Near the beginning of The Autobiography of an Execution, David Dow lays his cards on the table. People think that because I am against the death penalty and don't think people should be executed, that I forgive those people for what they did. Well, it isn't my place to forgive people, and if it were, I probably wouldn't. I'm a judgmental and not very forgiving guy. Just ask my wife.

    " DNF: 140 pages of no point at all, except I get the author/attorney is overworked, conflicted, and an absent dad. "

    " I was floored by this book. Even though the narrative doesn't ring 100% authentic, it was deeply touching. The prose never disappoints. Beautifully written. Won't turn off the non-legally inclined population. "

    " This book was amazing. It made me cry and really think about the important aspects of my life. No book has ever made me feel this way before. "

    " I wish I had learned more about the topic and less about David Dow, his dream last night, his third grade teacher and where he went on vacation. "
