Ward Farnsworth's Classical English Rhetoric

When a book is already blurbed by Bryan A. Garner, David Mamet, and George Will (not to mention Eugene Volokh) I don't know that my endorsement can add much at the margin, but I found Farnsworth's Classical English Rhetoric edifying and entertaining.

Farnsworth is now a professor at Boston University Law School, but the book takes me back to the days when he was a law-school classmate and then a fellow Seventh Circuit clerk; now, as then, I envy his clear and convincing writing. With this book and his earlier The Legal Analyst, Farnsworth now has two volumes that belong on every law student's shelf as readable reference works to sharpen legal thinking and communicating.
