Let me first say that I am a law school student, who was in the process of trying out for my school's mock trial team when I purchased this book. After read it, my cross examinations went from a measly 3-4 (in a scale from 1-10) to a solid 8-9. This book is the reason why I made the team. It contains the unofficial cardinal rules of cross examination that every effect cross examiner must know. The examples drive the point home perfectly. There is a wealth of knowledge in it, especially for the beginner. The casual reader may find it to be drawn out and, at times, boring. However, the aspiring attorney will gain real-life experience by reading the experiences of others contained in this masterpiece. A 'must have' in that regard.
