By A Customer on 18 Sept. 1998
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Twenty years ago as a young lawyer I tried a case with one of my firms partners, who was in his eighties. He let me try the case, and we received a rather just decision from the court. I was quite proud of myself, only to learn from my boss that the senior partner felt that my style of cross examination was ineffective at best.
I determined to learn all I could about effective cross examination. The first book I read was also the last- Wellman's The Art of Cross Examination. Although the book was writen around the turn of the century, it contains a treasure trove of illustraions about different kinds of cross examination. How to Cross Examine the Hostile Witness, the Lying Witness , the scientific Witness, the Truthful Witness (the hardest job of all)
The book is a true today as it was 95 years ago.

I read this six months ago and don't remember the finer details of this book.

I'm a barrister. I got this book, eager to pick up skills on how to cross examine witnesses better, when in court.

I found the book was more or long/boring narrative of this particular mans great moments in court. He spends a while setting the context of the case, and then tells us how he caught his witness in a trap. The book does what it says - shows some cross examination techniques, but it seems to me that it could have done it in a more academic and accessible way.

This is not the sort of book which sets out in a structure way which is easily accessible at a moments notice, techniques of cross examination. If you had a particular case, and you were trying to think of ways to cross examine a witness, you couldn't dip into this book and find a suggestion. The tip you were looking for would be lost somewhere in the book's prose.

I recommend a book whose author I forget; "Cross Examination in Criminal Trials". It's about £30 brand new (not worth that much), but you can get the old edition cheaper or borrow it from the library.

It is not often such as honest description of what cross examination is about and how it is performed is given. I would particularly recommend this book to Medical Doctors who so often recently, end up in the witness box and quickly get 'torn apart' by Barristers after a few masterful strikes. This book is much more useful and fun to read when you compare it to the ones recommended by Medical Journals; these books usually tell you a few tips on how to dress up and prepare for the court but nothing substantive on the ‘insights’ of the process.

This review is for the product, not an endorsement of the sellers. As always, it is recommended to buy directly from Amazon for the best customer service and the peace of mind. If that were not possible, through Fulfilled by Amazon shall be the second choice. If both options were not possible, before purchase, check the buyers’ feedback to the seller you are thinking to buy the product from. We had a bad seller charging money and not sending the product. We hope all Amazon customers have happy, smooth and safe shopping experiences. That is why we always recommend buying directly from Amazon.
