What readers say

About The Judgement game

Cases that lead to reflection

"This book leads you to think about some social issues happening constantly in our society. The author presents very specific and tangible cases, in fact the stories have been taken from real life judicial cases, changing names and locations. Tt the end of each story a set of questions is proposed I find it very useful for one's personal reflection. As the author says "This is your journey: A quest for the self within the mystery of consciousness". Furthermore, you can take part of the internet survey provided for each of the book chapters and so interact not only with the book and the author but also with other readers. "

About The Judgement game

Fascinating book with realistic cases to resolve

"I bought this book at the book launch in Montpellier, France. I was hooked because during the launch we played one of the games in the book. It was a short vignette about prison guard brutality and we had to decide if a trap had been set for the lawyer going to visit the prisoner who had made the allegations. At the end of the vignette there was a series of questions to make us think about who was the target of the trap - the prisoner or the lawyer; whether it would be regrettable if the inmate or the lawyer was caught in the trap; and what the public would think.

It was a piquant taster of the book which has cases on obsession, addiction, breach of trust, family affairs and so on. Each little case is based on a number of real life cases that the author has come across in her career as a lawyer. She is eminently qualified to write this book having practised law for many years as well as holding academic positions."
