"Terkel had a story about someone who works the same job as me. It was refreshing to see someone have a similar positive outlook on this job just as I have. It is great to see light being shone on the positives of our industry." JERRY SMITH, CONSTRUCTION WORKER
"Fascinating to get a look in how at least one bounty hunter goes about his job and what his job entails. Books like these give vast amounts of informative information while providing interesting topics to keep all readers interested." ED PUODZIUNAS
"Getting the inside look at some jobs that are not around any more, or not as popular, from a person who worked that job is incredible. A must read book. Cannot wait for his second one to come out with more interviews and different jobs!" TEMPLE TIMES
