Second reading - A must read for those who want to understand how the clan was brought down by a determined lawyer. The lawyer was Morris Dees. We need more lawyers like him to make sure nobody is breaking the law be it someone outside the government, a hate group or someone in the highest office in government

First reading - Great Book. As I was finishing up the book I couldn't help but think that other than their religious affiliation there is no difference between the Ku Klux Klan and ISIS.
