I had to buy this for a class I am taking and didn't expect to like it, but I really do. It is interesting to learn the background behind the stories that we have heard about and to learn additional stories including what went wrong and right.

This book has introduced me to many cases that I never heard of. The witing is clear and makes you want to research even more. I've had the pleasure of taking class with Professor O'Hara twice and he pushes me to work harder and that's rewarding.
