Americaas expert on law firm mismanagement is back with a whole new array of humorous committee meetings, memos, speeches, and consultantsa reports that present lawyers acting not like sharks, but rather floundering in a sea of dilemmas. The lawyers at the fictitious firm Fairweather, Winters a Sommers consider the advantages of merging and going virtual, bicker over a firm web site, and in front of a morning talk-show audience, try to understand economics, and scramble to figure out what to do when a big corporate client gets caught being unusually unethical. A sports-mogul client argues for drafting law-school graduates as if they were athletes, and a look into the future finds lawyers trolling outer space for new business. As ever, the firmas founder, Stanley Fairweather, gets the last, wise word. Imagination and humor drive this law firm send-up, which turns a dull topic into hilarious farce and entertains lawyers while showing them the error of their ways.If Grandma buys too many watermelons, it may make her less able to afford taking a car trip to see her granddaughter in Topeka. This untaken car trip may, in turn, lower the price of crude oil, but strike at the heart of the family relationship between ... Alison, who is Rebeccaa#39;s mother, happy, because Grandma shouldna#39;t be driving cross country at her age, anyway. Once you begin to understand these complex interrelationships, you can get some idea of how the laws of economics work.
