Kendall F. Svengalis: Legal Information Buyer's Guide & Reference Manual 2008
An essential reference book for any law library, especially in law firms. I wish I had had this when I first started my business. Thanks again, Ken (****)
Margaret Grisdela: Courting Your Clients: The Essential Guide to Legal Marketing
See our review under Book Reviews section.
- Nelson Blish: The Taking of the King
This is another science fiction book. I know, not related to legal marketing, but by a local attorney.
Harry Beckwith: Selling the Invisible
Great advice for people trying to market service businesses.
- Clarence H Ridley and Peter C Quittmeyer and John Matuszeski: Computer Software Agreements: Forms and Commentary with Forms
One of my clients says, "This is the best book of forms, not just for computer software. If you buy only one book for a business law firm, get this one."

Robert F. Rosenzweig: Alien Assist: The Taking of USS Louisiana
This has nothing to do with Legal Marketing, but I had to post this because the author is my first cousin. I'm proud and jealous. I guess I'll have to write one of my own.
By the way, the book is science fiction. Congratulations, Bob!
