“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)

When inventing the light bulb, Thomas Edison failed thousands of times before eventually succeeding. When asked how it felt to fail so often, Edison replied that he had not failed at all—he had just discovered thousands of ways how not to make a light bulb. We should all attempt to cultivate such a healthy attitude to failure, because it’s from our failures that we learn the most. When we fail, we should analyze our mistake, figure out where we went wrong, and then try to discover a better method next time. Failure is the best (and toughest) feedback there is!
