The New York Times Bestseller 'Simply, utterly brilliant. Bursting with humility and humanity' The Secret Barrister 'An elegant, philosophical and, at times, moving memoir of what it is like to serve as America's most high-profile legal official' Financial Times Multi-million-dollar fraud. Terrorism. Mafia criminality. Russian espionage. As United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, Preet Bharara prosecuted some of the most high-profile cases in America. In Doing Justice he takes us inside America's criminal justice system to deliver a powerful meditation on justice - what it is, who dispenses it, how it works - and what the law can teach us about thinking and acting justly in our own lives.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Doing Justice is about ordinary fallibility, and how those responsible for the dispensation of justice are regular humans, prone to act as humans do . . . Filled with sobering stories about error and - in the more beautiful, memorable cases - ingenuity, determination, redemption * New York Times *
At its most powerful, Doing Justice works as a metaphorical survival guide for the Trump era. As with everything Bharara does, he writes in a tone that is calm and considered, a warm bath after the outrage of Trump's daily tweets. That's what has made him such an unlikely superstar following his dismissal at Trump's hands * Guardian *
Bharara positions Doing Justice as a treatise on "the rule of law and faith in the rule of law" at a time when both are under threat . . . His reflection on the role of the justice system in America is an effort both to make the inner workings of that system accessible to people unfamiliar with what criminal justice looks like from the perspective of law enforcement, and to suggest how people might apply ideals and habits honed in the courtroom to the patterns of everyday life * Washington Post *
A vivid memoir of a critical job, a primer on the toughest questions of prosecutorial ethics, and a reminder of the drama inherent in life in the courtroom arena -- Jeffrey Toobin
Bharara expertly weaves real-life stories of law and disorder into a compelling examination of our collective understanding of justice . . . Vital and urgent -- The Secret Barrister
An elegant, philosophical and, at times, moving memoir of what it is like to serve as America's most high-profile legal official. Deserves to be widely read beyond the legal world * Financial Times *
The man who terrifies Wall Street * New Yorker *
[Preet] has somehow managed to be incredibly smart, principled, independent and hilarious all at the same time -- James Comey
