"An entertaining book that will leave readers chuckling, speechless or both... The secret to Ford's success is simple: He knows of what he writes. And he kept good notes in a diary during his career as a warden, realizing that someday, someone might want to hear his stories. That's all great news for readers, who will gobble up his collection of stories."
