No one can tell you how to be a great trial lawyer. So Shane Read shows you how the greats do it. His examples illustrate an overlooked point--that many trials are not won as wars of attrition but rather by winning one critical battle. His examples show how one critical exchange at trial not only shores up your credibility but also reframes the rest of the case around your narrative.
On top of that, let's face it: great trial stories are extremely entertaining. So expect to finish the book entertained by the great stories and armed with a better sense for creating great moments at trial.
