Lawyers, Liars, and the Art of Storytelling: Using Stories to Advocate, Influence, and Persuade by Jonathan Shapiro

Jonathan Shapiro—a television writer (e.g., Goliath) and former federal prosecutor—in Lawyers, Liars, and the Art of Storytelling: Using Stories to Advocate, Influence, and Persuade shares his many war stories, using them to explain the elements of effective story telling: ethos, pathos, and logos. Shapiro beautifully demonstrates that Aristotle’s modes of persuasion remain the foundation for effective storytelling both in-and-out of the courtroom.
