Ordinary Injustice: How America Holds Court

#ad
#ad
Picador #ad - Holt McDougal. Going beyond the usual explanations of bad apples and meager funding, Ordinary Injustice reveals a clubby legal culture of compromise, and shows the tragic consequences that result when communities mistake the rules that lawyers play by for the rule of law. What she found was an assembly-line approach to justice: a system that rewards mediocre advocacy, bypasses due process, and shortchanges both defendants and victims to keep the court calendar moving.

Ordinary Injustice: How America Holds Court #ad - Sage Publications Ltd. It is time, bach argues, to institute a new method of checks and balances that will make injustice visible―the first and necessary step to reform. Here is the public defender who pleads most of his clients guilty with scant knowledge about their circumstances; the judge who sets outrageous bail for negligible crimes; the prosecutor who habitually declines to pursue significant cases; the court that works together to achieve a wrongful conviction.

A groundbreaking book. Revealing the systemic, everyday problems in our courts that must be addressed if justice is truly to be served. Doris kearns goodwinattorney and journalist Amy Bach spent eight years investigating the widespread courtroom failures that each day upend lives across America.

Irresistible: The Rise of Addictive Technology and the Business of Keeping Us Hooked

#ad
#ad
Penguin Books #ad - One of the most mesmerizing and important books I’ve read in quite some time. Sage Publications Ltd. We obsess over our emails, instagram likes, and Facebook feeds; we binge on TV episodes and YouTube videos; we work longer hours each year; and we spend an average of three hours each day using our smartphones.

Half of us would rather suffer a broken bone than a broken phone, and Millennial kids spend so much time in front of screens that they struggle to interact with real, live humans. In this revolutionary book, tracks the rise of behavioral addiction, Adam Alter, a professor of psychology and marketing at NYU, and explains why so many of today's products are irresistible.

Irresistible: The Rise of Addictive Technology and the Business of Keeping Us Hooked #ad - Harvard Business School Press. Alter brilliantly illuminates the new obsessions that are controlling our lives and offers the tools we need to rescue our businesses, our families, and our sanity. Adam grant,  new york times bestselling author of Originals and Give and TakeWelcome to the age of behavioral addiction—an age in which half of the American population is addicted to at least one behavior.

Though these miraculous products melt the miles that separate people across the globe, their extraordinary and sometimes damaging magnetism is no accident. The companies that design these products tweak them over time until they become almost impossible to resist. By reverse engineering behavioral addiction, alter explains how we can harness addictive products for the good—to improve how we communicate with each other, spend and save our money, and set boundaries between work and play—and how we can mitigate their most damaging effects on our well-being, and the health and happiness of our children.

Adam alter's previous book, feel, drunk tank pink: And Other Unexpected Forces that Shape How We Think, and Behave is available in paperback from Penguin.
