I bought a copy of it brand new off Ebay after reading Law School Confidential and wanting more of the same. I was disappointed. Severely.
The author comes off sounding like someone who: a) didn't do well in law school (and got bullied every day of his life before law school), or b) someone who couldn't get a job out of law school. He goes on so many paranoid rants about how messed up the system is and spends little time actually offering advice. There are a few nice insights (and by few, I mean about 3% of the book), but overall I found that it was not worth the effort.
Law School Confidential, on the other hand, I really enjoyed. It is full of student opinions of what to expect, and it offers a less "I-hate-law" approach. I will probably use some of the study tips offered in LSC. If it comes down to one or the other, Law School Confidential is (for me) the hands-down winner.
