Summary
Preet Bharara has spent much of his life examining our legal system, most recently as United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, fighting for justice and fairness, prosecuting those who would harm the public through violence, fraud, and corruption. Bharara believes that the rule of law plays a critical role in sustaining our democracy, now more than ever. With captivating tales of true crime from his years atop the most storied prosecutor's office in the country--inside stories of terrorists threatening America, mob hit men, billion-dollar fraudsters, corrupt politicians, and even a 'cannibal cop'--Bharara entertains us, but also inspires us to aim high, laying out a path for how to think and act to reach fair and morally correct judgments. He shows us that rational, fact-based thinking, tempered with compassion, can lead us toward truth and justice not only in the courts but in our business lives and in our family dealings
