Two books, any reviews?


Two books, any reviews?
« on: March 16, 2006, 08:36:01 AM »
I would like to know if the following two books are worth purchasing for a Pre-Law Student.

1) Expert learning for Law Students by Michael Shwartz,
(available on Amazon)

2) Getting to Maybe by Richard Fischl
(also available on Amazon)

For those of you who have read any of these books, what did you think? The first book is somewhat new (2005) I don't know if it has been widely read and reviewed.  The other is a little older from 1999.  Would these books be more beneficial to read for those who are already enrolled or beneficial to a Pre-1L? Or reading these books are a waste of time?

I am reading LAW far it is pretty informative.  Most of it is a "review" to me (poli Sci major), but that is good given the fact that I have been out of school since Dec 2003.

Just ordered 1000 days to the Bar...Matthies gave a good review on this book.

Some rec Gideons Trumpet.  I read that for an undergrad Poli Sci class and it was entertaining and informative.
