Publisher's summary

Law professor James J. Duane became a viral sensation thanks to a 2008 lecture outlining the reasons why you should never agree to answer questions from the police - especially if you are innocent and wish to stay out of trouble with the law. In this timely, relevant, and pragmatic new book, he expands on that presentation, offering a vigorous defense of every citizen's constitutionally protected right to avoid self-incrimination. Getting a lawyer is not only the best policy, Professor Duane argues, it's also the advice law-enforcement professionals give their own kids.

Using actual case histories of innocent men and women exonerated after decades in prison because of information they voluntarily gave to police, Professor Duane demonstrates the critical importance of a constitutional right not well or widely understood by the average American. Reflecting the most recent attitudes of the Supreme Court, Professor Duane argues that it is now even easier for police to use your own words against you. This lively and informative guide explains what everyone needs to know to protect themselves and those they love.

Featured Article: The Best Audiobooks Under 3 Hours


Audiobooks do not have to be long to provide a great listener experience. In fact, audiobooks as short as under three hours can sometimes be even better than longer listens: they require less of a time commitment, they make it easy to digest information, and they allow you to stay entertained during events of limited duration, like a road trip. And since each book is so short, you can listen to the ones you really love over and over again. Want an immersive audiobook that doesn’t take weeks to finish? Featuring great stories and strong performances, here are the best audiobooks under three hours.
