He's a hiring partner at one of the world's largest law firms. Brilliant yet ruthless, he has little patience for associates who leave the office before midnight or steal candy from his secretary's desk. He hates holidays and paralegals. And he's just started a weblog to tell the world about what life is really like at the top of his profession.

Meet Anonymous Lawyer, who has a billable rate of $675 an hour. He's also got a few problems that require attention. There's The Jerk, his rival at the firm. There's Anonymous Wife, spending money as fast as he can make it. And there's the secret blog he's writing, which is fun until someone inside the firm discovers he's the author.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Flora | 2/16/2014

    " A delightful read, until the end when the plot wobbles into a letdown. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Darcy | 2/15/2014

    " This is one of the funniest books I have ever read! However, it is probably more funny to me as an aspiring lawyer, but nevertheless I highly recommend it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne | 2/9/2014

    " Scathing view of life inside a biglaw firm. Could be some truth to it. Published as a series blog and email entries. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristin | 2/6/2014

    " If you are a fan of lawyer jokes, this book is for you. I laughed out loud many, many times. The book is made entirely from emails sent to and from a hiring attorney at a big law firm and his hilarious blog (which does actually exist). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily | 2/5/2014

    " This is a fun read for those of us going into law. Nothing more, nothing less. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathy | 2/1/2014

    " This was the funniest book i have read in a long time. It is written by a real lawyer and is such a fun, entertaining read. It gives you stereotypical way of how we would view lawyers in the way they think but its written in a funny way. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Monique | 1/30/2014

    " I enjoyed reading this book, it was very easy to read given its format (blog posts). I could also relate to a few characters in the book, given the rigors of trying to fit in the legal profession. Not bad at all. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Celia Powell | 1/25/2014

    " I used to occasionally read bits of the blog "Anonymous Lawyer", and thought it was an amusing spoof on life in a big law firm. The book of the blog, however, is a bit awful, as I imagine most books-of-blogs are. It consists of blog entries and emails, with a pretty pathetic plot woven in between. While the over-the-top character who writes the blog entries is amusing, it doesn't work in the emails when the ott character is presented as a real person. Not believable at all, to the point where I became bored. Should have left it in blog form, I think. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alison | 1/20/2014

    " Being the wife of a lawyer I found this book hilarious and frightening. I finished the book late at night and couldn't go to sleep because I just kept thinking about The Jerk. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lexish | 1/11/2014

    " If you are an attorney who has worked at a large firm (and especially if you're one of the many who just got laid off), I encourage you to read this. It's pure humor, but extremely satisfying. Non-lawyer discretion is advised. ;-) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Omar | 12/25/2013

    " Funny from start to finish! An inside look into a law firm and its practices. Truly encompasses different aspects of comedy, from dry humor to ridiculously absurd. The ending was a bit weak, but the whole book is worth a read or a listen(I listened to it on audio). "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Heidi | 12/5/2013

    " Quick read and at times scathingly funny, but I bet I'd have liked it better if I was a lawyer... the ending was slightly satisfying... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stephanie | 11/28/2013

    " Everyone should read this book. I loved it. I just don't get the ending... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 11/26/2013

    " Slightly over the top with a predictable ending but it was wickedly funny! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Trena | 11/24/2013

    " Hilarious easy read; a must for anyone who has ever worked at biglaw "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nathaniel | 11/18/2013

    " I laughed out loud multiple times. Who knew that law firm hijinks could be so consistently funny? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anna | 11/10/2013

    " One of few books that made me laugh out loud! Absolutely hilarious, witty and clever. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janet | 8/28/2013

    " Funny. The inner workings of a high profile lawyer's mind as he plots to be Chairman of the firm and as he views the summer interns and law in general. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Skip | 10/8/2012

    " interesting insight into something i have zero perspetive on: the life of a 'big firm' lawyer...written like a weblog with occasional email entries made for an unique format. quick read...funny parts...weird ending. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katherine Fuller | 8/5/2012

    " A modern epistolary novel told through e-mails and blogs. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 deborah lawson | 10/7/2011

    " It is rare to find a book that so accurately describes the practice of law. If you want to know what it is really like to be a lawyer, read this book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maryellen | 1/27/2011

    " The book is structured as blog posts and emails, which has always been a voyeuristic pleasure of mine. It's clever and surprisingly fun to read, despite how much of a jerk the 'partner' is. I want to know more! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jen | 1/22/2011

    " Liked this satire on the world of lawyers by a supposedly highly placed employee of a leading law firm. Not much chance to see other people's viewpoints because it is always told in blogs or emails, but wickedly funny within these constraints. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cedar | 1/1/2011

    " I laughed at it a few times, which is why it gets three stars. It was only funny because I worked in a place just like the one the author describes ... even though he pretends its satire. I'd call it more "creative non-fiction." A quick read/guilty pleasure. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Alex | 12/27/2010

    " My mother bought the book for me, so I felt obliged to read it...never again. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christine | 11/28/2010

    " hysterical. and not just a bound copy of the blog. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Monique | 8/6/2010

    " I enjoyed reading this book, it was very easy to read given its format (blog posts). I could also relate to a few characters in the book, given the rigors of trying to fit in the legal profession. Not bad at all. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ashley FL | 7/27/2010

    " This is only 4 stars for lawyer-lit geeks. But I thought it was hilarious! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne | 5/1/2010

    " Scathing view of life inside a biglaw firm. Could be some truth to it. Published as a series blog and email entries. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kim | 4/26/2010

    " Loved this book!!! All time favorite....it reads via emails, phone messages, etc...couldn't get enough of it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nathaniel | 3/30/2010

    " I laughed out loud multiple times. Who knew that law firm hijinks could be so consistently funny? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alicia | 3/27/2010

    " Improbable premise, depressingly accurate. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenni | 3/10/2010

    " A pretty funny satire on big law firms. But the ridiculousness of it started to get a little old by the time I was about half-way through. Still very funny, though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jen | 2/24/2010

    " This is a hysterical book especially if, like me, you work in this industry. It is so true in so many aspects. I got laughing pretty hard at moments. A Judge in my courthouse also read it and it was entertaining to hear him giggling to himself over it. We all know it's true. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 2/10/2010

    " Fun to read when you're stuck in a law firm, and satisfying to read after you've escaped. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nats | 1/28/2010

    " Ever worked in a law firm? this book will make you giggle and possibly cringe depending on your position in the firm hierarchy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vina | 10/6/2009

    " Hilarious book. Good for light reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sean | 9/29/2009

    " very creative. i really enjoyed the format that allowed for my imagination to fill in the gaps inbetween each blog post or email. "
