The Deposition Handbook: A Guide To Help You Give A Winning Deposition helps deposition witnesses--and even attorneys--get through the deposition process easily and knowledgeably. It gives relevant information in plain English, points out pitfalls, and helps the reader feel empowered! Its concise format makes it handy to use, and its index makes it easy to find specific topics. It separates itself from other books on depositions by going beyond schooling its readers about the law--because, additionally, it gives them inside information about the procedure itself and then shows them how to function in an effective, informed, and confident way. In essence, it tells them what they need to know to help them triump in their lawsuits!

Page 7 - It appears to me that in Ethics, as in all other philosophical studies, the difficulties and disagreements, of which its history is full, are mainly due to a very simple cause: namely to the attempt to answer questions, without first discovering precisely what question it is which you desire to answer.
