I enjoyed this story because I like legal stories. However, it was a bit too much of the authors self serving grand standing. However, the end effect was amazing for everyone.
COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN! This book was riveting, candid and utterly captivating. As one who suffered from a chemical overexposure (inadvertent on my end) herself, I cannot tell you how satisfied I am to see that some people actually search a modicum of justice for what they suffer at the hands of an industry hell-bent on maintaining the toxic status quo. In an era characterized by regulators as unethical and/or corrupt as the industries they're regulating, I am so glad to see people in positions of power feel compelled to keep the perpetrators accountable. Given the state of *regulation* (Ha!) these days, the justice system is our latest best hope for recourse. Until these poison purveyors are forced to absorb the real costs (environmental, personal/public health) of their products, we (society) are going to continue to pay the price. I thank God for the judges and trial lawyers who keep these pesticide makers somewhat accountable. You may wish to shrug off the caveats issued in this tome, but I'd take the lesson to heart, as chemical sensitivity and pesticide poisonings seem to be on the rise, not the decline. One day someone you love could be a victim of our improperly regulated, inadequately tested pesticide products (e.g. data not created public, not truly independent, tested only on animals). Better to be safe than sorry. These pesticides pose an unnecessary and substantial risk to children, expectant mothers, and the immune-compromised especially. There are other, better ways to handle pests -- options that don't require us to choose between our health and our crops.
This book reads like a John Grisham novel except this story really happened. Once I started reading it, I couldn't place it down! I read it in 2 days. I was shocked by how corrupt DuPont was throughout the trial and found myself rooting aloud for the plaintiffs and the author as they fought on behalf of the young boy harmed by DuPont's negligence. The story is moving, inspiring and an extremely interesting look at our legal system, the loopholes designed to serve huge business and the method a company like DuPont gets their risky chemicals to the marketplace without concern for innocent bystanders. They place profit over people. I hope they create this book into a movie. It's Erin Brokovic meets Civil Action. Not a massive read like you might expect, but an necessary and relevant read given the changes event with the EPA. If you like legal thrillers, this is a amazing book for a summer read.
The book confirms what most sane Americans know that corporations are for the all mighty dollar over individual souls. We have seen and heard over the years that company’s knew they had issues with their products but yet have sold them to the public without regards to public health because some Actuary has told them the risk of making millions is worth the risk of a law Ferraro is a man with a Huge Heart to place up his own cash and over 10 years of his life to support a family in need of a Savior. I know of these corporations because I worked for one for 30 plus years. And after I retired I found I was getting short of breath and had to be place on an inhaler then I found I had Asbestosis in my lungs from my 30 plus years of service to go along with the clock they gave me. We need more like Mr. Ferraro Law firm so we the people can be safe from those who place the dollar over souls. I thank you for helping me Mr. FerraroArt Stewart
Fascinating and inspiring story. I'm particularly interested in the notion of junk science and the law. And this story brings to light the importance of holding huge corporations responsible for their products. As a parent I was moved by the journey this family took and the struggle they endured to bring justice to their sightless son. The story is riveting. I hope to see it on the huge screen.
This is a very interesting narrative about a complex and necessary legal case versus chemical manufacturer DuPont. The science was fascinating and well explained. The case raises necessary questions about environmental safety and recourse when things go wrong. Well written and engaging.
Amazing read. Awesome story about what happens when the small guy triumphs over an almost insurmountable Giant. This story reads like a amazing novel, but it is true! I found Blindsided to be extremely relevant considering what is going on right now. So scary to think that this could happen to anyone, anywhere. If you care about the environment, water, air and corporate greed, do yourself a favor, and read this book.
This story is a real story about one child's birth defect caused by a humongous corporation, who fought to deny any culpability and the lawyer who finally won for the child. It is a first person acc by the lawyer, laid out in an understandable way. A journey through the legal system with all it's biases and politics as well as the legalities. Even though you know the outcome it is a amazing read.
