Product description


Jonathan Shapiro is a terrific writer: incisive, informative, entertaining, and always engaging.--Erwin Chemerinsky, U.S. constitutional law and federal civil procedure scholar and current and founding dean of the University of California, Irvine School of Law

Jonathan Shapiro's Lawyers, Liars, and the Art of Storytelling is so intriguing and witty that for a while I was certain that I had written it.--Alan Zweibel, Original Saturday Night Live writer and Thurber Prize winner for his novel The Other Shulman

Nobody I know--and I mean nobody--is funnier, smarter, or has a wider breadth of references than my friend Jonathan Shapiro. This book is a bit of a miracle: informative, insightful, poetic, and funny.--Paul Reiser, Comedian, actor, and bestselling author

Storytelling--the art of connecting with, captivating and persuading one's listeners--is the key to courtroom success. For the new generation of lawyers raised on texting, tweeting, and e-mailing, the art of old-fashioned storytelling has proven elusive, as those who can truly teach this ancient art form are fast disappearing. Thankfully, here comes Jonathan Shapiro--one of America's greatest trial lawyers and storytellers--to the rescue.--Steve Zipperstein, General Counsel, Blackberry

If Shapiro turns out to be the 21st-century Dale Carnegie, that wouldn't be a bad thing. His book deserves to sell as well as How to Win Friends and Influence People. It is fortified with the wisdom of the ages and of the networks...May it please the court, Shapiro's book is a must read.
