Tigar draws compelling parallels between being a successful trial lawyer and living a purposeful life. The book examines the nine principles in detail: Courage; Rapport; Skepticism; Observation; Preparation; Structure; Candor; Empowerment; and Presentation. Unique and introspective, Tigar examines legal history and his own experiences to craft a message for all trial lawyers about the importance of their work and the principles that shape their lives.
