Quote from: Kilgore on April 24, 2005, 11:21:32 PMJesus...do you sleep with this thing under your pillow or something?I haven't read Moby D1ck in 10 years. But if someone said it's about a dolphin that made friends with a lost sailor and the two lived happily ever after i'd be able to state: "ummm .... no it isn't, in fact - that's pretty much the opposite of what Moby D1ck was about". With any book i read i take away from it the major points the book makes. All of the statements NJ made (save the one i singled out) are so patently opposite of the major points of the book that they really were similiar to the "dolphin loves sailor" Moby D1ck interpretation i presented above.

I think this book has the potential to be helpful. How can it hurt? No one has seemed to answer that question.

I learned how to read in English and as a result of my international studies and military service, I also speak Italian, French and some Japanese, but that is besides the point. Bahamut, you don't know me and it was quite un-necessary to bash me personally. The OP asked "what was learned from PLSII" and I replied with MY OPINION.As far as prepping is concerned, I believe it is important to prep, especially if you have been out of school for a while, as I have.

It amazes me that I am being personally attacked for my personal opinion on something I purchased and read. My opinion makes me no better, or no worse than anyone else. You guys are attacking me as if I said negative things about the Pope! Geez, hope AF is paying you well.In my PERSONAL OPINION, I thought the book was the law school equivalent of Dianetics--too many rantings and far too long...for goodness sakes, there is an entire chapter called "whiners" about people who discredit the book--who cares? You like it or you don't. I didn't.The main point is, what works for one person may not work for others. I intend to take the Law Preview class and in the meantime, intend to read, what are, in MY OPINION, more worthwhile books, such as Law Stories, E&E, Intro. to Legal Reasoning, etc. The fact is, none of us are in law school yet and will not know what has helped until we go.Good luck to everyone.
