Review was very much slanted with a Republican view. The author talked little about the severe abuse of pardons in the Clinton administration. Book is a waste of money.

Wow, so worth the read if you are at all interested in the justice system or racial (in)equality in this country. Very well researched, well worth the two bucks.

I disagree with the 1 star review that claimed this was a republican point of view. This is an issue that has needed dealing with for a very long time, as the book points out. Eye opening and poignant the authors insights made me really think about how we are dealing with this issue as a country, Republican and Democrat.
