#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Former congressman and prosecutor Trey Gowdy teaches you how to effectively communicate and persuade on the issues that matter most to you, drawing on his experience in the courtroom and the halls of Congress. “A must-read for people who want to learn how best to succeed.”—Dana Perino, Fox News host and bestselling author of Everything Will Be Okay You do not need to be in a courtroom to advocate for others. You do not need to be in Congress to champion a cause. From the boardroom to the kitchen table, opportunities to make your case abound, and Doesn’t Hurt to Ask shows you how to seize them. By blending gripping case studies from nearly two decades in a courtroom and four terms in national politics with personal stories and practical advice, Trey Gowdy walks you through the tools and the mindset needed to effectively communicate your message. Along the way, Gowdy reflects on the moments in his life when he learned the most about how to argue and convince. He recounts his missteps during his first murder trial, the conversation that changed his view on criminal justice reform, and what he learned while questioning James Comey and Secretary Hillary Clinton. Sharing the techniques he perfected advocating in law and politics, Gowdy helps you identify your objective, understand your personal jury, and engage in the art of questioning so you can be heard, be understood, and, ultimately, move others. Whether it’s getting a boss to take a chance on your idea, convincing someone to support your cause, or urging a child to invest more effort in an important task, movement requires persuasion. Doesn’t Hurt to Ask shows you how to persuade, no matter the jury and no matter the cause.

Summary of Doesn't Hurt to Ask One of the most critical skills a prosecutor can have in a courtroom is the ability to persuade. Every prosecutor knows that if they cannot persuade a jury of their client's guilt, they will never get the sentence they want. To persuade, someone must possess a few skills. The first thing they must do is know their jury. They must know any biases their jury may have, and they must know how their jury thinks. Without being able to meet the jury where they are, a prosecutor will not be very convincing. The second thing they must do is learn to listen. Listening effectively gets to know a jury, but it also helps a prosecutor ask questions. Every good prosecutor has mastered the skills of when to ask leading vs. non-leading questions. Third, a prosecutor must have strong facts and solid evidence to reach their conclusions, and they must not impede their credibility by misrepresenting facts. Fourth, when talking to witnesses, a prosecutor must seek to either undermine their credibility or build it up. By asking the right questions and presenting the correct facts, they can do this. A great prosecutor will subtly do all of these things, treating persuasion like a process rather than a momentary battle. Real persuasion is done by getting to know others and incrementally persuading them, a skill that Gowdy teaches every reader how to possess in this book.

What does this SNAP Summary Include? - Synopsis of the original book - Key takeaways from each chapter - The key principles of persuasion - How to connect and persuade like a top-rated attorney - Editorial Review - Background on Trey Gowdy About the Original Book: The traditional way to persuade, Gowdy writes, is to present a logical argument and defend it with declarations of facts. This approach often works, but it is not very effective because it is essentially a monologue, and people don’t respond too well to being told what to do or believe. A better way to persuade is to determine your objective, get your facts straight, figure out your audience, and ask it the right questions at the right time. Drawing from his experiences as a prosecutor and congressman, Gowdy shows how this deceptively simple approach can be used to communicate effectively, connect deeply, and persuade convincingly. Readers who wish to become effective advocates for themselves and others will find Doesn’t Hurt to Ask an invaluable resource.

This third edition of Leadership and... means there are around 12,000 of them already around and hopefully being read. There are many things that I could add if I rewrote it - that would be a new book. The first encouraging thing about this book is the many different training courses which use it as a text book. The reprint will help those who still try to order it for courses that they are running. The second thing is the many young people who say “I have read your book” to which I reply – “Thank you!” “No” they say “you don’t understand, it’s the only book I have read all the way through!” Just because it’s short does not make what I say about leadership unimportant, to quote another reader, “It gives you lots that you have to continue to unpack yourself and think around”. Well I know it’s short, but it gives the most important principal of leadership, SERVANT LEADERSHIP!

After all, she can barely balance her checkbook, nevermind tackle complicated spells and magic. Her sisters seem to be handling the witchy stuff much better than she is, but her grandmother is convinced that the three of them are somehow the most powerful witches their sleepy little town has ever seen. After all, they're not just witches, but they're half faery, too. When her lousy ex-husband winds up murdered in her bed, Twyla has to prove that she's innocent, but that won't be easy. The Sheriff hates her entire family and would like nothing more than to see Twyla get locked up forever for the murder. With the help of her two sisters and a few quirky supernatural friends, can Twyla figure out who really killed her ex so she can clear her name and possibly nab a date with the cute shifter cop investigating her?

It's a town with many secrets and shames, and it's up to Twyla and her sisters to sort through them all and figure out just who they can trust.
