I read Gloria Allred's book FIGHT BACK AND WIN with great interest. I have always admired Gloria because she stands up for those who are traditionally not empowered in society, including women and children, and she's been very involved in fighting for victims' rights. I thought the book was very well written and the part on Gloria's childhood and upbringing in working-class Philadelphia was very interesting. Anyone who is interested in becoming an attorney because they want to make a difference in somone's life will enjoy reading this book.

I've met Gloria Allred on several occasions and was a guest on her radio show, shortly after the O.J. Simpson trial. In fact we were both guests at the same party where OJ was at 24 hours before the infamous killings.

She is a warm, fascinating woman, fearless lawyer, feminist, activist and television and radio commentator. She is all these things and more.

Fight Back and Win offers colorful--sometimes shocking-- examples of self empowerment from her personal and professional life. Fight Back and Win is a powerful testament to Gloria's trailblazing career and the battles she has fought alongside countless brave individuals to win justice for us all. She also inspired me to go to law school!

The book started off well enough - the introduction by Gloria's daughter Lisa Bloom was interesting to read, as was the forward by Gloria herself. I particularly enjoyed the first chapter, which recounted Gloria's childhood, parents, and decision to enter law. There were lots of new facts to be learned about her and what molded her decision

to enter women's rights law - specifically, that she was raped, had an abortion, and earned less than her male counterparts. The remaining chapters were, unfortunately, not as great as the first. I would have preferred, I suppose, an autobiography of Gloria, but the book basically

highlights the biggest cases from her career. There is the Amber Frey case, OJ Simpson, Hunter Tylo, etc., and the end of each chapter concludes with a snippet of "fight back and win" advice. The advice, however, is unrealistic for many of us ordinary folk - Gloria tells us how to handle the media, courtroom testimony, police investigations, etc. I was thinking - how many of us are really going to need advice on criminal court cases? If you are interested in reading about some of Gloria's more high-profile cases then the book will be interesting but, if you want to learn more about the woman herself, just read the first chapter or wait for an autobiography.

Gloria shows her true colors. She's a woman who isn't afraid to fight, to inspire, to lead and to express her opinion on many women's civil issues. I recommend this book to every person. Sometimes the causes that we fight for hurt society but sometimes they help individuals who otherwise would not have advantages to have their day in court. Freedom is such a delicate matter but not approaching issues with fervent gusto is being ignorant. Gloria Allred's best message in this book is don't be ignorant.

I was raped at work for a nationally-known non-profit and then fired for reacting intensely and loudly. That was a long time ago, but it keeps tormenting me, mostly because I see all those people, including my rapist, being treated as a saint. I wrote to Gloria for advice if not representation, but she was too busy. So, I bought her book. I feel validated and armed with some advice and reassurance enough to take an active role in my own rehabilitation, and maybe some revenge.

I'm up against a judge that thinks she should be handling the insurance money my daughter left for her sons, when she died (at 38 years old), and not their grandmother. Instead of a college fund, she wants the policy cashed out and put into blocked accounts that the court will have jurisdiction over. My thoughts? - my daughter worked for 20 years and left this money to her children, not the courts. So the fight is on! Thanks Gloria for the tools to stand up to the injustice of justice.
