It doesn't get much better than this. Wayne Schiess is one of the foremost legal writing experts out there, and his book is a "must have" for anyone who is serious about improving their legal writing. The book is a no-frills look at what professional, polished legal writing should look like and what is expected of practictioners in this ever-evolving field. This book is an invaluable resource and deserves a spot on your bookshelf right next to Bryan Garner's, "A Dictionary of Modern Legal Usage."

Certainly I give this book five stars. I know the book, having read it before and after publication. And I know the author, a brilliant man who is my son. So, if the fact of our blood relationship renders this review not useful, I'm sorry. It's a really good book, full of good ideas for legal writers. The writing in it is, as one would hope, clear and direct. No way to misunderstand. What's more, it's full of wit and humor.
And I have a personally signed copy. Isn't that nice.
