The Runaway Jury

ISBN: 0440221471
Dell (1997), Mass Market Paperback, 560 pages
This is an older book now, and I read it many many years ago but re-read it this last couple of weeks. I enjoyed this book. Its believable (if a little dated now), and interesting. It certainly made me think more about the first amendment and how it affects dangerous products like cigarettes than I would have otherwise.
