Book Review: My Life in Court, 72 YALE L.J. 618 (1963)


I undertook to review this book about a year ago, and I have regretted it,
and put the job off, ever since. It is not that it makes difficult or tedious reading; far from it. My Life in Court deserves its place at the top of the nonfiction best sellers, for Mr. Nizer really has played a major role in some of the most divertiing litigation of our times; he seems to have almost total recall (and, no doubt, excellent files) ; and the good stories lose nothing in his telling of them. As bedside reading for lawyers and laymen, he is hard to beat.
