Not just a good story but a good point well made
Would you consider the audio edition of Good Cop, Bad War to be better than the print version?
I've not read the print version so can't compare
What did you like best about this story?
It's a true story and is good in its own right, but it's the truth - the war on drugs is so counterproductive its bleeding obvious to anyone who thinks about it. This is someone who is extremely knowledgeable about his subject and his conclusions are based on practical reality as well as common sense.
Which scene did you most enjoy?
The best scenes are the ones where he's a virtual derelict and facing serious violence. Not enjoyable because he's in that state but because I was really impressed with his dedication. Also the scenes where he proves the jobsworth clipboard coppers how badly wrong they are
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
There were one or two amusing moments, I won't spoil them for you
Any additional comments?
I was riveted to this book. It's depressing that ever more violent criminals are getting ever more powerful thanks to the phony War on Drugs but it's cause for some optimism that at least someone with relevant experience is talking sense. I'd rather my kids brought up in a society run by this guy than with those currently in charge of drug laws. Neil, keep up the good work :)
