Advocacy Words

I just received a copy of “Advocacy Words: A  Thesaurus” (expanded 2d ed.) by William Drennan, published by the ABA General Practice, Solo & Small firm Division.  This clever book lists “favorable words” and next to them, lists “critical words.” It also lists “critical words” and next to them, lists “favorable words. Some random examples: 

Favorable: Brave                      Critical: foolhardy 

Favorable: assortment          Critical: concoction 

Favorable: inexact term        Critical: lie 

189 pages, at the unfortunate ABA price of $29.95. Look for it in your library.
