In 1894 Clarence S. Darrow (1857–1938) resigned from his lucrative job as chief counsel for the Chicago and North Western Railway to defend, without fee, Eugene V. Debs, president of the nascent American Railway Union. This bold action-the first of many-marked the beginning of one of the most extraordinary and influential legal careers in American history. This is an interesting autobiography of Clarence Darrow’s life and of his beliefs. Some of the information in this book is as follows: He said that he sympathized with almost efforts of people to get better working conditions and better wages. He said that nobody gets to choose their biological parents.

Life Darrow recounts, & reflects on, his more than fifty years as a corporate, labor & criminal lawyer, including .

Life Darrow recounts, & reflects on, his more than fifty years as a corporate, labor & criminal lawyer, including the most celebrated & notorious cases of his day: establishing the legal right of a union to strike in the Woodworkers' Conspiracy Case; exposing, on behalf of the United Mine Workers, the shocking conditions in the mines & the widespread use of child labor; defending Leopold & Loeb i. I came to this book with the idea Clarence Darrow charged into the darkness with Commander Spock at his left shoulder; the Power of the Enlightenment in his right hand; and Darwin’s bulldog at his side. His autobiography made him seem much more human than that.

The Story of My Life. Octavo, original blue cloth, uncut and partially unopened, original dust jacket. When Clarence Darrow died in 1938 at the age of 81, few disputed that he was one of the great advocates of his generation. There were other lawyers in his lifetime who contributed more to the development of legal science, who rose to positions of greater influence, or who won larger financial rewards, but perhaps none who could equal Darrow's eloquence before a jury or who could match his record as a rough and tumble crusader for the common man" (NYU, 1078).

57 quotes from Clarence Darrow: 'Every instinct that is found in any man is in all men. The strength of the emotion may not be so overpowering, the barriers against possession not so insurmountable, the urge to accomplish the desire. The strength of the emotion may not be so overpowering, the barriers against possession not so insurmountable, the urge to accomplish the desire less keen. With some, inhibitions and urges may be neutralized by other tendencies. But with every being the primal emotions are there. All men have an emotion to kill; when they strongly dislike some one they involuntarily wish he was dead. Every instinct that is found in any man is in all men.

Clarence Darrow (April 18, 1857 - March 13, 1938) was an American lawyer and leading member of the American Civil Liberties Union.

This book successfully captured the life of Clarence Darrow, who is no doubt one of the greatest attorneys of the early 20th century. His abilities to defend the indefensible are most extrordinary. I will certainly recommend this book to anyone espeically pre-law or law school students

Their immediate defeat and death assure the life and victory of a Race. Of such a mettle as that is Bhai Parmananda fashioned. Swatantryavir Vinayak D. Savarkar. Excepting Lala Lajpat Raiji, the land of the five rivers has not produced in modern history a nobler Indian Patriot, a more devoted worker in the cause of the political freedom of Hindusthan, our Father Land and our Holy Land, while in suffering and sacrifice none who could be compared with him.

I read this in 7th grade (45+ years ago) - but it was well worth the re-read.
Miss Keller was an amazing woman. Just reading and understanding that
things were so much simpler then, but the strides being made to help folks
was great. There were several leads to other patients & researchers to
follow up on — which always makes me happy when a subject interests me.

I read this book at a time when l was feeling depressed about limitations associated with aging. It put my cares in perspective. I did feel the last few chapters are mostly lists, but that was what was important to her. She wrote this book while still in college. How much more she achieved in the rest of her life.

If population statistics were normalized, Helen Keller's STORY OF MY LIFE would rank among the most popular/translated books of the last 150 years. I believe I once read that, after the Bible, it was for a time the most common book in the American home. And with good reason. All the more reason to applaud this "Restored Classic" edition; no mere reprint, instead is is a multi-layered and multi-angled presentation of the original text edited by Roger Shattuck with Dorothy Herrmann. For me, besides the historical information contextulaized Keller's long and variegated career, the most moving revelations are the supplementary accounts by Anne Sullivan (her teacher) and John Macy (Sullivan's husband). I recommend these, especially Sullivan's "Letters and Reports", to any reader interested in pedagogy in many a field including but hardly limited to "special ed". The Forward, the Appendices, the Notes, the Afterword --- I can't speak highly enough of this disciplined and empassioned variety of scholarship. For teachers who may be feeling -- at whatever stage in ther careers, somewhat lost at sea, this is bedrock material and ground to stand on.

I have read the entire Mitford series multiple times and have all the books in hardback, but also read the covers off a set of paperbacks. I just started reading them on Kindle and still find the stories to be so fresh and uplifting. They take me to a place I want to live. Can't wait to start the next book... again!

It is incomprehensible to me how someone could learn to speak and write while completely blind and deaf depending on the feel of someone shaping letters for words into ones hand and figuring out how to build a vocabulary that way. Helen Keller and her teacher may be equally remarkable people. It makes one appreciate how good a mind may be hidden behind the inability to communicate for any number of causes. Helens writing lacks no element of sensory expression that one might expect from someone who lives without the use of two major senses.

This is not a new publication. The first part of the book is an autobiography written by Helen Keller near the close of her college career. The remainder of the book is comprised of material showcasing the growth of Helen's abilities in her own writings and in things written about her at that time.
This book is both captivating and amazing - Helen Keller would have been an outstanding woman on her own merits but considering the monumental obstacles she faced, you will walk away with absolute amazing respect for her and for her dear teacher, Ann Sullivan.

A favorite series! Read the whole series last year and I’ve started reading them again this year with the same enjoyment. Hate seeing the series end! Highly recommended for anyone tired of violence, bad language and sex! This series is truly delightful!
Inspiring auto bio of Helen Keller. I admired her will and spirit to overcome her deprivation of sight and sound. With her teacher Anne Sullivan, She aspired to do what was previously deemed impossible and live a purposeful and productive life. Rating A-
