Recommended for: Lawyers

The basic premise of the book is "How do lawyers view the law?" The author, an attorney and law professor, sought out different kinds of New York lawyers - prosecutors, plaintiff's attorneys, corporate attorneys, defense attorneys, professors, etc. - and asked them. The answer? With a mixture of awe and contempt. They all recognized how the law can (and does) screw people, but they all seemed equally impressed that the legal system operates as fairly and efficiently as it does.
