From Library Journal:

Pat Roth's busy suburban life was upended from October 1984 to February 1985 while she served as a juror in the Westmoreland libel case against CBS. Roth's diary, the source for this book, gives insight into the issues in which the trial was grounded: truth in news reporting and the veracity of Army counts of the enemy during Westmoreland's Vietnam command years. A more detailed account of the trial is Don Kowet's A Matter of Honor ( LJ 7/84). Roth's observations focus on such human factors as her struggle to avoid discussing the newsworthy case, her efforts to maintain her personal life, and her frustration in trying to educate herself about Vietnam. This very personal memoir will have its largest audiences in public libraries; it illustrates well the enormous challenges facing individuals trying to serve conscientiously as jurors. Susan E. Parker, Tufts Univ. Lib., Medford, Mass.
