He was also well-known as a public speaker, debater, and writer. (from encyc. brittanica)

The Story of My Life - by Alan M. Dershowitz (Introduction), Clarence S. Darrow - WOW

Attorney for the Damned : Clarence Darrow in the Courtroom - by Arthur Weinberg (Editor), William O., Justice Douglas, Clarence Darrow, William D. Douglas (Designer) - - - just look at these authors --- a reader writes: It is nice to know that in one point in our society that there was somebody who cared about the little guy, the poor,the downridden, the underdog etc.,Clarence Darrow found a cause and stuck to it like a fly on poop. It takes guts to stand up against the establishment and never apologize for it. We need more guys like him.

Why I Am an Agnostic and Other Essays (The Freethought Library) - by Clarence Darrow: The renowned lawyer Clarence Darrow (1857-1938) was also an impassioned defender of intellectual freedom, individual liberties, and social injustice. In these wide-ranging essays, Darrow attacks beliefs in the inerrancy of the Bible, the immortality of the soul, miracles, and heaven as being completely at odds with human experience and science.

The World of Benjamin Cardozo : Personal Values and the Judicial Process - "The sordid controversies of litigants,” Benjamin Cardozo once said, are “the stuff from which great and shining truths will ultimately be shaped.” As one of America’s most influential judges, first on New York State’s Court of Appeals and then on the United States Supreme Court, Cardozo (1870–1938) oversaw this transformation daily. How he arrived at his rulings, with their far-reaching consequences, becomes clear in this book, the first to explore the connections between Benjamin Cardozo’s life and his jurisprudence. - - - a very relevant book.

Learned Hand : The Man and the Judge - The greatest judge never to be named to the Supreme Court, Learned Hand was considered the peer of Justices Holmes, Bradeis, and Cardozo. As a federal judge for more than half a century, Hand left an unequaled legacy of opinions and addresses. Now a distinguished scholar makes first use of Hand's private papers to detail his life and thoughts. Photographs. another interesting book.

The Age of Spiritual Machines : When Computers Exceed Human Intelligence - if Ray Kurzweil is right, we've only got until about 2020 before computers outpace the human brain in computational power. Kurzweil, artificial intelligence expert and author of The Age of Intelligent Machines, shows that technological evolution moves at an exponential pace. Further, he asserts, in a sort of swirling postulate, time speeds up as order increases, and vice versa. He calls this the "Law of Time and Chaos," and it means that although entropy is slowing the stream of time down for the universe overall, and thus vastly increasing the amount of time between major events, in the eddy of technological evolution the exact opposite is happening, and events will soon be coming faster and more furiously. This means that we'd better figure out how to deal with conscious machines as soon as possible--they'll soon not only be able to beat us at chess, they'll likely demand civil rights, and they may at last realize the very human dream of immortality. -- an oustanding must get book!

The Pattern on the Stone : The Simple Ideas That Make Computers Work (Science Masters Series) - Danie (connection machine) l Hillis has made a career of puzzling over the nature of information and the mechanisms that put information to use. Now, he's distilled his accumulated knowledge of computer science into The Pattern on the Stone, a glorious book that reveals the nature of logical machines simply and elegantly.

The Century - A LAND MARK BOOK FOR THIS ERA ... coauthored by PETER JENNINGS - - - the news anchor ... "We have sought," write Peter Jennings and Todd Brewster, "to distinguish our story from other histories by holding each chapter up to a litmus test: Have we looked at this time from the perspective of someone who lived through it? And in doing so, have we captured a sense not only of the events of a particular era, but of the mood, the prevailing attitudes?" Thus, the experiences of ordinary men and women come to life in sidebars that appear throughout The Century. Sharpe James, the mayor of Newark, New Jersey, recalls the sense of excitement and possibility he felt when Jackie Robinson became the first black ballplayer in the major leagues. Gilles Ryan remembers what it was like to be a high-school student in Dayton, Tennessee, during the Scopes Trial. Connie Chang talks about emigrating to the United States from Korea and establishing a liquor store in Los Angeles, only to have it destroyed in the civil unrest. --- what this boils down to is ...

Microsoft Secrets : How the World's Most Powerful Software Company Creates Technology, Shapes Markets, and Manages People - DO YOU WANT TO KNOW HOW BILL GATES REALLY MADE HIS BILLIONS -- AND HOW HE WILL CONTINUE TO? Read this book ... The description says: Today, Microsoft commands the high ground of the information superhighway by owning the operating systems and basic applications programs that run on the world's 170 million computers. Beyond the unquestioned genius and vision of Bill Gates, what accounts for Microsofts astounding success? Drawing on almost two years of on-site observation at Microsoft headquarters, eminent scientists Michael A. Cusumano and Richard W. Selby reveal many of Microsoft's innermost secrets. This inside report, based on forty in-depth interviews by authors who had access to confidential documents and project data, outlines the seven complementary strategies that characterize exactly how Microsoft competes and operates, including the "Brain Trust" of talented employees and exceptional management; "bang for the buck" competitive strategies and clear organizational goals that produce self-critiquing, learning, and improving; a flexible, incremental approach to product development; and a relentless pursuit of future markets. Cusumano and Selby's masterful analysis successfully uncovers the distinctive way in which Microsoft has combined all of the elements necessary to get to the top of an enormously important industry -- and stay there.
