Livening up legal writing

Looking for a way to liven up legal writing? Check Arthur Plotnik’s Spunk & Bite, his answer to theSpunk - Bite tamer guide by Strunk and White. Plotnik argues that writing needs flair to attract and hold readers, and he offers lots of examples to illustrate his point. The book is written for a general audience, and some of its advice is too edgy for legal writing. But Spunk & Bite is a good prod toward crisper writing.
