Quote of the Day - I take the view, and always have, that if you cannot say what you are going to say in twenty minutes you ought to go away and write a book about it.
MIPTC occasionally gets advance copies of books to read, and one showed up in my inbox through the comments to this blog. It's Solomon v. Lord, available September 2005. I started laughing on page two; I'm halfway through the book and haven't stopped yet. Author Paul Levine is a lawyer who's written the book for general consumption, but lawyers won't be able to put it down. It's a startlingly accurate portrayal of criminal trial lawyers and the judicial system, and a compelling read. You won't go wrong if it's the only book you take on vacation.
You'll get an inside book on the law and enjoy every page. Levine is a cross between Grisham and Leno, and the book shows it.
