Don’t let this three buzz rating stop you from reading this book. True, it’s not well written, as often happens when one tells one’s own story (even with the help of a ghost writer). Nevertheless it’s a fabulous tale. If you are a person who has veered off onto a dark path or if you’re the parent or spouse or grandparent or friend of one who has done so, this story will inspire you. Shon Hopwood held up five banks and was sent to prison. Had he been a typical American prisoner, that would have been the end of his story. It’s not the end of Shon Hopwood’s story. He is now happily married, with two kids, and is attending law school. I’ll say it again: An inspiring story.
