“It was a pleasure reading Jury Selection Handbook by Professor Clark and Mr. O'Toole. To begin with, it is a thorough treatment of the subject. The 14 substantive chapters touch on virtually every facet of the jury selection process. . . . In addition, the text goes far beyond the rudiments and exposes the reader to advanced techniques. . . . I found it to be at once comprehensive, sophisticated, and practical. . . . this is the single best short volume that I have read on jury selection. It would be a valuable addition to the library of any law student interested in litigation, a neophyte trial attorney, or even a counsel with a middling level of experience.” — Edward J. Imwinkelried, Professor of Law Emeritus, UC Davis School of Law
“Living up to its “handbook” label, the text aims toward comprehensive coverage of the process and providing both a legal and practical foundation. . . . Throughout, the authors call out good advice in clear and simple terms. . . . Perhaps the area where the book most differentiates itself is through the use of constant examples and in providing a wealth of additional information for use in classrooms and continuing legal education programs. . . . the book provides a foundation grounded in practice, but points toward the importance of some more advanced questions.” — Dr. Ken Broda-Bahm, Persuasive Litigator
