In From Wig and Pen to Computer the author made brief references to his practice and wrote about his experience as a writer of articles and books on legal and allied topics. In the present book, The Man who Shot the President and other Lawyers he gives an amusing account of some of his more entertaining and interesting cases while at the Bar and on the Bench, coupled with revealing stories about some of his contemporaries in the law.

It is likely to prove an acceptable gift for law students, lawyers and laymen alike. Sir Mark Potter, in his Foreword, comments: ‘This book is a treasure house of anecdote and reminiscence.’ He goes on to describe it as ‘a fascinating patchwork assembled from the varied fabric of a career at the Bar of a kind which has all but disappeared in the age of increased specialisation, followed by 22 years as a humane and humorous Circuit Judge before whom advocates and litigants alike were treated with fairness, courtesy and consideration
