'Crude Awakening' Kindle Single eBook Gives Definitive Account of Chevron v. 
Donziger Trial and Investigation 
NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 08/21/14 --  Crude Awakening:
Chevron in Ecuador, published by leading independent digital
publisher RosettaBooks, picks up where other accounts of Chevron in
Ecuador leave off. It relates the gripping inside story of Chevron's
New York "counter-trial" against the plaintiffs who won a record $19
billion environmental judgment in Ecuador. Written by legal
journalist Michael D. Goldhaber, who was first to publicize the Crude
film outtakes and to condemn them, Crude Awakening is the only book
to examine: 

--  What are the underlying merits of the environmental case?
--  What was proved at the New York trial -- and what wasn't?
--  What are the lessons for global litigation -- and litigation fraud?
--  How have the plaintiffs succeeded in exploiting the media?

Adetective story and courtroom drama, with a concluding chapter of
keen commentary, Crude Awakening is a behind-the-scenes look at the
world's biggest and messiest case. 
On their way to winning a $19 billion verdict against Chevron in
Ecuador, lawyers for the Amazonian plaintiffs invite a documentary
film crew to record their every move. Unfortunately, their every move
includes fraud. Chevron subpoenas the outtakes of the movie Crude,
and follows the clues from one improbable fraud to the next. In time,
the oil company turns the tables, and sues the plaintiffs for
racketeering. The drama culminates in a classic New York
"counter-trial," where it's the testimony of one corrupt ex-judge
against another. 
"Crude Awakening details Chevron's struggle to prove that the truth
is the truth - even when the truth is on the side of the big bad oil
company, and not on the side of the charismatic little guy fighting
for indigenous people of the Amazon rain forest," said Goldhaber.  
Crude Awakening will captivate both students of law and students of
human nature.
