This book was very helpful. I think that the chapters are written well so that if you need to concentrate on a specific aspect of a deposition, the chapter will give you insight without leaving you at a loss if you did not read the whole book from cover to cover. It also provides very good opening and closing paragraphs so that you understand what are the key takeaways.

The frequent examples in the book are used over and over. So, when speaking about how to get past a difficult deponent/witness, they will use the same car accident facts, or another scene fact scenario. This is helpful because you get to see the differences between techniques, but it is also a little difficult if you need help deposing a witness with a different set of facts. Some more fact diversity would have been helpful.

The quality of the book is nice, it is not flimsy for a softcover where you feel like the pages will bend. It is a wholesome sized book, while easy to hold.

The best way to learn how to depose someone is to attend several real depositions conducted by different attorneys. Then jump in and start asking questions as soon as someone will let you take your own depos. There's no secret to it. Much harder is knowing how to effectively prepare a witness and knowing the consequences particular depo issues could have down the road at trial or before a judge. This book covers just about every topic you need to know about before you begin taking or defending depos. It also covers various techniques and strategies for interrogating a witness.

The chapters are fairly self-contained, making it very handy as a reference and a topic primer. The writing is straightforward and focused on practical concerns, rather than presenting academic exercises. I highly recommend this book to new (and not so new) attorneys who have taken or defended fewer than a couple dozen depos.

I am so glad I bought this book. Not only is it helpful in preparing my client for deposition, it also has a lot of good information to help with strategizing the deposition portion of discovery. This book is an invaluable resource for the small amount of money I invested to get it and I will recommend it highly to other practitioners.
