""A real eye-opener, not just for lawyers, but for anyone facing legal or regulatory issues. In crisply written, insightful, and often humorous chapters, Jim Haggerty shows how understanding audiences and communicating to them effectively can be as valuable to the outcome of a case as any legal strategy. In the Court of Public Opinion surely ranks among the best books on communication ever written. It should be required reading for anyone who is even thinking about talking with reporters about a legal matter. "" Alan Metrick, Director of Communications, Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) ""This is no stodgy legal treatise. Stylishly well-written and expertly argued, In the Court of Public Opinion is a brilliant mix of analysis and anecdote. Every lawyer who reads this book will become a better communicator, and clients and their publicists will gain real insight into areas where legal and public relations concerns meet. In a world of specialists, Jim Haggerty sees the whole playing field. No one has a better feel for lawyers, public opinion, and the press. In the Court of Public Opinion is an instant classic. I expect it will define the field for years to come. "" George P. Sape,
