Must read for law students and new lawyers. This book absolutely helped me make partner at my firm.
Good, concise summary of the basics of being a "baby attorney." Most of the advice was just common sense (at least for me, as someone who worked in law offices prior to law school), but it's always nice to have a straightforward refresher handy for those times when your innate common sense goes AWOL.

Includes a nice primer on law firm economics
This book gave good practical tips and was easy to read. I appreciated his straight-forward writing.
Meh. Good if you want to get scared before you even start your first job as a lawyer.
I would recommend this to any summer or junior associate without hesitation.
Good stuff. Mostly geared for biglaw, but still broadly applicable.
