    Abstract

    Under Oath is not a comprehensive text but rather a brief guidebook (43 pages). Each of the eight chapters and three appendices is clear, concise, and organized. Chapter One addresses “Discovery and Pretrial matters” including depositions. It should be studied by any health care provider facing their first appearance at trial. Chapter Two explains the “Subpoena.” Chapter Three is loaded with examples of various personality types among lawyers, ranging from Mr. Rogers to Ghengis Khan, and several types in between. The author gives sage advice on responding to the cross examination directed by all of these characters. Chapter Four, on “Direct and Cross Examination” advises the reader on how to respond to the usual questions.
