Some of our favorites:
- The Autobiography of an Execution, David Dow (here): yes, we're friends with David and Katya, but we'd like this book even if we didn't know them.
- Gideon's Trumpet, Anthony Lewis (here): a classic, and Gideon spent a week in Orange, Texas (NBR's home town).
- A Civil Action, Jonathan Harr (here): the movie (here) is good, too.
- We don't agree with everyone on this list of lawyers to study (here), but it's certainly a nice start.
- We haven't seen every movie on this list (here), but NBR likes The Thin Blue Line.
- And, for fun, there's nothing quite like the movie My Cousin Vinny (here).
