A room without books is a body without a soul  — Cicero

N is for Knuckleheads

 

As a trial lawyer, Joe Genshlea has devoted a lifetime to discovering what is true in complex matters. Over his career, it is fair to say that he has encountered a number of “Knuckleheads,” his term for politicians, reporters, and others who for some inexplicable reason put belief before reason, defer to ignorance rather than fact, and overall are responsible for misinformation and bad decisions. In N is for Knuckleheads, Joe skewers some current fallacies with satire and common sense. These essays range from the Supreme Court to nuclear power to the Catholic Church’s handling of pedophilia to the Constitution. This book will give you fresh insights and make you rethink various myths, mistakes, and misunderstandings reported by the popular media as “Facts.”

 

In thirteen essays on topics that range from the Supreme Court’s recent decisions, to changes to our Constitution, to civil disobedience, to the truth about lying, to what guilty means, and to the importance of the military draft, Joe addresses some common fallacies. Do we live in a democracy? Think again! You may not always agree with Joe, but this book will change how you look at governmental decision-making processes.

 

Joe has had a forty-year career as a highly successful trial lawyer. Based on his accomplishments he was one of the early lawyers in California to be elected to its State Bar Trial Lawyer Hall of Fame and has received numerous other awards for legal and philanthropic work.
