I have been asked to present a 50 minute seminar on the topic of Law Office Technology.
I started to compile a list of books that I have used, over the last ten years or so, as the foundation of my understanding of the modern world. It is more a bibliography than anything that a particular lawyer needs to read on a particular day.
I have mentioned some of these books in prior postings, and they definitely are with me when I write anything. Some are easier reads than others, but they are solid writings, by Pulitzer Prize and Nobel prize winners. All that are rated on Amazon are four stars or better. Here they are:
Anything by Bill Bryson is entertaining and informative, especially “A Short History of Nearly Everything“.
Finally, for a whopping big novel, Charles Dickens’ Bleak House. Also, The Checklist Manefesto, which makes the case for checklists in nearly any human endeavor, and the story of cancer, The Emperor of Maladies. I could go on, and probably will. Happy reading.
