The Scavenging Thread

I like to read about fields other than law (improvisational theatre, comedy, chaos studies, interrogation, acting, survival, hypnosis, the Tao, NLP, aikido, etc.) that I think might be relevant to the practice of criminal trial law. I’m always looking for more suggestions — for example, when Western Justice wrote about Statement Analysis, I ordered the book (which I’m reading now).
Please take a few moments to leave a comment and share your own suggestions. If you could give me a few words on how you relate the material to what we do, it’d be most helpful.
Thanks.
