Classic Essays on Legal Advocacy

I recall pretty vividly a few times in my life when an unexpected gift arrived in the mail, because they were such pleasant surprises.  Receiving a comp copy of a law book in the office mail usually does not rank up there with those gifts, but today it did.  Out of the blue, I received Classic Essays on Legal Advocacy, a book first published 50 years ago under a different name, and now re-issued by Scribes.  There is some anachronistic charm and a lot of good advice for legal advocates in the book, including tips on written advocacy.  My only complaint is that it arrived when I am in the middle of grading 1L memos and so have to put off reading it cover-to-cover.
