“This book is a good idea…What I like is there will be one idea every day – and only one. Your mind will not get jumbled. Think on what you read…. Some ideas you will like. Others may not work for you. With advocacy, this is always the way. But the point is to try things out – one day at a time.”
Iain Morley QC, author of The Devil’s Advocate, from the Foreword to 365 Daily Advocacy Tips
