I'm with ya, loveless. I'll probably read Getting To Maybe at some point, but PLS made me want to stick something in my eye. I picked it up, thumbed through, and put it down so fast you'd have thought it was radioactive. I think it's just geared at a very different personality type than mine, and I have no doubt it's got a lot of great information. But I can give myself a headache for free, thank you very much.
I have to go with Jolie on this. I invested in PLS, read it for a few hours, put it down, and have never picked it up again. It is currently serving as a throne for my kitten on the bookshelf in my office.
The list of pre-reading, the suggested preparation, and time investment made me want to vomit. Law school is going to be hard enough. BC was kind enough to send a list of "recommended but not required reading" that I have been slogging through in between pleasure reads.
My theory on law school, as of now, is that I'm going to figure it out as I go. I already have two good friends who have survived and will graduate next spring (from Cornell and UMiami). I take my advice from them.
I am one of those anal people that really likes to be prepared, but something about PLS felt like too much to me.
