    Review Lisa Doble’s “Good Cop Girl Cop” is a raw and edgy look inside the life of a police officer. The book is a great mix of humour, disgust, dismay and dread, along with a wealth of knowledge that allows the reader to be right there in the moment. If you want to read a book about policing then this is the book to read. Lisa not only shares her experiences, she gives the reader the tips and advice to not only prepare for life in the police force but to survive it.

    Lisa’s book should be compulsory reading for anyone who ever thought they would be interested in a career in the Police for critics of the Police, and for politicians who think that the people in their electorates should be able to deal with cutting the manpower and frontline forces that are collectively known as the thin blue line. This is the line that holds back that terrible world that society today seems to be crumbling into. This is one woman’s story about how she dealt with that line.

This is the line that holds back that terrible world that society today seems to be crumbling into. This is one woman’s story about how she dealt with that line. There’s a good deal of swearing in the text which may put a few people off. But believe me when I say this is what it is to be in the police force. I felt like I was reading my own biography when I read this book. It’s a short sharp look at the real world gathered together in all its gory detail. If you think that the police are just like on the TV and in the movies, think again and read this book.

    Put simply, I loved this book. I probably haven't read a book in full for 15 years or so. I usually start one and no matter how thrilling or interesting it is, one day I just don't pick it up again. It then gets to the point where I either have to re-read the few chapters I have read to get up to speed again, or try to keep going, despite forgetting what I have read so far, so I just don't bother.

This book was right up my alley. I genuinely couldn't put it down. I read it during my babies nap time, when I was in the queue at the shops, and while I was burning dinner! Crime and policing is something that has always intrigued me, so a real first account was fascinating to me. I loved the humour of the author too and absolutely loved all the life lessons she talked about. For me it was (amongst a million funny/crazy/horrifying stories) almost an edgy, no bullshit, self-help book (which I would never read as I hate that shit). Back to my original point. Although it actually didn't apply to me on this occasion (as I read it in two days) I did love the fact that if I had put it down, I could easily pick it up again and keep going. Nice work, hopefully there will be a second one.

    I had the good fortune to sit next to the author at an awards ceremony where we both had books in the competition. I liked her book so much I bought it sitting at the table during the event. Afterwards I introduced myself and she gave me a copy. I gave that copy to someone who wants to be a cop. So this is kinda two reviews in one. I loved this book. I love the tone and the pacing and the stories. Having met the author I can honestly say there is a lot of of her in this book. Most definitely.

If you love true accounts with a sharp edge, this book is for you!

    Lisa is an ex-police officer, and the book is a delightful regaling of her tales during that time. Okay, maybe not delightful. Actually, I think the words I used were cringing and horrifying, but I also laughed and smiled at some of it too. No sugar coating here, the book is really honest and has some gross bits and some..shall we say...'colourful' language. I think we all know that cops put up with a lot of crap, but this really opened my eyes to just how tough they are, and how bloody bizarre h Lisa is an ex-police officer, and the book is a delightful regaling of her tales during that time.

    I started reading this not fully knowing what to expect. I was absolutely blown away by Lisa's story. It was extremely compelling. If you are looking to become a police officer, or if you simply just want to understand what its like to be in the profession, then look no further. This book gives a thorough insight on the life of the police and what they deal with on a daily basis. I found myself so invested in the book, that I read it from start to finish without putting it down once. I highly re I started reading this not fully knowing what to expect.

    Thank You, Lisa From one "girl" cop to another, thank you, Li--uh, Lethal. A great big hug from Radarears. For a while, you let me go home again. No one but us knows how much we can miss the sometime horrible job. You showed the good, the bad, and the boring even better than I do in my novels. We have a real sisterhood across the globe. And our brothers are a huge part of our lives. You bring all to life for the uninitiated. Thank You, Lisa From one "girl" cop to another, thank you, Li--uh, Lethal. A great big hug from Radarears.

    I absolutely loved this book! I love how Lisa was so open and raw about her experiences in the force. I don’t think anyone realises everything that police officers do and this book is such an amazing eye opener to everyone. I did not want to put it down and it did not take me long to finish it! Overall, I think this book is incredible and Lisa, you should be so proud of yourself for both writing this book and for what you did as a job!

I highly recommend “Good Cop Girl Cop” by Lisa Doble for anyone thinking of joining the Police Force to help guide you in making your decision, either way. Looking forward to your next book!

    What an inspiration you are Lisa! A story for any woman wishing to to join the force. I loved how the humour was used to tell the stories at times in difficult situations. Your passion,dedication& integrity was truly rep-presented throughout the book. A role model to your children ,and others who cross your path.

    Lisa has captured the trials and tribulations of her time as a woman in the police force with honesty and integrity. There is some real shock value which demonstrates courage and authenticity.

