    The Price of Silence Kindle ã The Price PDF/EPUB ² price download, silence mobile, The Price free, The Price of Silence KindleI was interested in hearing about this scandal that happened a few years back The author was talking about it on the news and it sounded interesting However I think this book had lots of filler and contrary to what I heard in the interview there weren't really any new revelations in this book If you want to learn about this event I'm sure there are better accounts out there and I wish I had chosen wisely

    The Price of Silence Kindle ã The Price PDF/EPUB ² price download, silence mobile, The Price free, The Price of Silence KindleThis is revisionist history at its worstI recently read Until Proven Innocent another book on this same case and the hype surrounding it and I was curious about this book Unfortunately this book failed miserably in large part because the author seems to be trying to rewrite history to shape the case to fit his own narrative andor bias He relies on statements from an unethical and disgraced prosecutor Nifong and tries to insinuate in the face of overwhelming and incontrovertible evidence of the young men's innocence that something happened in that bathroom This book is a shameful manipulative look of this caseDorothy Rabinowitz of the Wall Street Journal has a particularly informative take on this book

    The Price of Silence Kindle ã The Price PDF/EPUB ² price download, silence mobile, The Price free, The Price of Silence KindleI didn't know much about the Duke lacrosse case so I found the details documented here extremely interesting It's easy to see why the case was so controversial and Cohan does a great job of summarizing it from the multiple different viewpoints involved However the book occasionally feels like a collection of press releases especially when Cohan quotes extensively from original documents and the book never really lives up to its subtitle Those expecting a look at the corrupting power of the elite may be disappointed

    The Price of Silence Kindle ã The Price PDF/EPUB ² price download, silence mobile, The Price free, The Price of Silence KindleI wasn't sure if I wanted to read a 600 plus page book about a crime that did not actually happen But I was interested in learning about this case which had such dramatic allegations and then fell apart spectacularly Cohan writes and reports well enough that the book held my interest until the endWhat I learned If you are boorish enough to call up an escort service and ask that two female strangers come to your house and dance naked in front of you and 40 of your drunken friends don't be shocked if one of the strangers turns out to be a physically damaged mentally fragile prescription drug addled creature who is willing to make up outrageous lies and report them to police nurses doctors prosecutors and the public She may have been raped in the past and she may actually believe the lies she is telling If you are racist enough to complain that you ordered white strippers scream racial slurs at nonwhite strangers in public and say Hey bitch thank your grandpa for my nice co

    The Price of Silence Kindle ã The Price PDF/EPUB ² price download, silence mobile, The Price free, The Price of Silence KindleWilliam Cohan delivers a painstakingly detailed portrait of everything that went wrong at Duke when a woman hired to strip at a lacrosse party accused three of the team's players of rape And that is precisely the problem it is painstakingly detailed Cohan seems to have included every single piece of evidence every interview every newspaper account every appearance by a talking head every blog post every blog comment in this 614 page tome It's too much He and his editor should have understood that not all information is equally important We all know what happened the accusations turned out to be false the players were innocent the district attorney was
