Praise

“A cautionary tale about how political forces can undermine the quest for justice.” —Barbara McQuade, The Washington Post

“A terrifying book…The Justice Department needs to contend with Berman’s record of what happened to him in a much more serious way than they have, because that happened inside the Justice Department in a way that should never happen again and is likely to happen again now that we know that Trump was able to get away with it with no consequences.” —Rachel Maddow, The Ezra Klein Show

“With the storytelling skills of a trial lawyer . . . Berman’s book provides a cautionary tale about how political forces can undermine the quest for justice.” The Washington Post

“A memoir whose every page touches still-fresh headlines…This book stands not just as a compelling look at how justice works, but also as a fine specimen of sweet revenge. An instructive, highly readable account of the law, its protectors, and its enemies.” Kirkus Reviews

“Smart and crisp . . . Think of Berman as the honey badger–if the honey badger headed up a white-collar practice at a Wall Street law firm. He doesn’t give a fig. He holds the receipts . . . From the looks of things, Geoffrey Berman is having the last laugh.” The Guardian

“If Mr. Berman’s account is true, he and others in the department deserve praise for refusing to bow to political pressure. But more important is determining whether there are vulnerabilities in the Justice Department’s structure and procedures that need to be patched…The warning he sounds — about the fragility of justice and the danger that a second Trump presidency might pose — must not go unnoticed.” The Washington Post
