A Dubious Balance: Be Cool - Be Very Cool
Trafford Publishing, 2005 - 172 pages
In A Dubious Balance, the author, an American lawyer, recounts his experience trying to protect the interests of two clients, the one deemed schizophrenic, the other demented. He encounters a system which honors due process in the breach. Things are different for such as his clients; for such as him, too, as the reader will see. The book is straightforward nonfiction. Such mistakes that exist are not intentional. The names of three characters have been changed, for their sakes. The reader will see that and understand why. As for the rest, if people want to cavil, cavil away. The author did his best. This is his story; it's not perfect, but it is true.
