    One thought on “Where Mercy Is Shown, Mercy Is Given”

    1. I really liked this book! Duane "Dog" Chapman is an author with a voice, and for me, that makes the story!It was interesting to read how Dog uses the Lord in all he does. He constantly sees the presence of the Lord in his world, and makes sure everybody (and I mean EVERYBODY!) sees or hears of it too. When he captures the fugitives, he says in the book: "It's just me and God in the backseat". For those people who have seen his show, it's totally true. He speaks from his heart, and truly believes [...]

    2. Okay, so I didn't like his first book. Why'd I read this one? Darned if I know. Masochism? A desire to laugh at him further? Or maybe I have some kind of thing for guys named Duane, traceable to my love affair with Larry McMurtry's Last Picture Show series.I call this the Mopping Up the Mess book, and in my own opinion, it didn't mop all that good.Dog, do you really expect me to believe that you are so chummy with black folks that you had no idea that a non-black person calling a black person th [...]

    3. Considered to be the world’s best bounty hunter (and I happen to agree), Duane “Dog” Chapman lays out in this book his ways of catching fugitives, the mistakes he’s made in his life, his capture of Andrew Lustre in Mexico then finding himself in jail over it. I believe that incident took a huge toll on Dog and one he’ll never forget. I think it was terribly unfair that he was not awarded the $300,000 dollars for Lustre’s capture.Dog is a deeply spiritual man who loves God, Beth and t [...]

    4. Beth and Dog Chapman are sometimes a "horrible fascination". They've been bad, and now they are trying to help others stay out of trouble. Dog goes from hothead to humble to not being able to tear himself away from his own image. "I am the Dog." While I may not admire some of his antics, tactics and language, a job like this really needs a man like Dog. It is hard not to like him. One side of Dog is seen as a tough "don't mess with me" attitude, the other side is a vulnerable and soft. He also s [...]

    5. Dog is a character. No doubt about it. The character that he is in this book is a lot like the character he is in his television show. But here, we also see the Dog explaining himself – why he got in trouble in Mexico, why he used a racial epithet to describe one son’s girlfriend that he believed described himself , how quite a few of his many children have (or had) issues, why he forgot to pay his taxes for years, and on. The Mexico story and the racial slur that lost him his show really dr [...]

    6. My grandparents gave me this book after they read it. I gave it a 3 mainly because they enjoyed it, but I did not. Dog comes across as cocky to me and he makes too many excuses for his actions. I'm 23, so I might not connect with his old school thinking much. The N word is not justified by being part Native American (what a joke). I am not convinced of his talks with God and God saying to him everytime ''Dog'' this is what you need to do. God does not always speak like a Morgan Freeman narration [...]

    7. I'm a huge of Dog the Bounter Hunter. I love the show, and I read his first book, "You Can Run But You Can't Hide". I love how strong Dog's faith is and how he incorporates not just in his personal life, but his professonal life as well. While You Can Run dealt with Dog's birth and early life, crazy motorcyle gang days, prison and then bounty hunting, this book was more about the mercy shown to him after his drug addict son, Tucker, recorded him saying the N word. Dog's angry rant cost him his T [...]

    9. The main focus of this book is the trouble that Dog got himself into when he used the n word in a recored conversation with one of his sons, which was sold to the media and caused a storm. He talks about his use of the word, his problems with his son and how he felt that the boy's girlfriend was a very bad influence on him and wanted them split up.The problem with this book is how repetitive it is. We go over the n word scandal several times, we go back to the main events that happened in the fi [...]

    10. Dog the Bounty Hunter's TV show started out as my guilty pleasure, and then I ended up falling in love with the show, because despite anything else, the Chapmans are truly a close-knit bunch and that shines through in Dog's second book, which picks up where his first book left off. We cover the second half of the Mexican saga, his n-word debacle, as well as early bounty hunting stories and reflections on his family, especially his children. Like Olivia Munn's books, if you like Dog, you'll be in [...]

    11. His life is so different than anybody else's it's really cool to read about. His family is cool too. What he does for a living is amazing I think it would be amazing to have that job, but it would be a job I would suck at so it's not for me. It's nice to see how his image was ruined he was able to save it, and that other people who he thought he offended weren't really offended. There were so many lessons in this book and they probably will help me someday and that makes me happy to know. His sh [...]

