Today’s successful business people need to be proficient in many skills above and beyond core industry knowledge or functional expertise. You need to manage people, negotiate a deal, create Excel spreadsheets, and ‘tweet’ with the best of them! And you also need to be able to argue a position by utilizing skills of reasoned persuasion.
The Tools of Argument: How the Best Lawyers Think, Argue, and Win teaches critical skills of discourse and debate in a practical, accessible way. Grounded in the legal system, it gives you methods of argument that your colleagues and competitors lack. It covers core legal principles that will help you write, assess, and defend contracts with suppliers, customers, or employees. It will also help you to work effectively with any lawyers you hire, and to contend effectively with those on the opposing side.
