Quotes & Awards

  • “Legal scholar Fish provides a practical, thought-provoking guide to improving argument skills…An important book for any lawyer, scholar, or pundit—not to mention any spouse who has tried to walk back fractious words—Fish’s shrewd work can help everyone better understand the power of effective communication in everyday life.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Not a guide to coming out on top in a squabble but an exploration of the strategies that succeed in personal, political, and professional domains…This timely publication that coincides with the upcoming presidential election will attract Fish’s already established audience; newcomers to the author should find this latest work simultaneously challenging and accessible.”

    Library Journal

  • “The points [Fish] presents are philosophical, metaphysical, even ontological…The book is not so much about winning arguments as it is about better arguments, ones that elevate the discourse toward a mutual discovery of truth (whatever that is) rather than scoring points toward partisan goals…Fish presents a compelling argument about the necessity of argument.”
