Perhaps the greatest public interest lawyer of all time, Ralph Nader, has placed our Prof. Andrew Ferguson's new book, Why Jury Duty Matters: A Citizen's Guide to Constitutional Action high (No. 2) on Nader's "serious pursuit of justice/happiness" summer reading list. 

Here's what Mr. Nader said:

 2.Why Jury Duty Matters: A Citizen's Guide to Constitutional Actionby Andrew Guthrie Ferguson (NYU Press, 2013).

I remember when Andrew was born. His mother gave him lots of attention, while also, then and now, directing the Pension Rights Center. The time was very well spent. For Andrew grew up to become a lawyer, a public defender, teacher and now an author who urges you not to be one of the too many citizens who under-appreciate and avoid the greatest civil institution of Anglo-America law - the jury. This is a brilliant and motivating plea to please serve when summoned.
