From the PublisherRichard North Patterson Moving and intensely human, Four Trials invests the stories of the ordinary people John Edwards served with the crackling drama of a novel. And he reminds us of what we too often forget — the indispensable role of our legal system in obtaining justice for the powerless from the privileged.
Senator Edward M. Kennedy I've known John Edwards since his election to the Senate in 1998, and I'm always impressed by his background as a successful lawyer and his reputation as a fighter for the underdog. But nothing prepared me for the power of this book and its moving stories. Anyone who reads Four Trials will have new respect for the genius of our legal system — and instantly understand why lawyers are so indispensable to the "little guy" and so hated by those in corporate America who are held accountable.
Senator John McCain In Four Trials, John Edwards has written movingly of people who were terribly wronged, and whom he helped seek some measure of justice with great skill, determination, and genuine compassion. He shows a perceptive appreciation in these accounts for the strength of his clients' character. And, in the loving portrait of his son, Wade, and the deeply touching account of his loss, John reveals the strength of his own character and gives the reader a look beyond a political biography into the heart of a good man.
