“This book tells you all you need to know about how to get on.” The Times
“Relatively few books have been written with assistant solicitors in mind, about how to succeed at the business of being a lawyer… fewer still have devised a programme for so doing that runs alongside a book. This book does both.”Law Society (The Law Management Section)

As lawyers we know that things tend to happen at breakneck pace, leading to occasional feelings of being under constant pressure. At these times it’s important that you take care of yourself so you can remain (relatively!) calm and in control. Most lawyers aren’t hugely familiar with tools like meditation, but the truth is, just as your body needs regular exercise to remain fit and healthy, so does your mind. If you already meditate, you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about. But if you, like me, find it hard to relax, sit still, or even temporarily shut your brain down, then you’re probably already protesting, “I don’t feel comfortable with that New Age stuff. Besides, it’s the fact that my brain’s always rushing around that gives me an edge!” Believe me, I know that feeling. But, like me, you also might just be wrong!
