Very interesting. It is obvious that the author does not really agree with his role in court decisions. He states many times that the courts are biased toward the defendant and not the victim. In the many cases he lists this does seem to be the case. The courts are full of people whose crimes are argued down based on diminished capacity at the expense of the victim and what they have suffered.

This overall was a very interesting read with a good mix of clinical, legal, and dramatic information.
