Publisher Comments:

Raised in a small town by parents employed in the local mills, John Edwards worked in those mills himself — and then went on to become one of America's most successful and respected attorneys. He built a national reputation representing people whose lives had been shattered by corporate recklessness and grievous medical negligence. In landmark cases, Edwards helped people from all walks of life stand up for themselves against tremendous odds. Four Trials provides an electrifying account of four of his cases as it tells the story of the courageous and unmistakably decent people Edwards was privileged to represent in times of tragedy, great loss, and often great joy. And in a deeply moving account, Four Trials also speaks of the tragedies and joys that Senator Edwards has known in his own life — and how today life and justice are more precious to him than ever.

Review:

"Edwards can tell a good yarn, and at times this book works as a courtroom drama. But it suffers from shoddy, platitudinous prose." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"John reveals the strength of his own character and gives the reader a look beyond a political biography into the heart of a good man." Senator John McCain

Synopsis:

Four Trials is revelatory and empowering, filled with stories that belie the all-too-common perception that ordinary people are powerless against corporate negligence and greed. It's a timely look at the ideals that drive one of America's most prominent politicians — and a fascinating record of some of the greatest courtroom battles of the past two decades.

About the Author

Senator John Edwards practiced law for twenty years, representing families and children hurt by the negligence of others. In 1998, he was elected U.S. Senator for North Carolina, where he lives with his family.
