Yes, my title is meant to be tongue-in-cheek. But it is notable nevertheless that Fastcase, a company that has helped pioneer the field of affordable electronic legal research, today announced the release of a new book, its first in print.

It was two years ago that Fastcase launched a legal publishing arm, called Full Court Press, with the mission to produce law journals, legal treatises, deskbooks, and other legal resources. Its first publication was RAIL: The Journal of Robotics, Artificial Intelligence & Law.

Today, Full Court Press announced its first print book, MAP a Complex Case: A Guide for Managing, Analyzing, and Presenting a High-Risk Case. Written by Dave Dolkas, a former McDermott Will & Emery litigator with more than 30 years of experience, the book is described as a comprehensive instructional guide on how to manage, analyze and present (thus the MAP of the title) a high-risk case.

This is actually the fourth edition of the book, which was previously published by LexisNexis under the title, Managing Complex Litigation: A Guide to MAP (Manage, Analyze, and Present) A Complex IP Case.

The price of the book is $39. For those of you who have not yet entered the paper age, it is also available in PDF and e-book formats. A free preview is available for download.
