Questions that lawyers face daily, such as What do I do with my hands? Arenat gestures distracting? How do I remember everything? and I tend to talk so fastahow can I slow down? are among the questions addressed in this handbook.Triggering your natural gestures is analogous to jump-starting a dead car battery. You connect jumper cables from a working battery to the dead battery. The working battery jump-starts the dead one when you turn the key in the ignition.
