This is a lawyer's memoir with a difference, an inspiring antidote to the usual catalogue of tedious milestones towards legal eminence. Constance Briscoe's youth was as different from a typical lawyer's upbringing as it was possible to get. Brought up poor and loveless in south London by a mother who disliked and abused her, physically and emotionally, and a stepfather who abused her too, she went to schools that failed to recognise her intelligence and abilities. As if that wasn't enough, she was seen by all around her, and regarded herself as - in the title of her autobiography - Ugly ... She is now a highly regarded barrister and was among the first black women to become a recorder, a part-time judge. She's also managed - a rare feat for a lawyer - to write an absorbing book in language untainted by convoluted legal-speak.

Reference: - Internet...forgot which site

I have read the book, and it does inspire me. By reading the book, I not only feel how lucky I am but also I asked myself why and how a mother could ever hate her child as such...Mother, I think, is the greatest title a woman can have. The love that she can give is so unlimited. But why, does the mother here, obviously had none for Constance...She was ill treated by I think everyone in her family except some people from the outside.
I won't say "Enjoy this book" but rather "Read it, it would show your way to success."

My mother banned me from reading any book this term Sad ...because once I start reading I forget everything else, only the book matters... I guess it's for my own good... Uri has interesting books, but most , if not all, of them are in chinese Suspect Neutral
