I wanted to share Munish Bharti’s kind review of Cross-Examination Handbook. It reads as follows:

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential Companion to Enduring Cross-examination Texts

Cross-examination has been described as “the greatest legal engine ever invented for the discovery of truth.” JOHN H. WIGMORE, 5 WIGMORE, EVIDENCE §1367, at 32 (Chadbourn rev. 1974). Yet, according to authors Clark, Dekle, Sr., and Bailey, “[t]oo few trial lawyers are good at cross-examination.”

Readers rejoice: this book provides the building blocks for preparing and conducting winning cross-examinations. This book explains the concession-seeking cross, basic impeachment concepts, and how to use visuals and exercise control over the recalcitrant, unruly witness.

This book is an essential companion to:

(1) LARRY POZNER AND ROGER J. DODD, CROSS-EXAMINATION: SCIENCE AND TECHNIQUES (LexisNexis 2d ed. 2004);

(2) FRANCIS L. WELLMAN, THE ART OF CROSS-EXAMINATION (Macmillan Co. 4th ed. 1936); and

(3) JAMES H. MCCOMAS, DYNAMIC CROSS-EXAMINATION: A WHOLE NEW WAY TO CREATE OPPORTUNITIES TO WIN (Trial Guides 2011).
