The Fearless Cross-Examiner
The Fearless Cross-Examiner : Win the Witness, Win the Case, by Patrick Malone. The current approach to cross-examination is dated, and in this book, Malone systematically demolishes these tired and restrictive ideas in favor of a more adaptable and effective approach. (Read a chapter from The Fearless Cross-Examiner here.) Patrick Malone’s latest book, The Fearless Cross-Examiner, has been praised by top trial lawyers as the new Bible of how to do effective cross-examination. Former American Association for Justice (AAJ) president Roxanne Conlin says it’s “destined to become a classic.” Mark Mandell, another former president of AAJ, calls Malone’s book “the finest book on cross-examination I have ever read.” Baltimore, Maryland Circuit Court Judge Marcus Z. Shar says: “brilliant, genuinely insightful, and thought provoking.” More reviews can be found on the publisher’s web site.
