   Good Book
I am no lawyer, but this gave me some perspective on what they do, and in general, helps develop persuasive argument and encourages you to pursue knowledge, writing, reading, vocabulary and speech skills to become more persuasive.
   Great Book!
If you're like me, reading opinions and dissents by Scalia is sometimes tedious. So, I was pleasantly surprised at what an interesting read this is. It is required reading for my Appellate Advocacy class, but I recommend it to any student of law, especially 1Ls. I wish I had this for my first year of trial for my short assignment.
   Who Knew Scalia Wasn't Useless???!
As my title would indicate, I am not a Scalia fan. But this book is well crafted, thoughtful, insightful and provides practical advice on how to present arguments to the court. Broken into tips that are 1-2 pages long, it makes for an easy reference guide.
   Great read
But it is geared towards practicing lawyers and not law students. Still, I am glad I read it as 1L and I look forward to reading it again in a few years. The contrast between Garner and Scalia is also very amusing.
   A must have for ANY law student or litigation lawyer
It is a book by Bryan Garner and written by Justice Antonin Scalia. Two of the most prolific legal writers in the 20th and 21st centuries should be enough alone to get you to pick it up. Leaving aside political ideology, Judge Scalia was brilliant and his opinions were extremely well written. His advice on the best way to create a judge and convince a solid argument is invaluable. It is very breezy and easy to read and very useful. Even if you don 't write letters for a living, this is a fascinating book. I have recommended it highly ; this book is a must have.
   Comprehensive book, with good advice
I wish I had this when I was pursuing jury cases. I am going to give it to another and younger attorney who can use it as he tries cases. I helped him get started and this book will be a continuing education for him. I feel that we can always use information from people of success, like the author.
   Effective Fundamental Concepts
After several court battles, I have circled back to the basics of effective advocacy. I was going to say that I wish I had read it earlier in my career, but I am not sure if I would have appreciated its value without first experiencing the challenges of multiple trials, motions and hearings before a judge.
   Decent advice, much of it already widely available.
And not nearly as tiresome, given the identities of the authors. Their musings on case law and advocacy are typically funny, occasionally legal, and they make a genuine effort to address the many possible permutations of court practices in state and federal court, and appellate courts. Suitable for a young attorney who is just starting out and doesn't have any other source of mentorship, but most others can probably skip this one and save their money on something more useful.
   that would be fantastic!
If we can find some judges who don 't put their personal politics and agenda aside to clear their docket before the actual legal arguments of the Counsel... that would be fantastic!
