Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A fast, furious, and funny read.” Tampa Tribune
“Blachman skewers his profession with slash-and-burn ferocity…Laugh 'til it hurts.” Rocky Mountain News
“Side-achingly funny.” Publishers Weekly
“Hilariously malevolent, affording readers the thrill of vicariously acting out their darkest impulses while confirming their belief that only lawyers would act so badly…[Porter’s] dead-serious delivery adds to the wry humor of cutthroat corporate competition at the law firm…Irresistibly funny.” Booklist 
“Fresh, humorous, irreverent, downright rude, and in your face…Yet, what you believe is the ending has a strange twist that leaves the listener thinking.” Kliatt
