"Steven Lubet--lawyer, teacher, and raconteur--has written a great book. He makes us think about how we can use trials to advance justice--the most important of human pursuits."-Michael E. Tigar, Professor of Law and Edwin A. Mooers, Sr. Scholar in Law, American University, Washington College of Law
"Lubet's ability to downplay advocacy techniques while emphasizing the rich context of facts, story, and personalities is superb."-"Choice",
"Lubet has managed to spin an engaging tale that includes a Pope, gunslingers, and lawyers. Most of the time, the lawyers are actually the good guys. This book will serve those who already practice the law, plan to do so, watch Court TV, or like a story well told."-Christopher Harper, Roy H. Park Distinguished Chair, School of Communications, Ithaca College
"A delightful and insightful book [that] entertains as it instructs."-"ABA Journal",
"This excellent set of essays, both scholarly and imaginative, offers a rare bridge between the parallel universes of legal scholarship and courtroom practice. There is no better guide to the enterprise of storytelling in the law than Steve Lubet."-Marianne Wesson, Professor of Law, University of Chicago
