Editorial Reviews

Review

"[A] rip-roaring new ebook.... Goldhaber writes breezily and fluently as he guides us through this sorry tale.... Shocking, appalling, and hugely entertaining, it is a salutary read for anyone with the remotest interest in the issues." -Financial Times

"[A] superb feat of legal journalism.... If you're interested in legal ethics [or] the perils of litigating in undeveloped countries, you must read this." -Forbes

"[I]n 2011 the Ecuadorean judge... handed down a massive judgment.... Here 'Crude Awakening,' an e-book by Michael Goldhaber of the American Lawyer, takes over. He embeds his readers with Chevron's sleuths as they research the plaintiffs' case [u]sing copied hard drives, turncoat witnesses, bank records and scenes cut from 'Crude.'" -The Economist

"How to sort it all out?... Michael Goldhaber--a very smart international lawyer and Am Law writer--provides excellent and condensed insight into the story in a new online Amazon Kindle book for only $2.99.... Crude Awakening is great reading for anyone involved with mass torts.... Read the book--it's an easy read--the writing is intelligent and crisp, and distills out key elements from a massive story that deserves more attention." -GlobalTort

"Goldhaber is a terrific, witty writer.... [He] was in the courtroom during the trial, and it shows. But the best part of his book deals with what happened outside the courtroom, behind the scenes on the Chevron litigation team.... [It] will be eye-opening for the general reader." -Letters Blogatory

"Crude Awakening deserves the attention of lawyers, legal scholars, and anyone interested in human-rights litigation." -Businessweek
