    Description

    A New York Times best seller

    An important overview of the way our justice system works, and why the rule of law is essential to our survival as a society - from the one-time federal prosecutor for the Southern District of New York, and host of the Doing Justice podcast.

    Preet Bharara has spent much of his life examining our legal system, pushing to make it better, and prosecuting those looking to subvert it. Bharara believes in our system and knows it must be protected, but to do so, he argues, we must also acknowledge and allow for flaws both in our justice system and in human nature.

    Bharara uses the many illustrative anecdotes and case histories from his storied, formidable career - the successes as well as the failures - to shed light on the realities of the legal system and the consequences of taking action.

    Inspiring and inspiringly written, Doing Justice gives us hope that rational and objective fact-based thinking, combined with compassion, can help us achieve truth and justice in our daily lives. Sometimes poignant and sometimes controversial, Bharara's expose is a thought-provoking, entertaining book about the need to find the humanity in our legal system as well as in our society.

    Commentaires

    "Bharara positions Doing Justice as a treatise on 'the rule of law and faith in the rule of law' at a time when both are under threat. The contrast with Trump, and his contempt for the rule of law, is inevitable. Beyond simply rebutting the president, though, Bharara seeks to present the justice system Trump disdains as a source of inspiration for a healthier politics. His reflection on the role of the justice system in America is an effort both to make the inner workings of that system accessible to people unfamiliar with what criminal justice looks like from the perspective of law enforcement, and to suggest how people might apply ideals and habits honed in the courtroom to the patterns of everyday life." (The Washington Post)

    "His first book, Doing Justice: A Prosecutor’s Thoughts on Crime, Punishment and the Rule of Law, takes us back to basics, asking us to reflect on what truth means when a serial liar sits in the Oval Office; what civility involves amid all the social media yelling; and how to uphold the rule of law when thuggish behaviour appears to be the order of the day.... At its most powerful, Doing Justice works as a metaphorical survival guide for the Trump era. As with everything Bharara does, he writes in a tone that is calm and considered, a warm bath after the outrage of Trump’s daily tweets.... That’s what has made him such an unlikely superstar following his dismissal at Trump’s hands." (The Guardian)

    "Like the best lawyers (and writers), Preet Bharara tells a good war story. But Doing Justice is a great deal more - a vivid memoir of a critical job, a primer on the toughest questions of prosecutorial ethics, and a reminder of the drama inherent in life in the courtroom arena." (Jeffrey Toobin, author of American Heiress: The Kidnapping, Crimes and Trial of Patty Hearst)

    Super interessant

    L'auteur - ex procureur des Etats Unis licencié par Trump - illustre les grandes principes qui l'ont guidé dans sa vie professionnelle à travers des histoires captivantes et vraies. C'est passionnant, fait réfléchir et très bien lu et écrit dans un anglais limpide.
    Je recommande vivement !

    Timely released

    This timely released book is worth every penny. It’s informative, educational, interesting, and enjoyable.

    Preet Bharara reads the audible with such clarity and distinction it rivals articulate. The cases he writes about are so much more understood than previous reports. He is intelligent and knowledgeable without being arrogant. His ability to be humble and thoughtful is throughout this book.

    As with his podcast, his voice is very soothing. There’s a gentleness he possess that he can transfer to his guests.

    This book was needed because my mother suffered an aneurysm on the 19th and died March 21st and all I wanted was a sense of calm. Although there are heavy topics Bharara speaks about I was able to breathe through my pain and heartache. I preordered this book and thankfully he did not disappoint my expectations.

    Buy the book !! I’m not easily impressed and this book impressed me.

    Extraordinary true stories, beautifully narrated

    I have been a great admirer of Preet Bharara's views and analyses since I first heard him speak with Sam Harris on the "Waking Up" (now "Making Sense") podcast in Feb. 2018. After that interview, I immediately subscribed to Preet's podcast and still eagerly await hearing from him and his guests every week. Having listened to him for months, I knew I had to get the Audible edition of this book, narrated by the author.

    With my own bias known, I was still surprised how much I loved this book. It is logically organized, detailing key experiences and insight over his legal career. I found it thought provoking, inspirational and full of reverence and love for the rule of law and the dedicated women and men who serve the law. It also devotes time to the limitations and short-comings of our legal system.

    Preet is a much needed voice of calm reason, respect and humanity in these troubled times with just the right mix of humor to keep us sane. Thank you, Preet!

    Smart person with a kind heart writes a book.

    Great book, lots of valuable insights.

    But most important for me was the basic fact that such kind and thoughtful people exist in the world.

    That knowledge and the feeling this knowing brings is well worth the price of this book.

    A Must Read

    If you are interested in the legal system ad how it works from a prosecutor's perspective or if you just want to read a very good book, this is the one to choose. Mr. Bharara's writing style is down to earth, at times funny, and very insightful. Please write another book soon! There will be unlimited analysis opportunities related to the Trump administration and its negative effect on the United States and the world. I really appreciate Mr. Bharara reading this book himself. I don't think it would have been as impactful if read by someone else.

    Informative

    I saw an interview with Bharara on PBS. I found it so interesting, I bought the book. Preet Bharara is a former federal prosecutor for the Southern District of New York. The television show Perry Mason inspired a generation to go into the field of law. This book could inspire another generation to do the same.

    The book is well written and easy to read. Bharara discusses the law, moral issues, and does so in a conversational tone with interesting anecdotes. The author covers everything from the crime mob to insider trading along with other crimes committed by Wall Street. He also goes into the difficult decisions investigators have to make while conducting an investigation. His key example was the investigation into large scale corruption of New York’s elected officials. It is great to have a book discuss the importance of ethics. This is an excellent book and I highly recommend it.

    The book is ten hours and thirty-three minutes. Preet Bharara does a good job narrating the book.

    Bahara: The Soverign Southern District of New York

    In a revealing, moving, surprising and funny memoir, Peet Bahara, former U. S. Attorney , SDNY, delivers the human face of federal law enforcement. Bahara marries his devotion to justice and his open, supportive management style to his ability to spot and describe characters worth getting to know. He narrate his war stories well, telling these from a decidedly compassionate point of view. A shame he was fired by President Trump.

I highly recommend Doing Justice to all.

    A True Gem

    A wonderful book and I am grateful to Preet for writing it, especially in this time of uncertainty. It gives one hope that transformation is possible and it could begin with everyday actions and decisions.
