I was recommended this book via the Cracked podcast, and I fully appreciate the recommendation. I cannot say I enjoyed it, as the truths shared are harsh, painful even. Despite that I believe this an excellent work: truly it must have required great effort to amass the information within. If you have any interest in the legal system, believe in the justice of American courts or, like myself, have doubts as to their efficacy, I would strongly suggest this book.

Really interesting and important, but too long
This book, about the fairness and unfairness of our criminal justice system, starts out with a bang. I was riveted. Every hour, though, and I felt the book drag a little more. Too much repetition with not as many fascinating anecdotes. Even though I stopped when I was about two-thirds of the way through this, the good parts were so good that I still recommend this. It is important and interesting material. It just suffered from a lack of good editing, so I just self-edited it. This book did succeed in getting me to look at criminal justice in a new way. Very good narration.
