A new book, "eDiscovery Plain & Simple", has just arrived in bookstores. Written by Shawnna Childress, Executive Director and co-Founder of Women in eDiscovery and Allison Brecher, Senior Litigation Counsel and Director of Information Management and Strategy, Marsh & McLennan Companies, Inc., explains how computers operate and store data in a way that is designed for attorneys and paralegals with little, if any, technical background. The book offers strategies and practical suggestions to make discovery reasonable and cost-efficient.
eDiscovery Plain & Simple explains – through the most basic terminology and visuals – how computers, servers, and peripherals operate and store data. In order to make this book as user-friendly as possible, technical concepts are explained in a basic fashion and photographs, screenshots, tips, and checklists are interspersed throughout the book.
The team approaches eDiscovery from a fresh, new perspective that has been called "two parts law and one part technology". Readers can purchase eDiscovery Plain & Simple by visiting www.brecherchildress.com. The book is now available in bookstores and amazon.com. A portion of the proceeds will be used to buy technology for schools for visually impaired and physically challenged children.
