Format: Hardcover
If pin sharp observation and razor like wit are your things, then this book is a must for your collection. Daniel R White and Alex Williams poke fun at the legal profession from law student to High Court Judge and all in between. The Times describes it as 'irreverent, funny and perceptive'. I couldn't agree more. The Chapters on Recruiting and Survival should be required reading for anyone contemplating embarking on the dubious pleasures of the corporate ladder, whether as a lawyer or not. But beware, having read it you may never be able view the profession in quite the same light again. Excellent!

Format: Hardcover
Having read the book in just two sittings, I felt compelled to review what I found to be a brilliantly informative and humorous guide to the legal profession. As a trainee solicitor at a large corporate firm, I truly believe that the authors have done a great job of providing information that will hold me - and others in similar roles - in very good stead for the future.

My old law library contained the previous edition, which I had dipped into on occasion. Some will notice a big change in the illustrations for the 2011 edition - a cartoonist from The Times (Alex Williams) has been brought in to give the revised text a 'Queen's Counsel' style make-over. And having compared the two, I can report that the new version not only reads better, it looks much better too.

All in all, an easy 5 stars. I urge you to give the book a try - it deserves to be read alongside even the most 'serious' tomes - personally, I would rather read this than Glanville's 'Learning the Law' any day of the week!

For lawyers, or anyone who has dealings with them, this book is excellent fun. I sat up late into the night reading this, and laughing my head off all the way! A superb gift for anyone connected with the legal profession.

Format: Hardcover
Funny and truthful at the same time, with great illustrations by Mr Williams, this book is good fun.
Not a lawyer myself, but having been a juror ,I did recognise much of the jargon and behaviour of your typical British lawyer put across in an amusing and clever way.
Highly recommended!

Format: Hardcover
... I found this book a tremendously entertaining read. Full of home truths, uncomfortable truths, it is perceptive, incisive, you can really recognise the scenarios, dynamics and the bones laid bare by their observations. Easily navigable, self-depreciative and, above all, it is wry, dry and funny!
