Overview

Double Billing: A Young Lawyer's Tale of Greed, Sex, Lies, and the Pursuit of a Swivel Chair by Cameron Stracher

Double Billing is a clever and sobering expose of the legal profession from the perspective of the lowest lawyer on the totem pole. Harvard Law School may have taught Cameron Stracher to think as a lawyer, but it was his experience as an associate that taught him to behave -- or misbehave -- as one. As timely now as it was when it was first published in 1998, this special E-book edition contains a new preface written by the author.

This book is funny and clever. Stracher's narration is whimsical and likeable as he explores the inner-workings of the big firm, where money and power are idealized by many of his colleagues. The quirks and oddities of his colleagues and of the firm are brought to light. Stracher also touches on the darker side of civil litigation as well as the greed and lies which he encounters in the firm. Overall this personal narrative is a pleasure to read. Stracher explains legal terms to readers and his writing is clear and effective, as well as mildly sarcastic. If you're looking for a fun, clever nonfiction read, this could be it.
