Jones has done a great job of pointing young lawyers who want to be trial attorneys in the right direction. There are very few books that attempt the subject in modern terms. The jury has changed in the last 20 years and the system has not kept up. I have not found any books that discuss the changes (let alone very many attorneys that understand this). The problem with such a book is that so much of trial is art rather than science. What works for one lawyer might well fall flat for some else. Local rules and norms also will limit the book's help. What works well for someone in Texas could fall flat for the same person in New York. Nonetheless, this book does offer real life insights to the art of trial.
