Gimme a Break: How I Exposed Hucksters, Cheats, and Scam Artists and Became the Scourge of the Liberal Media...

The host of the popular newsmagazine 20/20, Stossel describes how he evolved from a "consumer reporter" to a skeptic of the anti-corporate stories he initially pushed. Although Stossel's book covers far-ranging topics in addition to liability, his chapter on tort law is a good primer for the uninitiated, and his description of how self-interested plaintiffs' lawyers fed him "consumer reports" is illuminating.

John Stossel, Host, ABC News 20/20 (Harper Collins, 2004)
