With Point Made, legal writing expert Ross Guberman throws a life preserver to attorneys, who are under more pressure than ever to produce compelling prose. What is the strongest opening for a motion or brief? How to draft winning headings? How to tell a persuasive story when the record is dry and dense? The answers are ´´more science than art,´´ says Guberman, who has analyzed stellar arguments by distinguished attorneys to develop step-by-step instructions for achieving the results you want.The author takes an empirical approach, drawing heavily on the writings of the nation´s 50 most influential lawyers, including Barack Obama, John Roberts, Elena Kagan, Ted Olson, and David Boies. Their strategies, demystified and broken down into specific, learnable techniques, become a detailed writing guide full of practical models. In FCC v. Fox, for example, Kathleen Sullivan conjures the potentially dangerous, unintended consequences of finding for the other side (the ´´Why Should I Care?´´ technique). Arguing against allowing the FCC to continue fining broadcasters that let the ´´F-word´´ slip out, she highlights the chilling effect these fines have on America´s radio and TV stations, ´´discouraging live programming altogether, with attendant loss to valuable and vibrant programming that has long been part of American culture.´´Each chapter of Point Made focuses on a typically tough challenge, providing a strategic roadmap and practical tips along with annotated examples of how prominent attorneys have resolved that challenge in varied trial and appellate briefs. Short examples and explanations with engaging titles - ´´Brass Tacks´´, ´´Talk to Yourself´´, ´´Russian Doll´´ - deliver weighty materials with a light tone, making the guidelines easy to remember and apply.In addition to all-new examples from the original 50 advocates, this second edition introduces eight new superstar lawyers, from Solicitor General Don Verrilli, Deanne Ma 1.

America´s number one citizen Ralph Nader´s latest book tells us how unchecked corporate power has led to the wrecking ball that is the Trump presidency. Nader brings together the outrages of the Trump administration with the key flaws and failures of the previous administrations - both Republican and Democratic - that have led our nation to its current precipice.It´s all in the details, and Ralph Nader knows them all. Trump didn´t come out of nowhere. Bush and Obama led the way. Writing as a Washington, D.C., activist and people´s advocate for over 50 years - someone who has saved more lives and caused more impactful legislation to be enacted than almost any sitting president or legislator - Nader tells us how Trump´s crimes and misdemeanors followed the path of no resistance of the Obama, Bush, and Clinton regimes, which ushered in the extreme rise of corporate power and the abandonment of the poor and middle classes. 1.

A collection of essays celebrating the influential former first lady, by an array of acclaimed contributors and with a foreword by Lena Dunham Michelle Obama´s legacy transcends categorization. Mrs. Obama was not only our first black first lady; she was President Obama´s equal partner in marriage and parenthood and a tireless advocate for women´s rights, education, healthy eating, and exercise. Her genre-busting personal style encouraged others to speak, to engage, even to dress as they wished. In an extension of his popular T, The New York Times Style Magazine feature, Nick Haramis has assembled 19 essays from prizewinning writers, Hollywood stars, and political leaders - all of whom have been moved and influenced by Mrs. Obama´s extraordinary example of grace in power. Here are original testimonials from Gloria Steinem, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Alice Waters, and Charlamagne tha God, among others. Presidential biographer Jon Meacham supplies historical perspective. Actress Tracee Ellis Ross suggests that Mrs. Obama ´´provided an antidote to all the false representations of black women that have inundated us for centuries.´´ Anna Wintour and designer Jason Wu celebrate the former first lady´s impact as an international fashion icon. Two ninth-grade girls - one in training to be a boxer - talk about how Mrs. Obama has emboldened them to be themselves. Here are some of the many facets of Michelle Obama as she continues to inspire us, a stirring reminder that the best of America once lived in the White House, embodied in one authentic, inclusive, and courageous woman. Read by the authors and a full cast of narrators: Lena Dunham Nick Haramis Alice Waters Janet Mock Issa Rae Charlamagne tha God Gloria Steinem Patton Oswalt Rashida Jones Jon Meacham Gabourey Sidibe Adasend 1.
