A Short & Happy Guide to Evidence takes a challenging subject and breaks it into manageable pieces that are easy to understand and digest. This second edition is updated with the current Federal Rules of Evidence through December 2020. Virtually all of the graphics have been updated and refreshed. Many of the chapters have been expanded with new examples and explanations. Using practical examples and humor, this book takes you through the most difficult, and most often tested, rules.

After reading this book you will finally understand the Hearsay Rule. Flowcharts and graphics will assist the reader in a comprehensive understanding of the Federal Rules of Evidence and how they interact with each other.
