When looking at this book, I chose to read it because I thought it would be entertaining. Having spent some time in a courtroom daily practicing law, I was curious what a judge would write about his experience. This book did not disappoint, it had humor and thoughtful perspective on life and family. I was most interested in the different cases he presented and how he struggled with making some of the decisions. Some of the cases reminded me of my own clients, some good people and some bad. I did enjoy this book and recommend it to anyone who is curious about the people in the courtroom and what they think about the experience.
