David Boies, the man dubbed by The New York Times as "the lawyer that everyone wants" is at the forefront of American legal icons -- his battle defending Vice President Al Gore during the 2000 Florida recount frenzy has earned him the moniker "the Michael Jordan of the courtroom." In his memoir, Boies brings to life his personal details, from an unassuming boyhood in small-town Illinois to the brief career as a cardsharp that honed his photographic memory, to the hard lessons he learned in law school along with his high-profile battles at trial. His clients have included Calvin Klein, Don Imus, Gary Shandling, and major corporations like Napster and CBS. Eye-opening and compulsively readable, Courting Justice is a remarkable insider's look at the upper stratosphere of American litigation.
