I borrowed this book from the library but I'm thinking of purchasing to have on hand as a reference. I read it in one sitting. I recommend to anyone who is trying to decide whether they truly want to invest the time and money in pursuing a law degree. Coleman tells you what qualities lawyers and law students possess, and what they do. He goes on to practical advice about choosing a school and about admissions. This was actually fun to read!
