"What we have in Freiberg, I'm happy to say, is the Oliver Sacks
of law."-Bessel van der Kolk, M.D.
"Freiberg assembles a sparkling collection of exceedingly erudite essays on human nature as seen through the lens of some of his most memorable legal cases."-Booklife "This book is a compilation of extraordinary stories told by a master storyteller. J. W. Freiberg has met some amazingly resilient survivors of a somewhat broken system and has told their tales with uncommon grace. His humanity, his compassion, and his love for the details of the law shine through his stories with clarity!"-Jacqueline Olds, MD

Freiberg has so much to teach us about the causes of loneliness and what it's like to be trapped there. And he's a hell of a storyteller with some amazing tales to tell."-Richard Schwartz, MD
