Puppies Behind Bars by Christopher Makos gets a 4 out of 5 bookworm smiles from me. This is short of 5 because of the layout: the anecdotes from inmates, officers, and volunteers I think would’ve been better done had they been included with the photos instead of hidden in the very back. Some of the photos didn’t make sense–the close-up of an inmate’s stubble…really?–and some of the photos next to each other in this book made for some confusion because of the cropping. Also, some of the cropping was odd.

The book is worth reading. The anecdotes made me tear up, and I was sitting at the reference desk during my desk hours wiping away tears. But the format just didn’t do this book justice.

You can check this out from the 2nd floor @ SF431 .M35 2007
