5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Brilliant Read, 21 Aug. 2010
By 
This review is from: Memoirs of a Radical Lawyer (Hardcover)
This book is inspirational. Had it been available years ago I am sure it would have been a catalyst for me to become a Barrister.

For many, lawyers and barristers are seen as people born with 'silver spoons in their mouths and are far removed from what everyday people experience. In addition, the Criminal Justice System for many is a huge imposing beast that is impossible to fight, so why bother. This book is a unique insight into our legal system as it has a human and humane focus and brilliantly demonstrates how individuals and small groups of committed people can change not only the law, but the attitudes of individuals and organisations that form the fabric of society that the law exists to serve. It also shows the human side of Mr. Mansfield (who was not born with a silver spoon in his mouth), and the work he and others like him do outside of the public view, giving freely of their time and services to help find the real truth, which for many is more important than justice.

This is a book for everyone, not just those with an interest in the law or the Criminal Justice system. It is a wake-up call for the individual, the everyday man or woman in our society. It is inspiring, empowering, motivational and moving. Mr. Mansfield's compassion for his clients and the society he serves shines through the book, which, since buying it I have found hard to put down. a book such as this is a well overdue in today's society

As an Expert Witness myself this book has sharpened my focus and motivation, and as a Consultant Trainer it has sharpened my resolve and determination to support those I train against the sometimes overwhelming odds faced when taking on large organisations and government departments.

Mr. Mansfield's book is brilliant, and I genuinely mean that most sincerely. I will be recommending it as a standard read for all of our trainers.
