Posted by Alex Miller on Nov 19, 2008
Trial Guides is proud to announce Eric Oliver's Facts Can't Speak for Themselves on Audiobook. This audiobook is an unabridged reading of the book by Eric Oliver himself. This is a 16 CD set.
About the audiobook:
Legal decision-makers construct their own version of the case story when they judge a case. In fact, they re-author their own version several times before arriving at the one they use to decide the case. These individual stories influence the verdict as much as the decision-maker's backgrounds and beliefs, or the attorney's presentation in court. This groundbreaking audiobook offers straightforward steps for trial professionals. Learn to identify and use these stories in order to refine the most compelling presentation for your listeners to judge.
This book teaches you:
- How and why legal decision-makers construct their own case stories and use them to decide a case.
- The importance of crafting and communicating a case to decision-makers as a story, and why it can be the most direct and influential way to address decision-makers.
- Which focus groups best reveal the range of story versions which listeners can build from your case.
- How to run voir dire like focus groups and focus groups like voir dire.
- Why you should never ask focus group members which side in a case they like.
- Why you should think twice before ever again asking a "why" question in voir dire or focus groups.
- How to take full advantage of the only four channels available to deliver any legal case.
This audiobook title is part of the iWin™ series of educational media by Trial Guides™.
Reviews for the book:
"After thirty-three years in the courtroom and a few hundred jury trials, what's new and worth studying? The short answer is Eric Oliver's book Facts Can't Speak for Themselves. Read this book, and new explanations for your old losses creep into view. Taking advantage of Erik's insights requires thoughtful reading and some reflective quiet time. It's nice to be a fifty-seven-year-old-freshman, newer and better... "
—William Barton, author of Recovering for Psychological Injuries
"Eric Oliver reminds us that the side with the best story wins the case, and carries it one step further: it takes twelve stories to win. The trial lawyer is not presenting the case to an audience of twelve, but rather to twelve audiences."
—Jim M. Perdue, Perdue and Kidd, LLP, Houston, Texas
" This book contains powerful tools that will profoundly enhance a lawyer's most important skills: talking, and really listening, to juries. This may be the most important book a lawyer will ever read."
—Keith Hebiesen, Clifford Law Offices, Chicago, IL
