I read The Lawyer’s Guide to Being Human with great pleasure. I would highly recommend that lawyers read this book to help them determine where they are in both their careers and personal life. I believe, if lawyers were to read this book, assess their position, and take appropriate action, it would improve their overall quality of life in that they would be happier, and consequently, do a better job professionally.

The Lawyer’s Guide to Being Human offers insight and advice that can help any lawyer find a greater sense of personal and professional satisfaction. Batdorf shares his wisdom and experience through self-disclosure in a way that is refreshingly honest, upbeat, and realistic.

The Lawyer’s Guide to Being Human is a practical but gentle guide for lawyers who have long wanted to make professional changeseither minor adjustments or drastic transformationsbut have been afraid to do so. Perhaps most impressive is its ability to take on the huge problem of attorney unhappiness in a quiet and personal way, letting dissatisfied lawyers everywhere know that they are definitely not alone.

It has taken me many years and thousands of hours of study to acquire the knowledge and wisdom that is contained in Mr. Batdorf’s little book. I want to thank Tim Batdorf for finally giving lawyers a simple primer on how to reclaim their humanity and, with it, the passion, fulfillment and joy that is possible in the practice of law but eludes so many lawyers.

The Lawyer’s Guide to Being Human is honest, funny, and insightful. Tim combines practical suggestions with examples and anecdotes in a conversational tone that make his points easily grasped. I think every lawyer can find something that will improve their practice, even if they’re already feeling happy and fulfilled.
