The following is from an interview of Trial Guides author Patrick Malone on his new book The Fearless Cross Examiner: Win the Witness, Win the Case.
Trial Guides: What made you want to write a book on cross examination?
Patrick Malone: What made me want to write a book for lawyers on cross examination is that the way I grew up learning how to do cross examination never worked for me. It was frustrating.

A holiday message from David Ball to my friends!
"Pat Malone has written a book that everyone, not just attorneys but everyone, needs to read. It is called The Life You Save: Nine Steps to Finding the Best Medical Care and Avoiding the Worst. The title is no exaggeration.
I'm telling you about this book for two reasons: First, I want anyone important to me to have read this book. I'm no great fan of self-help books, but this is a self protection book, and it's essential. If you have children it is more than essential.
The Today Show appearance will mark the release of Mr. Malone's newest book, The Life You Save, aimed at preventing medical malpractice for members of the public. The book lists nine necessary steps that will help you take charge of your own health care, make the best choices, avoid serious harm, and get the care you need and deserve. The Life You Save is not only for you and your loved ones, it is a must read for every person who receives medical care or uses prescription pharmaceuticals.
