Four Trials by John Edwards (2003). Four TrialsUnlike some trial lawyers who go into politics, Edwards is never one to play down his past. Following that instinct, Edwards has styled his official campaign memoir as an account of four of his past courtroom experiences. In the book, Edwards tries to present a Clintonian empathy for "regular folks" (a phrase Edwards likes) and paints endearing portraits of the victims he represented in medical malpractice and personal injury lawsuits. He also displays a keen understanding of the psychology of a jury, which he calls "a microcosm of democracy." Edwards weaves in recollections of his youth as the son of a working-class mill worker, his rise to prominence as a trial lawyer, and his dedicated family life (and the death of his son in a car accident). In fact, Edwards devotes so much attention to his trial lawyer years that he devotes almost none to his term in the US Senate. Although it was intended to come off like a courtroom drama, the book is chiefly of interest for the way it manifests Edwards's strategy to present himself as an advocate for the downtrodden.
