BOOKS BY JAMES W. POTTS
WALKING ON EGGSHELLS
At a time when arguing about the benefits of seeking out talent without regard to color and other ethnic issues has long gone out fashion, it is easy to believe that all is well in the corporate world.
For most well-advised companies, that is just about the case. This, however, can hardly be said of others who find out too late that hiring personnel of diverse cultural backgrounds can be as pretty as stepping on a sea of minefields. Enter Walking on Eggshells by James William Potts, which seeks to assist managers and supervisors on how to manage minorities. This book helps them realize dealing with the task is not as difficult as they may think. For these managers and supervisors, giving careful consideration of the guidelines in the book will help them reduce potential lawsuits.
RIGHT TO COUNSEL
In the late 1970s, a crime wave swept California. Several young girls were kidnapped, brutally raped, and murdered. Michael Dee Mattson, a drug addict with severe emotional problems, was convicted of these crimes and sentenced to be executed in California's gas chamber. James Potts, an aspiring young attorney still coming to terms with the rape of his own younger sister, is asked to find a way to get Mattson's conviction overturned.
After making a discovery that could potentially set Mattson free to rape and kill again, Potts struggles with his own moral dilemma: Use this information to free Mattson or let him languish on death row.
