"A comprehensive resource for applying the new federal e-discovery rules and understanding the rapidly accumulating body of e-discovery case law.
A form book on the mechanics of electronic discovery may sound exquisitely tedious, but the intervening essays are eminently readable--substantive, pithy, and occasionally even literary. The value of the Handbook to a litigation practice far outweighs the price tag. It should serve as inspiration to galvanize your standard legal skills "to push the envelope of what electronic evidence can reveal" during discovery, and as a guide for meeting the high standard of involvement and monitoring that courts expect of attorneys when it comes to preservation and production of electronic evidence." -- Daniel J. Lowenberg, The Masters Law Firm
