"Sonya Hamlin's latest work on jury performance and success is a must read for any lawyer, plaintiff or defense, who intends to be trying cases in the 21st Century. I've been trying cases to juries for over 30 years and have studied the work of Sonya Hamlin that entire time. This is her best material yet! Her insights about witness preparation, order of proof, exhibit creation, graphics, expert witness testimony, use of computer animations, opening statements and closing arguments-the whole deal-reflect a mastery and understanding of persuasion dynamics that can't be found elsewhere! Just awesome, - couldn't put it down!"
