    'The virtues of the book are its clarity and simplicity. … The book is a straightforward first introduction to advocacy, and it fulfils its function very well. It provides a firm foundation and explanation of basic techniques and practical common sense from which the young advocate will be able to build and add nuance and shape from his or her own experience.' The Cambridge Law Journal
