The book illuminates on the in's and out's, and near art form, of the trial. It explores all the angles and tricks both prosecutorial and defense sided take. It also presents a strong case for justice system reform, and what kind of legislation has been offered, in recent years, to do that.
There is a error on why cops lie. He states they do it for the greater good. Only way go get the criminal. No they lie because they can and it helps with their performance eval. and future in the dept. Some crimes/arrest even when criminal is innocent and they know it but arrest him anyway guilty or not because the state and dept. gets federal monies for just the arrest alone. Cops do have ulterior motives just as with drugs being a gateway a little lie is gateway to bigger lies and abuse. Prosecutors have political agendas to lie. Both are protected from lawsuits due to lies. Look at all the innocent people in jail and death row.
Polygraphs don't even think about it.
