Adam, I really want to thank you again for your book. I absolutely love it. It is a wealth of information on so may levels. I find reading it to be very inspiring and comforting; I really appreciate the insights you provide on absolutely every aspect of law school. Being that I'm starting law school in September 2007, I'm so glad I'm reading your book - there are a lot of things you've advised upon that will save me a lot of time and frustration, and helpfully give me a better chance to do well from the get-go, and the chance to make a heck of a lot fewer mistakes!

I especially appreciate your perspective as a father and husband, particularly on issues like working part time, managing your time, strategies to effective studying and balancing your life.

I'll be finished the book this week, but you can bet I'm going to read it again in August, and definitely will keep it as a reference manual.

Thanks,
Essien Udokang
