This book speaks to the individual lawyer about his or her own practice. It is a self-confession by a leading trial lawyer of his own defalcations: of his own lies, of his own standing by as a more senior member of his law firm deliberately destroyed evidence, of his own giving a convincing argument to a court on a motion when all that he really wanted to do was delay. The stories are intriguing and captivating.
