Product description

From the Back Cover

-Spence has become the Socrates of Jackson Hole.-
-Larry McMurtry, author of Lonesome Dove

-Spence is one of America's last true originals-a man who thinks as brilliantly as he lives, who writes as compellingly as he talks, and who practices law as faithfully as most people practice religion.-
-Dan Rather

-How to Argue and Win Every Time is more than just a book about argument; it's the outline on how to live.-
-Larry King

-Spence's prose is pointedly sharp in essence and displays unself-consciously his own flamboyant personality. Rises above the herd in the conduct-of-life genre.-
-Booklist

A must read for many one who is involved in any type of court case especially employment tribunals or high court were showing respect to the judge (Ma Lord) is of paramount importance. Gerry uses many examples and is passionate about his work. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars I am glad I didn't judge the book by its title 25 April 2017
By M. J. Egan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
First, I was put off by the title of this book. I thought it might be more hot air from a sales guy with a few tricks up his sleeve. Worth ten to twenty minutes of flipping through chapter titles but not much else.

I am glad I didn't judge the book by its title. I could probably boil most of the message down to authenticity. Good speakers are authentic - they don't hide themselves or from themselves. This isn't so new (although a new context) but Spence does something interesting here while delivering the message of authenticity- he reminds you to speak to and connect with the power people, the decision makers. I would take a scared young woman trembling in fear but with true emotional connection in front of a jury than a slick prosecutor anytime, he tells us. He reminds us that law is an emotional discipline no matter how much we want to take emotion out of it. We lawyers are the chosen champions of a trial by contest. We stand the best chance of winning when we bring our feelings with us.

He reminds us that most of us decide with felling and bend our intellect to match it. If you know that, then you remember to connect first and foremost. And connection comes from authentic emotion. I'm glad I bought this book. I practice divorce law - an area many lawyers stay away from bc of the emotion in it, but that's a reason I love what I do (although stressful and exhausting as well).

5.0 out of 5 stars It's all about the humanity communicated in the story. 29 May 2013
By Reid Moore - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book should be required reading to graduate law school...perhaps in the final year, after you've had the humanity and compassion excised from your intellect. It reminded me that justice is not the result of brilliant analysis and cautious measurement in a sterile laboratory. It is about passion and compassion, courage overcoming fear, using professional skills, tactics, strategies and 'weapons' to protect the weak or less fortunate. Gerry Spence argues movingly -- as one might imagine he would -- for connection in a disconnected world. He pushes attorney readers to strive to connect with the jury, judge and even opposing counsel, with genuine emotion, conviction and hope. This book should guide you to winning far more cases.

5.0 out of 5 stars You will learn a lot about seeking justice. 17 July 2016
By Wayne A. Patterson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Gerry Spence is the kind of lawyer everyone wishes to represent them in court. He certainly could have saved my business when crooked bankers backed out on loan commitments and threw me to the wolves. I highly recommend this book to all who want to win their case, what ever it may be. I know you will learn a lot about seeking justice by getting the truth from witnesses and defeating the bullies using his methods of presenting your case. Tell your lawyer to read it!

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent book on persuasion and on always being better prepared ... 5 July 2016
By dmr - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
An excellent book on persuasion and on always being better prepared than the people you're arguing with.
The author shows that empathy in not an important part but the core and most fundamental basis for arguing for something. And also, I wouldn't want to be on the opposing side of a discussion with him... The narrative showcases several real and interesting court cases, mixed with the reasoning for how the defense/accusation would/should be prepared and enacted. The writing is very clear and lively, and the author tries to educate on an important lesson in each chapter.

Even though the context is the court, and legal scenarios, this book is very convincing, educational and entertaining. I would advise it to anyone.
