    1. We are a nation of laws. Without them, we would be back in the days of the Neanderthal. Unimaginable. In this first person narrative, the author gave me a bird's eye view of the hardship suffered by an individual at the hands of the judicial system. Lives can forever be drastically changed with the snap of a finger. In this case, a judge's finger. He proposed that punishment handed out by our courts do not necessarily always fit the crime. It never does. Ask anyone who'd been found guilty. Food [...]

    3. This book was a startling revelation for me of the American legal system as it affects the ordinary man. The author writes his very personal story of his battle with his wife's infidelity and the crisis of discovery that led to his conviction of domestic violence and the subsequent ordered months attending remedial group sessions. He writes of the group with humour and interest, and one can track the changes in his thinking as he strives to reconcile himself to the unfairness of his situation. I [...]

    4. 4+. This book is quite intense, and I mean it positively. I'm not quite sure what genre to put it in, other than non-fiction. A story of a deception and divorce faced by an American man, born and grown up in India, and his dealings with the USA justice system. There is a big part about the counseling meetings the author is ordered to partake, because accusation of violence by her spouse. Then there is the current situation at home. The devastation of the family unit, the disappointment, the self [...]

    5. The language and craft of the story is solid. It is more of a monologue of the protagonists but yes, there are conversations but in a lesser number. Nevertheless, readers would not be bored. Author is absorbed seamless into the protagonist that at some points, I kept on wondering if I am reading an autobiography. To read more visitbooklovers.iamsarav/2015/1

    7. Humbling and Humility by Rian Nejar is a first person account by a husband who has been found guilty of domestic violence and has to spend some time taking a mandatory course developed by the State. During this course, he meets other men and they share experiences. Reading the story, gave me the impression that the protagonist was stating his side of the story, perhaps because he feels that he has been wrongfully treated by the justice system. He also goes to a lot of length to cite examples of [...]

    8. Intense — the first word that comes to my mind to describe this book. Very interesting read which unveils the reality of American legal system and divorce courts for a common man. The story focuses on many serious topics and feelings of anxiety, depression, and suffering. Although I find the story to be a bit biased and would have appreciated if it would have tried to understand the wife’s point of view a little more but on the whole, it's an intriguing and engaging story. Great storytelling [...]
