Reviews

"[Thomas Geoghegan] possesses a felicitous writing style that can marry anecdote and analysis." β€”The New York Times Book Review

"Geoghegan's insouciant style makes fresh the ins and outs of an attorney's day and the way lawyers handle each other and judges. . . . A letter to young law-school grads seeking to change the world." β€”Kirkus Reviews

"Geoghegan writes with endearing verve and worldly good humor even when bemoaning what he regards as the worst excesses of the criminal justice system. . . . What most enlivens the book, however, is a passion for justice that is found in precious few attorneys in America today." β€”Jonathan Kirsch, The Washington Post Book Review
