Welcome to the world of the Secret Barrister. These are the stories of life inside the courtroom. They are sometimes funny, often moving and ultimately life-changing. How can you defend a child abuser you suspect to be guilty? What do you say to someone sentenced to ten years whom you believe to be innocent? What is the law, and why do we need it? And why do they wear those stupid wigs?

This book is an enlightening education into a profession most think they understand. It dissembles the PR spewing out of parliament and challenges the notion that justice is always delivered. Highly recommended 👍🏻

This charming story about a penguin colony in Antarctica illustrates key truths about how deal with the issue of change: handle the challenge well and you can prosper greatly; handle it poorly and you put yourself at risk.

Excellent use of a fable to get across the eight step process of change. On the second listen more and more profound pointers were revealed to me. Great investment.
