Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption by Bryan Stevenson speaks to the US justice system as a whole but takes on three main issues the death penalty, racial and social inequality, and the treatment of juvenile offenders. The book anchors facts with heartbreaking examples, one case at a time. The stories makes the book readable and the facts memorable. The book begins a conversation and highlights how change can occur.

Thoroughly engaging, both sad and very happy, you learn a lot about Bryan's life's work and a lot about a few of the cases he talks about in the book. While you do get a little bit about Bryan himself, he tempers it so that the book isn't about him -- it's about the work he does and the people he serves. I think this is important because too often books like this you hear about the author's history as much - or more than - you hear about the topic of the book.

My hat is off to EJI and the work they do.
