A "must read" for lawyers...an "ought to read" for everyone else. - 1 of 1 people found the following review helpful.A "must read" for lawyers...an "ought to read" for everyone else. By Lance D. Hamner This book had to be written. John Bobo did it. Now it must be read.I was a deputy prosecutor and prosecutor for 20 years. I wish I had had this outstanding guide to help me learn in a few days what took me years to figure out.Decades of experience, wisdom, guidance, tactics, and tips are packed into a little book that could be read in a few hours.But don't read it that way. This little gem must be consumed slowly and savored. Whether you're a young prosecutor or an old one, be sure to open this book with a highlighter in your hand and a pen behind your ear. Then read, mark, and make notes. You will be better at your job after each chapter.If you're seasoned, make the baby lawyers read it. You owe it to the young to get them started right. If you're new at the job, share this book with your colleagues.What about you defense attorneys...do you need to read it? Absolutely. It has stuff for everyone. You'll see what I mean.
Lots of Good Advice - 0 of 0 people found the following review helpful.Lots of Good Advice By J. Yeagley I bought this for my daughter, but I read it and think it would be helpful. While reading it I kept coming upon things that I had already heard her talk about, so I know that his advice is useful to any new prosecutor. It was actually a fun read. Gave me some insight into the world of a prosecuting attorney. I hope she reads it, too.
The best collection of advice for a newbie prosecutor ever - 3 of 3 people found the following review helpful.The best collection of advice for a newbie prosecutor ever By LegalWriter I have been a prosecutor for over three decades now, more than half my life. I tell folks that when it comes to being a prosecutor, I've seen it all, done most. The author has too. And now he shares what he learned from those experiences with budding prosecutors. This isn't a traditional "how to" trial advocacy book; it's more of a "how-to-survive" book. Each chapter contains sage wisdom from years of experience. There was little that I didn't already know or had figured out on my own. I found myself nodding with approval throughout and wishing that I'd had this book when I first set foot in a courtroom in July 1984. Bobo speaks candidly on subjects such as dealing with judges, cops, victims, and reporters and prosecutor burn-out. He's a terrific, engaging writer. It's like sitting with a drink in a bar, listening to someone who's been there. In today's climate, where prosecutors are constantly under attack and often unfairly maligned, it's refreshing to read a work dedicated to upholding this noblest practice of law. This should be required reading for every new prosecutor.
