Any progress with Posner's How Judges Think? I just finished Posner's Cardozo: A Study in Reputation which is explicitly written for lawyers and non-lawyers. He often has asides and footnotes for those of us with the intellectual handicap. I'm guessing How Judges Think is going to be more law-knowledge based, but I'm interested to hear your thoughts. Let me know.
To tell you the truth...it read more along the lines for those that are lawyers. Not sure if that makes me seem less "worthy" to be a lawyer. I didnt get much through it...went on to other things and started working again which means less emphasis on reading after work as of right now.
Id be interested in trying out Cardozo: A Study in Reputation however.
Honestly, don't waste your time (or money) with Cardozo. There are so many better things to read. And, btw, we go to law school to become lawyerly. We can't reasonably be expected to be laywer-worthy (and to understand the highest level of law speak) at this stage of the game. What else have you read thus far?
