I read his first book and consider it an important part of my library. This update will join it, especially since he has opened a memorial to the lynched and slain blacks who have been a part of America's cultural heritage.
My son and I took turns reading this book as we do before seeing a movie if there is one available. I am so glad that I had the opportunity to read this one. The information is accurate in regards to our judicial system and how it has failed so many. The use of other cases and information all tie in and makes you want to look deeper and learn more past the pages of the book. It was well written, honest and compassionate as well. I would definitely recommend to others.
Wonderful Book! Author is very transparent about his experiences and the impact systems designed and targeted to oppress people of color and the poor work as intended. Bryan Stevenson is brilliant! His legacy has changed lives of many destined to be forgotten. He deserves a Nobel Peace Prize and more money to continue this important work.
