Review
“In his new book The Tools of Argument: How the Best Lawyers Think, Argue, and Win, Professor Joel Trachtman lays out the many intricacies related to how lawyers frame arguments. It is a masterly treatment of a complex and compelling set of issues. There is much to learn here, both for the experienced practitioner and for the novice to the field.” — James R. Silkenat, President, American Bar Association (2012-13) and Partner, Sullivan & Worcester

“Professor Trachtman’s book is required reading for lawyers, those who hire or work with lawyers, anyone interested in understanding the dynamics of legal negotiations or of political debate, and anyone interested in winning arguments. Its unique and practical approach strips away jargon to isolate the core elements of legal reasoning and argumentation in a way that is accessible and applicable in everyday situations. Non-lawyers will find it a useful guide to effective persuasion.” — John A. Burgess, Partner, WilmerHale

“The Tools of Argument leads one through all aspects of reasoned argumentation. Upon completion, one is capable of understanding the techniques utilized by advocates to advance their positions. Indispensable for anyone who is involved with any business negotiation – which means anyone!” — Edward P. Gilbert, Managing Director, BNY Mellon Bank, Tokyo
