This is truly an anatomy and dissection of cross-examination. It points out the obvious as well as the well-kept secrets and principles - especially those we know and don't follow. It has hammered the nail in the coffin on those for me! Just reading this book puts cross-examination into greater perspective. Putting it into use is a whole other ball game.

Let me start by saying this should be a just read book for all trial attorneys. It is a bit heavy on criminal jury trials, but the points still apply to bench trials and administrative hearings with equal force. Unfortunately, the many fine points, tips, and techniques outlined in this book were undermined before the reader by the quagmire of grammatical, typographical, and formatting errors. The author would have been well served to hire a much better editor before publishing this volume. Couple that with the fact that many of the examples were far too outdated to be useful to the modern reader. I gave this book five stars for content, but only two for format, and two for relatability. Hopefully the author will consider releasing a new edition with these flaws addressed and fixed.

This book locates itself somewhere in between Francis L. Wellman's and Larry S. Pozner's books in the broader spectrum of useful learning materials that treat cross-examination as an art, by Wellman, and as a science, by Pozner. For the price alone, this book is a bargain. But if one is serious in "learning" the subject, Pozner's book is the way to go.

Next time Davies revises this book, he should have it professionally edited before sending it to the printer. I have never seen a very good book (in fact, this book is so rich in substance) littered with so many typos and grammatical errors. It would be nice if a reader, who has not yet picked up this book, notes down all errors when eventually going through the book the first time, and sends the errata to the author for future publication purposes.

Excellent book! This is truly an anatomy and dissection of cross-examination. It points out the obvious as well as the well-kept secrets and principles - especially those we know and don't follow. It has hammered the nail in the coffin on those for me!

Just reading this book puts cross-examination into greater perspective. Putting it into use is a whole other ball game.

I have one suggestion for the writer though. More examples of the different principles in action would make this a 5/5! Not everyone can contextualize these concepts, and for some it takes undue time.

So, examples for the next edition!

But, this is an overall great spend!

Easy to read and to understand, Davies divides his subject in some 67 different principles. The principles' themes range from the proper way to structure a question, to understanding perception and memory in testimony. Davies' bibliography is extensive, which shows that he not only draws from his own experience, but also from the experience of many other experts in litigation and cross examination. I read this book for the first time some eight years ago, and I am reading it again, for it is one of the best books, if not the best book, on the subject. Francis Wellman's Art of Cross Examination is another good buy, though not as good. Much more expensive, but also excellent, and with a different emphasis, is Roger Dodd's and Larry Pozner's book on cross examination. Davies' book is a tremendous contribution to the Bar.

You would think the grammar, spelling, and punctuation would be correct coming from the author who is also an attorney. Good information but it reads as though it was on his weekend "To Do" list.

Davis sets forth a series of maxims of cross examination, followed by an exposition on that maxim and (sometimes) a transcript of a cross that exemplifies the maxim. The cross exams are varied. Davies even includes the Prophet Daniel's legendary cross examination of the Elders from the Apocryphal book of Susanna. The maxims are loosely classified under general headings, and the whole work is begun with a 40 some-odd page table of contents. The table gives each maxim in full and then gives an abstract of the exposition which follows. You get the gist of the bood reading just the table of contents.

The best thing about this book is the price. There are better modern expositions of cross examination available, but their prices will run to approximately four times the price of this book.

My biggest disappointment with the book is its narrowness. Davies' first principle states that the purpose of cross examination is to cast doubt on the other side's presentation. That is one of many different objectives you can achieve on cross examination and sometimes it is not even the most important objective you can achieve on cross examination. The over-arching objective of cross examination is to persuade the factfinder that your cause is just and that your side should prevail.
The book is very thorough with a lot of insights into preparing for and conducting a good cross examination. I found a lot of useful information that will hopefully make my own cross examinations more meaningful and helpful to my cases. The text had a lot of typos that hopefully will be corrected by the third edition. The seller got the book to me very quickly and in excellent condition. I got standard business shipping yet still received the book within about a week of ordering.
