The title is meant to be taken literally. The book is comprised of 400 short, two sentance things about being a cop. I would have preferred 100 of the best tips with four times the information and backstory, but its neither here nor there. Thanks

Good

I was recommended this book by a friend of mine, solid read but just wasn't that exceptional to me. I've read more engaging economics books about less interesting topics.

Cool book But..

Great book and well researched, I got onto Cat Warren from reading an article more recently. I really enjoyed her writing about some of the cases she worked on and even talking about the cool ways they train and work the dogs in practice. But.. the book is really long and there was plenty of material that may be great for some people but just wasn't for me.

I went out looking for a book like this, some true to life stories from a cop - maybe an autobiography of sorts. This book is exactly that, a sort of highlight reel of John DiMaggio's three decade career as a beat cop, body guard, detective and detective sergeant. Some of it is pretty ugly, John didn't agree with the "old timers" cops in the 60's who were still beating up prisoners and suspects to get information, or extorting people for money, or being racist or being unbelievably lazy while they were on duty. Those stories aren't pretty. There is an entire chapter or so about the Chicago rioting after Martin Luther King was assassinated, and its one of the best of the entire book. The rest is a collection of quite a few cases that John worked on as a detective and the strange and surprising twists and turns they took. One involved mysterious tapes being dropped off of men talking about committing robberies and killing cops. Another involved the brutal murder of a politicians daughter. Another involved a serial stabber/rapist that John said was one of the most difficult of his entire career. Another involved a community outreach program to the projects that ended terribly, another was about a gang of policemen called the insane fish who were rebelling against heavy handed supervisors - these are just some of quite a few more.

All said, If you're here looking at it, this book is probably what you'd expect and well worth a listen. The book was finished off by John's daughters after he died and I think they chose an older gentleman that sounded like their father to read it. He does a pretty good job convincing you these are his words and the performance was pretty good.

Surprisingly a very entertaining book

I wasn't sure what to expect. But turned out to be a great listen. Trump and Schwartz simply take you through the history of Trumps major real estate deals in a somewhat chronological order. Starting with his origins working with his dad building low-income housing in the bronx, all the way to Trump Tower. Politics aside (and they mostly are in this book) its a great story.

The narrator (Kaleo Griffith) did a great job making trumps words (which are written in the first person) come to life. As many know, Trump has a very unique way of talking and writing.. maybe its a new york thing? in any case the narration was good.
