This well written book details a real and increasing problem of American polity.
Even if you haven't committed a crime, by the time the DOJ is finished freezing your assets (so you can't afford adequate defense), harass your friends and family (to get them to turn on you... and even threaten them with their own indictments), feed false information to the media and ruin your reputation, career, social life, etc., you're going to want to plea bargain... no matter how innocent you are.
A good step to instigating some reforms.
Despite all the positives in the book, while reading it I very often found myself wishing that Silverglate had a better editor. To put it simply, the book was not crafted well and is not a good piece of writing. Additionally, I often found that Silverglate sounds more like a lawyer advocating for a client than an uninterested author. The facts as Silverglate presents them are at times so blatantly one-sided that it distracts from the very valid thesis of the book. Nevertheless, despite these issues, because the issues detailed in the book are so important I recommend it.
