Success Briefs For Lawyers: Inspirational Insights On How To Succeed At Law And Life, by Amiram Elwork & Mark R. Siwik (Editors). (Published by the Vorkell Group, 1/2002, 204 pages, 5.25” x 7.25”, hardcover, ISBN 0-9644727-2-4, $26.95) This book is based on a simple idea: If you want to achieve personal and professional satisfaction in the practice of law, find lawyers who have done it and learn from them. The editors have brought together a group of highly successful and distinguished lawyers and judges to tell their stories in ways that will make you laugh, tug your heartstrings, get you to reexamine your goals and values, and motivate you to improve your life.
The underlying message in this book is that the ultimate measure of your success is whether you are happy, and that, in turn, is often a function of whether you are living up to your own individual values. If you are not true to your own values, chances are that you will be unhappy, and if you are unhappy, all other achievements become somewhat irrelevant. Each of the authors describe the individually unique ways that they found happiness, in the hopes that their stories will guide the reader to the same.
