I recently finished Don’t Eat the Bruises by Keith Mitnik. He is an attorney with Morgan and Morgan who mainly just handles the trial for various attorney. It’s also not a book that offers a system. The book suggests approaches to incorporate into the practitioner’s existing trial system. The first third of the book covers voir dire. Mitnik devotes other sections to opening, the evidence phase (direct and cross), closing and dealing with the burden of proof. The book's voir dire issues alone are well worth the read. This is one of the better law books I have read and it does not get boring.
