    Harvey1: Both are excellent tales,which can be enjoyed again and again. Each journey from cover to cover leads the reader into a deeper appreciation for the scope of understanding into humanity; it's flaws, foibles, and force.

Nice. plenty strategy.
it's a book about smokers and how they are liable to die young and horrible findings on nicotine and it's addiction.
Especially how the tobacco companies target teenagers to become addicted. ( )

This was a good book and I did enjoy the ending. But I liked a few other Grisham books better than this. ( )

I've not read much of Grisham's work, but he's an author I generally enjoy, and while I've no interest in going back to re-read this the same way I did with The Street Lawyer, I don't have any real complaints. ( )

From Publishers Weekly
Grisham is either remarkably prescient or just plain lucky; because with public concerns about the tobacco companies heating up, and two major nonfiction books currently garnering a lot of attention, he has come up with a tobacco-suit novel that lights up the courtroom.

Epigraph
Every jury has a leader, and the verdict belongs to him.
Dedication
To the memory of Tim Hargrove (1953-1995)
First words
The face of Nicholas Easter was slightly hidden by a display rack filled with slim cordless phones, and he was looking not directly at the hidden camera but somewhere off to the left, perhaps at a customer, or perhaps at a counter where a group of kids hovered over the latest electronic games from Asia.
