Get the Power - Learn to Argue Like a Professional Lawyer

Power. Lawyers have it. Why? Because they know how to argue. Unless you've been living on another planet, you know that conflict is the hallmark of our time. Wherever you look, in every nook and cranny of society, disputes flourish like mushrooms in a rain forest.

Think of your own life. No doubt you've been involved in a dispute with someone over something that was important to you. Perhaps you've even hired a lawyer to argue on your behalf. But the simple truth is that most of us can't afford a lawyer if we're involved in a minor dispute. Your neighbor blocks your driveway with his car. Your HMO unfairly denies your claim. Your car mechanic made promises that he didn't keep.

You'd like to do something, but you don't know how to put your argument on paper. Sure, you learned to write essays and book reports and papers in school. But no one ever taught you how to argue.

You don't need three years of law school, thousands of dollars in student loans, or a three-day bar exam to make a persuasive argument. In The Art of Argument (also available in Spanish), seasoned attorneys Gary Fidel and Linda Cantoni show you step-by-step how to do it and do it well. In easy-to-follow rules, they show you how to organize your thoughts before you express them. Then they show you how to lay out your grievance in the form of a simple and direct argument. There's no guarantee that you'll win every time, but you'll certainly give your opponents a run for their money every time, and help yourself avoid unnecessary (and unaffordable) litigation.
