“‘Jeremy Richter is back with his second book for lawyers, and it’s another corker.  In this volume, Jeremy pinpoints perhaps the biggest flaw from which lawyers suffer as business owners: they’re reactive . . . to everything. His book addresses how lawyers can be more proactive about decision-making, and thus take more control over their careers.  Jeremy has a facility for stating real-world solutions simply, and without overstatement; and the advice provided is a veritable gold mine for the busy lawyer.  Crack this one open as soon as you can.” — Jared Correia, Host of the Legal Toolkit Podcast
