In Point Taken, Ross Guberman delves into the work of the best judicial opinion-writers and offers a step-by-step method based on practical and provocative examples. Featuring numerous cases and opinions from 34 esteemed judges - from Learned Hand to Antonin Scalia - Point Taken, explores what it takes to turn "great judicial writing" into "great writing". Guberman provides a system for crafting effective and efficient openings to set the stage, covering the pros and cons of whether to resolve legal issues up front and whether to sacrifice taut syllogistic openings in the name of richness and nuance. Guberman offers strategies for pruning clutter, adding background, emphasizing key points, adopting a narrative voice, and guiding the reader through visual cues. The structure and flow of the legal analysis is targeted through a host of techniques for organizing the discussion at the macro level, using headings, marshaling authorities, including or avoiding footnotes, and finessing transitions. Guberman shares his style "Must Haves", a bounty of edits at the word and sentence level that add punch and interest, and that make opinions more vivid, varied, confident, and enjoyable. He also outlines his style "Nice to Haves", metaphors, similes, examples, analogies, allusions, and rhetorical figures. Finally, he addresses the thorny problem of dissents, extracting the best practices for dissents based on facts, doctrine, or policy. The appendix provides a helpful checklist of practice pointers along with biographies of the 34 featured judges.

This is the one collectors of big game hunting books have been waiting for! Records of North American Big Game is a one-of-a-kind big game records book that lives up to its longstanding reputation as "The Book" of native North American big game trophies. In its twelfth edition since the original book was published nearly seventy-five years ago, this latest edition has over 800-pages filled with valuable information for today''s hunters, outdoorsmen, and game managers. A total of thirty-eight different categories of North American big game are recognized and, as a testament to the success of today''s conservation and big game management efforts, a record-setting twelve new World''s Records are featured in this edition. Photographs and the stories behind these new World''s Records are included along with the photographs and stories about the other twenty-six World''s Records that the Club currently recognizes. New to this edition is a focus on showing as many of top-scoring trophies dating back to 1932 as possible. We''ve raided the Club''s records-keeping archives and found hundreds of photographs of top-scoring trophies that haven''t been published for decades. Before each category''s trophy list, readers will be delighted to view these photographs from history and track their individual measurements in the listings that follow. The Boone and Crockett Club has also put together an image-packed CD-ROM that includes desktop pictures featuring the top trophies, screen savers, downloadable score charts and more. Along with the detailed listing of over 22,000 trophies ranked by their all-time scores, this book also includes eight chapters by some of today''s most popular outdoor writers including Bob Robb, Gordon Whittington, Wayne Van Zwoll, and Jim Shockey. Hunters who pick up this book will enjoy reading about memorable hunting experiences, why and how antlers grow, along with chapters about the Sagamore Hill Award (the highest award given by B&C), the National Collection of Heads and Horns, and more. Records of North American Big Game is much more than a book of records-keeping statistics, it is a history book of big game animals in North America. Informative chapters, hunting stories, and hundreds of portrait and field photographs make this book an exceptional resource for hunters and sportsmen and provides hours of reading enjoyment.

Three Tree Point is a prominent peninsula on the eastern shore of Puget Sound about 14 miles south of Seattle. Its name came from three massive fir trees that stood on the north side of the point at the beginning of the 20th century. The area remained largely undeveloped until 1903 when the Three Tree Point Company began marketing the community as a place to build summer homes. Seattle’s business elite built houses at the point to take advantage of the beach lifestyle for which it has become known. Over the years, Three Tree Point and its 2.5 miles of waterfront emerged as one of the Northwest’s most unique residential communities. Its history is a diverse mixture of family life, unusual characters, Fourth of July celebrations, shipwrecks, fishing derbies, and storytelling.

The Naval Academy's culture is a unique and sometimes baffling phenomenon to the outside world, but with this newly updated guide in hand relatives and friends of midshipmen will find answers to all the questions they might have about Academy life. Since it was first published more than a decade ago, parents have relied on the almanac for insights into their sons' and daughters' experiences at Annapolis. Now the son of the original author has taken on the responsibility of bringing the popular reference up to date. An Academy graduate, active duty naval officer, and former English instructor at the Academy, the younger Mackenzie makes full use of his intimate knowledge of Annapolis to fill in the gaps. Along with the latest facts on car ownership, dating policies, athletic requirements, and disciplinary demands, you'll now find a useful guide to Internet resources. A midshipman profile and a dictionary of "Midspeak" completes the picture in a book whose title recalls the midshipmen's own manual, Reef Points, but extends its concept for outsiders seeking practical information about the Academy, the Navy, and Annapolis. Prospective applicants, graduates, newcomers to the USNA staff, and visitors seeking a memento will also be attracted to this useful guide.
