KIRKUS REVIEW

If the best defense is really a good offense, then there is enough offensiveness here to defend anyone. Veteran trial lawyer Sydney Schweitzer weaves a many-colored coat of tips on manipulating statistics, manufacturing academic or professional research projects to elicit grants (""the philanthropic maneuver""), masquerading as competent in the corporate setup; and utilizing the classic tactics: scapegoating, diversion, discrediting, ""blurring"" truths and half-truths, and flattery. Apropos of the last, Schweitzer affects a posture of earthy dignity: ""This doesn't mean, however, that you have to kiss every tush you are trying to condition."" There may be an audience of underdogs who will lap this up as they have similar tomes, sad to say.
