      "Win Your Case"

      I have been a prosecutor for the last 7 years in the SF Bay Area, and Gerry Spence in "How to Win Your Case" has given me even more confidence in trying my cases through his methods of persuasion. At the start, it comes out elementary, but as it progresses the book literally gives you power to make an argument for what you believe in. And everything he talks about can be applied to any situation you may find yourself having to argue an idea or a case to another person or group of persons. He keeps it simple and commonsensical. I play it in my car while going to my next day of trial. Each time you listen, you come up with new ideas on how you tailor your arguments through your own life experiences.

      "Dry then Wet"

      The beginning talks a lot about who you are and getting to know your inner voice... I almost thought it was a self help book for a little bit.

      Then it picked up drastically by dealing with situations a trial lawyer will encounter, such as: empathizng with the client, appearing as a truly honest person, and other entities to sway the jury. He hits on many key points that seem obvious but truly aren't.

      As a future lawyer I found many key points that were not explicit in most legal books. There are no break throughs but this is definitely a solid read and gives you something more to measure a yourself and a lawyer by.

      "Spence Rocks."

      What a fantastic book for lawyers and nonlawyers alike! This guy has forgotten more than we'll ever know about trying a case. Brilliantly written and read by the author himself. It doesn't get any better.

      "Gerry never disappoints"

      The only thing wanting for this book is that it could be longer. I love learning from Mr. Spence - he is a national treasure.

      "The recipe for magic!"

      Mr. Spence is not a professor--he is a practitioner. This is an intimate journey through each part of a trial--guided by a master who opens the door into his heart where the reader finds the source of his genius. Spence wins because he cares and he listens and he reflects. He is honest and he is a pioneer. If only we could all be so good.

      READ THIS BOOK TODAY IF YOU WANT TO BECOME AN INFLUENTIAL PERSON. MUST READ FOR ALL PRESENTERS, SPEAKERS, ETC. THIS BOOK WAS A LIFE-CHANGING EXPERIENCE FOR ME. VERY QUICK READ IF YOU SET YOUR DEVICE TO 3X SPEED. (You may need to slowly increase the speed so that your brain can , or have some coffee before listening!)

      "Love it"
      If you could sum up Win Your Case in three words, what would they be?

      I wish I can buy all the books from Gerry Spence. I've read him since high-school. Everything I know in life is from reading his books.

      "Useful Thoughts from a Master Trial Lawyer"

      I'm not sure that this book would be particularly meaningful to non-lawyers. It does, however, contain some interesting insights into trial practice, particularly his discussion about cross examination techniques. Those thoughts could have been expressed in half of its 4 plus hour length. If a voice alone can be called charismatic, Spence's voice qualifies.
