Anti Crime Unit) really does. It is a totally true story about a man named Paul Ragonese working on the streets in New York City. He is a American hero, Saves many People and to some is a role model. I may only be Ten years old, But I can feel evey bullet, fist and weapon that is said. I recamend this book for retired cop and cop in the job. Also to Teen-Agers who love those volient video games such as Grand Theft Auto. Who needs Medal of Honer or James Bond when you have this Book? Nobody!

great story

this is the best book i have ever read. the story of PAUL RAGONESES life as a cop in new york is astonding. the thing he did just because he was a cop were unbeleiveable, true sacrifices. if all police officers were more like him this world would be a much better place. he is one of my heros. i strongly recomened this book to any one.

One of the best "Cop" books I ever read.

If you ever wondered what it would be like to be in law enforcement this is the book for you. This is the autobiography of Paul Ragonese one of the most decorated cops in America. As a New York City Police officer, and later detective, he won the medal of valor five times and in 1986 was nominated "Cop of the Year". You may remember him as the host of the television show "Crimestoppers".This books show you the highs an lows of being a police officer in the big apple. Once you strat reading you will not want to put the book down. When I finished it I wanted even more.

Exhilirating, I couldn't put it down..

I loved this book. I have always been interested in police work, and this book brought it all to life right in front of my eyes. P. Ragonese was a fine Officer, and all of his duties deserved to be put in such a manner, Thank you Paul for giving us a close-up look of the real world..
