The author helps create a step-by-step process for law school hopefuls and ends things with what it is like to be a lawyer, as well as some insight on knowing now what he wished he knew then. The helpful tips he provides in between should make law school much easier than those who do not know what to expect going in.
I believe that since the author had a career and a family before entering law school, he was able to write the book and offer a sobering impression on what a life in law is like, and that there are those who can make it in the profession and be successful while still having a life outside of the job.
The title of the book is called "So You Want To Be A Lawyer, Eh?" not "So You Are Thinking About Becoming A Lawyer, Eh?" even though it does help with some of those questions. If you are looking for a book that will help convince you to go to law school, or that being a lawyer is right for you, it doesn't exist, as it also doesn't exist for other professions. Follow the steps the author provides on exploring the legal profession.
If you are willing to drop tens of thousands of dollars on going to law school in Canada, it is worth spending the money and getting this very affordable book.
Not my cup of tea, but still one of the better Canadian law resources out there.
I can see how this book would be useful to students in their undergrad considering law school or students in any year of law school.
It was refreshing to read about how the legal sector is in CANADA, not the US.
P.S. I emailed the author to ask him a few further questions. He posts his email address all over the book offering to send materials or answer questions. Although the email address in the book came back as not active, I tracked his actual email down from the book's website. He got back to me within 24 hours with very full and informative response. The author really cares about his readers and seems willing to take time to answer questions.

Pertinent and comprehensive resource for law school applicants while being concise and easy to read :)Published 8 months ago by Dr. F.
Not nearly as informative as I thought and a lot of the info was already out of date/incorrect, for Ontario anyway. Read morePublished on June 4 2011 by Kintore
