PreLawAdviser More than 1 year ago
I could not read past a few pages of this book. I wanted to like it. The title and description sounded great and as a pre-law adviser, I'm always looking for good books about lawyers to recommend to my students. Unfortunately, I found it dense and boring and rather self-important. I tried reading the first pages of several chapters and just could not go any farther. Sorry, Mr. Sells, but this book had no "soul" for this reader.
