Great book for scientists and attorneys alike,
This review is from: The Litigators (Paperback)
A friend with whom I often discuss books suggested I read The Litigators and lent me her copy. I am an applied biologist by training and I work as a consultant in animal agriculture. I found the scientific nature of the book's plot to be intriguing and prescient to our times. The book did an excellent job of addressing the issues of professional ethics within the business of science. Because I am a fan of Grisham et al. by avocation, I found the legal aspect of the plot to be thrilling as well. It has been my experience that graduate students of the life sciences spend no time studying the subject of scientific ethics. It would serve all students well to read this book and others like it. They need to be aware that no matter your career choice (professional consultant,entrepreneur, or attorney), they will be faced with ethical dilemmas almost daily, often from unlikely and/or unexpected sources.
As your read this wonderful novel, and I hope you do, ask yourself the following question--"Do I know someone like Henry Holten or Dillon Love, and whom would I rather have on my side?" The answer may surprise you!!