    12. 4 stars/Non-Fiction; BiographyI adore "Dog" Chapman and his honesty. As much as he tries to be seen as a tough guy on the outside, he is equally soft and tender on the inside.He knows he has messed up in life and he is not afraid to admit it. In this book he becomes 'real' to those who have followed his TV show and have become a fan. He has a strong faith in God and believes in the goodness of people. A one man army trying to right his wrongs and live the best way he can.I have more of an apprec [...]

    13. I guess you could sum it up as 'dysfunctional and dramatic'. This guy's life was made for TV - a very fascinating man who has done a lot of particularly crazy stuff and lived life on his terms. The bible bashing was a little grating.

    14. "Dog" tries to justify his past, while maintaining what a good person he is. He messed up his own life and those of his kids from his first marriaget he has always tried to help others??? WTF?

    15. Dog, the bounty hunter has no problem patting himself on the back. His determination is bigger than his impulsiveness. He shows himself to be kindhearted. He might not always make the best decisions but he makes an interesting person to read about.

    16. Really challenging live he has had. He has turned his life around he has helped many people to stop drugs and criminal activity

    17. Good booKA pretty good book.I recently discovered reruns of Dog The Bounty Hunter on A/E and I love the show so I had to read this.

    18. It is rare that I read a book that is dedicated to me. Thanks Dog. The reason that this book is dedicated to me is because it is dedicated to anyone that Duane "Dog" Chapman has ever offended with his mouth. That's me!I'm split over my opinion of Duane Chapman, but this book helped me understand some stuff in a new light.First, I am thrilled by the fact that "Dog" truly cares about the fugitives he apprehends. I am delighted whenever I've seen him on T.V. with a captured bad guy in the back of h [...]

    19. First, my Dad says Dog looks like a cartoon character. As much as I like him, I find this very funny.Second, I have a strange, unexplainable crush on Leland.Third, I'd have killed to get that bang wave he has going back in the late 80's, early 90's. Does anyone know how hard that was to achieve?!About the book though - Dog isn't just a good bounty hunter, he's also a good writer. It's obvious he speaks from the heart and that goes a long way with a book of this sort.He not only tells of his life [...]

    20. 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 [...]

    21. I use to be a huge Dog fan. I read his first book in 2 days. This one took me longer to read.I feel that since his show is so successful now that he's got a huge ego. I don't know how many times in this book he's said he's the best bounty hunter ever. A lot of the book talked about the aftermath of his using the N word in a taped conversation with Tucker. While I believe Tucker was wrong to tape the private conversation and sell it.Dog has a lot of excuses for why he felt he had the right to use [...]

    22. Instead of focusing on his upbringing and how he got into bounty hunting, etc which was the focus of Dog's first book, this one describes how things have changed in his life since his TV show began. It was interesting to see the way his TV show and fame have impacted his life, and I think he came across as sympathetic but also a little cocky (not necessarily a bad thing, considering that I doubt he'd be as good at his job if he lacked confidence). A lot of the content was inspirational, with Dog [...]

    23. R-2 The second book of Duane (Dog) Chapman "When mercy is shown, Mercy is given" was amazing! This is the story of Duane Dog Chapman about his life, The struggles in his life, How he and his family are close to the Lord, about his life of being a criminal and trying his hardest to come to where he is now and how he try's to bring the fugitives he catches and try's to bring to justice.The feel is sad to read that he has gone through all his struggles one of my favorite quotes from this book is in [...]

    24. As a longtime fan of A&E's "Dog the Bounty Hunter" starring Duane "Dog" Chapman and his family, this was an excellent look into Dog's life behind the camera. He tells stories from his troubled youth and subsequent stint in prison, his run-in with Mexican authorities when capturing Andrew Luster, and talks at length about his experiences making the hit A&E show. One of the things that really surprised me was his frank discussion of the controversial phone call where he repeatedly used the [...]

    25. This book's writing was MUCH better than the last book. I was disappointed and thought the title was a bit misleading, but maybe I just misinterpreted it. I was hoping for more on his "find 'em and fix 'em" philosophy, not him talking about the mistakes he made, justification for those mistakes, and his attempts to fix them. Really, the amount of chapters dedicated to his n word scandal and arrest for capturing Luster got old. Overall, it was an easy read (I finished in two hours), but I think I [...]
