Reviews:

“REVERSAL OF FORTUNE has been subject to many analyses over the years. This one is the best I have seen for law students and a legal audience. It really gets to the heart of the legal, tactical, and ethical issues in the case. It would be extremely useful for law students who view the film to read this perceptive and insightful analysis.” -Professor Alan M. Dershowitz, Felix Frankfurter Professor of Law, Harvard University,

“I wish I had this book when going through law school. It’s perfect for those times when a student needs to step back from studying legal concepts and yet wishes to learn from a different angle." -Patricia E. Weidler, Esq.
