The scariest part about this book is that it is real, it is close to home, and it could be happening anywhere. Not only could be, but is happening all around the world today. A true wake-up call from our complacency, but written in a riveting story style that keeps you turning pages to see what happens next.

Awesome book, much better than the movie. A true story of an epic courtroom showdown. Two of the nation's largest corporations stand accused of causing the deaths of children. Representing the bereaved parents, the unlikeliest of heroes emerges: a young, flamboyant Porsche-driving lawyer who hopes to win millions of dollars and ends up nearly losing everything-including his sanity.

Non-fiction story of a Massachusetts lawyer who brought suit against two giants of industry to get compensation for his clients who suffered from cancer due to polluted drinking water. One of the first of such cases. Fascinating story of how he risked all he had to bring these people to justice - and the people he did it for. A very, very good read.
