I read this book eight years after finishing law school. It took me back to all that was good, and bad, about that experience.
Anyone who is going, or thinking about going, to law school should read this book to learn what they're getting themselves into. It will help them get some sort of idea of what they need to do to "succeed" in law school (and to define what that means for them) as well as understand the different paths available to those with a J.D.
I also recommend it for current lawyers, so that they can recall the pain and humor of the "classhole" and other law school experiences.
This is a great and humorous read.
