Do not judge a book by its cover

Friday, February 13, 2015

A few months ago a colleague gave me a book to read that he thought I would be interested in. We worked together on the Board of Directors of New Dawn Enterprises and I guess I made an impression. The book by Thomas Berger titled "One Man’s Justice: A Life in the Law" was supposed to be an autobiography of sorts( http://www.amazon.ca/One-Mans-Justice-Life-The/dp/1550549197 );  Hence, I wasn’t too eager to get into it. But, I do love to read, and the book came with a personalized note that encouraged me to read, learn, and pass it on because “books are meant to be read.”  I broke it open more out of boredom and guilt than any burning desire to read lawyers autobiography.  I’m glad I did.
