This is probably the most entertaining (and at the same time practical) book that I have read on trial practice. I could not put this book down once I started reading it. I learned more advanced techniques in presentation than any other book I have read on the subject. Especially loved the parts on Opening Statements and Cross-examination (the Mark Lanier section on opening alone would be worth the cost of the book, but there is so much more). Maybe the best part of this book is that the author explores not only how these attorneys would present large interesting cases, but also asks the attorneys about skills that can be used in everyday smaller cases. Great Book, with no filler. You will not regret this purchase!