    This book tells it like it really is. Working in healthcare myself I have a great respect for the police, and Lisa tells what its like to be police "woman" in a dominated profession that is held by men. Really enjoyed.

    Great read Not written by a professional, but Very on point. Some harsh language, but that's to be expected. This author got it right, and seems to have hit all the right things. Well worth the time and effort for the read. P.S. I rarely give 5 star. Great read Not written by a professional, but Very on point. Some harsh language, but that's to be expected.

    I loved this book! It gives you insight to sooo many perspectives as a police officer. She talks about her daily life, different situations she’s been in, how to combat a male dominated career, how to cope as an officer, etc. She gives plenty of humor and jokes which adds to my liking. Great book and will purchase the 2.0 version!!!

In her book, author Lisa Doble shares her stories and experiences while being an Australian police officer for fifteen years. As a patrol officer, she encountered many crimes, criminals and difficult situations. This book sheds the true light on the dangerous horrific life of a dedicated cop. With graphic and gory details, Doble tells readers about her many encounters that are both horrific and deadly. She emphasizes that a police officer must, not only face these menacing criminals and preposterous, sickening and tasteless acts, but must also not back down from them. Making life for her and other officers threatening, heart wrenching, uneasy and violent. Good Cop Girl Cop is filled with story after story of the gritty details of crime scenes and scenarios, gruesomeness and out right jaw dropping incidents. However, this book is filled with humor as well. I found myself laughing out loud then cringing in disgust and terror throughout the entire read. It is an eye-opening book full of insight into the criminal world and the cops that must deal with them continually. Written extremely well with wit and humor, the author holds nothing back while giving readers full details of what she has encountered, endured and gone through. Sometimes Doble’s journey led her to disheartening and gut-wrenching scenes. It is certainly not what they show in movies. This is real life, with real sick minded criminals and stories of real police officers, both women and men. It gave me new respect for what they do to keep us safe from the lowest most despicable people in society. Good Cop Girl Cop is not for the faint of heart, but is so completely interesting and had me turning the pages quickly, fully enthralled and engaged. Lisa Doble was not only a fantastic, caring and brave cop but she is a fabulous writer too. This book will serve to help anyone who is considering this profession. It tells the truth of what it actually entails to be a police officer. She includes twenty-five life lessons for the reader to consider, follow and implement. Good Cop Girl Cop: The Secret Life of a Police Officer, is a 5 star, must read book of true stories that will captivate every reader. Highly recommended!

    This is a brilliant and honest account of the real life of a cop. From police training, right through to walking (and running) the beat, Doble will keep you on your toes. There will be accounts here where you will laugh, where you will cry, and other accounts where you will downright cringe! You might not even want to read on, but please do... There are some very good lessons to learn here.

There will be accounts here where you will laugh, where you will cry, and other accounts where you will downright cringe! You might not even want to read on, but please do... There are some very good lessons to learn here. The things a policewoman (or policeman) face in their job day by day, have lifted my respect for these guys and gals significantly. Not that I ever disrespected them, but having a glimpse into the true crime and into the life of those who have to manage it, makes me believe that truth can indeed, be more bizarre than fiction. I will warn you that police have a different tongue to many of us; they have a language of their very own which they learn on the force. That language might make your ears go bright red, or you might just lap it right up... But if you have sensitive ears be wary that you will hear plenty of the language with this account and no wonder, because they get it dished out to them every ******* day! I listened to the audiobook version of this and the author (Lisa Doble) narrates her own account very well. Her voice is interesting (if you can just get past that Police language thing, which she warns you about right off the bat) and will hold your attention. This book was given to me at my request, in exchange for an honest review!

    What its like to be a girl cop, and a whole lot more. I very much enjoyed this look at cop life – from the point of view of a woman in a men’s domain. It was fascinating to get behind the scenes of a career that I know only from the crime novels I’ve read. It’s funny, sad, tense, and sometimes gruesome – but that’s a policewoman’s world for you. Ms Doble sets a cracking pace and also draws life lessons from her experiences, which gives extra depth to the book.

    Audiobook review: Good Cop Good Girl is a short story involving a 15 year veteran female officer who relays a candid recap of memorable events and provides some very reasonable and necessary suggestions for those who are considering or in law enforcement. The story is interesting and entertaining! The narrator did a nice job. I received a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

    An interesting tale about cop life in another country and you get their perspective on how things get done over there. It had different stories that happen and some were funny,and others were not. But all in all you get to learn something new and even got a chance to hear an authentic Australian accent.(Which told a very good story, by the way!) So when you get a chance pick up a copy of either the Audio version or an eBook and enjoy.

    I'm required by law to state that I received a free copy of this book on audio in exchange for my unbiased review. The book itself is really interesting and well written, a nice overview of the life of a cop in Australia. The audio narration isn't so great. It's very tinny and distracting and made it really hard to concentrate. With better narration, the audio book version would be a lot better!
