Informative and entertaining at the same time

As a layperson who has (mostly successfully) defended himself in court appearances multiple times for minor traffic offences I found Mr Gowdy's revelations and experiences to be very insightful and inspiring.
Through my personal sojourns into the 'shearing sheds' of the magistrate's courts down here in Australia I learnt to never make claims, or if needing to do so, form them into questions whenever possible. Gowdy goes much deeper into the 'whys' of this tactic and backs them up with very informative examples and different techniques of questioning.
I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in not only law and politics but also those interested in learning how to persuade those around them in non-belligerent ways and trigger contemplation rather than conflict... be it family, friends, work colleagues or social media 'antagonists'.
