First published in 1903, this book is a compulsively readable theory of cross-examination, enriched with entertaining and enlightening examples drawn from Wellman's own practice and those from the infamous cases of the day. As Professor Michael E. Tigar says in his new foreword to the book. Until I reread this book, I had not realized how much I had gained from studying Wellman's approach. I think you will find this book worthy of your time.

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.
