The Laws of Arguing According to Gerry Spence

1. Everyone is capable of making the winning argument.
2. Winning is getting what we want, which also means helping "others" get what they want.
3. Learn that words are a weapon, and can be used hostilely in combat.
4. Know that there is always a "biological advantage" of delivering the TRUTH.
5. Assault is not argument.
6. Use fear as an ally in pubic speaking or in argument. Learn to convert its energy.
7. Let emotions show and don't discourage passion.
8. Don't be blinded by brilliance.
9. Learn to speak with the body. The body sometimes speaks more powerfully than words.
10. Know that the enemy is not the person with whom we are engaged in a failing argument, but the vision within ourselves.

Ohmigosh - I am shocked to see that this book was never journalled. Blush blush and cringing apologies.

I assumed I had journalled it when it arrived. Then about every six months, I wonder whether it's time to admit that I am never going to get this book read. I pick it up to make a journal entry, and instead read the back cover and think, "Maybe I should give it another chance." And so I don't journal it but move it to another TBR pile.

Today's the day I decided to give up altogether and put it into a box to be distributed at the All-Finland bookcrossing meeting this summer. I came to say so... and bookcrossing says this book is still in the wild. I am so embarrassed and sorry.

This seems like a book that should be worth reading. But it's just a little too dense, and a little too 'out there' ("Know that the enemy is... the vision within ourselves"). I find it too off-putting.
