Show synopsis Pleading Without Tears has become established as one of the most successful books on practical drafting. This sixth edition consolidates and updates the fifth edition which itself totally revived the work in the light of the many changes in drafting format and techniques brought about by the new Civil Procedure Rules. The book takes a personal and common sense look at the subject of legal drafting. Rather than merely providing a series of precedents, the author sets out fundamental rules common to all good drafting, so that the reader will become more confident in approaching this often unnecessarily daunting subject. The book contains a wealth of practical examples and anecdotes and is illustrated throughout with cartoons. Although its style is light and entertaining, the detailed analysis and explanation are designed to help the reader acquire an understanding of drafting without even realizing it.
