Meat-and-potatoes how-to manual on appellate brief-writing ---with insights.

This is "must read" for everyone, Attorney or Pro Se litigant, involved in the appeals process. All are involved in the "machine" that is the court system sooner or later. Like movies that are filmed from end to beginning, I think one should learn litigation from appeal to the complaint!

JudgevRuggero does a good job condensing a tough body of material to learn. His many years of distinguished service on the beach add credibility and realism to his thought. I enjoyed it and learned from it.

If you're going to be writing appellate briefs, this is the book. I used this in my app ad class and it has some great info in it. I will be keeping this on my bookshelf.

This book was recommended by a federal appellate judge for brief writing. It is just the best primer for either writing a brief or preparing for oral argument. I will use it time and again as a reference work.
Voodoozragore
Great book with all you need to write a winning brief.
Nettale
Excellent book, well written.
This book lacks actual appellate writings. Just summaries of what belongs in writings, the supposed tips seem geared to people who have never written before. Look elsewhere for legal writing.
