      Terrific resource for every professional. I first met Nora during a conference for bar association professionals and received a copy of her book. I was blown away by her ability to effectively communicate practical lessons to help clear the mental clutter that is affecting me at that particular moment. What I appreciate most is how its broken down to take one or two things a week to work on. I don’t feel like I need to read the entire book in one sitting to correct a problem. I go back to it over and over again. Last year when I was planning a national conference for attorneys practicing at the federal level, I knew I had to have Nora speak and purchase copies of her book for attendees. The feedback I received from the attorneys was overwhelmingly positive. Nora and her book are such wonderful resources for all leaders, beyond attorneys.

      A good resource for any professional, not just lawyers, on how to attain and maintain a better attitude on life management skills. There’s lots to glean here, and the author pulls from some great thinkers. A good read.

      Thank you Nora for writing such a wonderful, thought provoking book about what should be important in our lives. Remembering these basic rules makes life so much more rewarding and successful.

      Helpful advice for any profession! I implemented two of these lessons even before I finished the book and had a very productive week! Bergman’s advice is good for anyone in any profession, not just lawyers.

      Every Career Professional Should Read This Book!

      50 Lessons for Lawyers should not only be in every Lawyers’ office, but everyone with a professional and personal life who often feels like a juggler walking a tightrope. Nora Riva Bergman has captured so many situations that we all face and in simple straightforward manner helps you put it all in perspective. The best thing about Nora’s book is that while you should read it from beginning to end, you can just open up to any one of Nora’s lessons and focus your attention on juts accomplishing that one task. You will notice an immediate change in your daily routine. I have had the pleasure of meeting Nora and hearing her speak to attorneys and she is always captivating and inspiring. My copy of 50 Lessons for Lawyers which was autographed by Nora is a constantly a source of encouragement for me – it is always on my desk or close by. I highly recommend this book and if you ever have a chance to meet Nora or hear her speak you are in for a real treat!!

      Solo lawyer? Get this book. Nora gets it. Every lesson in the book has a place in the arsenal. Many of them I had to figure out the hard way.

    8. Sher

      Excellent book. The lessons are simple, yet complex. Most lawyers don’t understand he mechanics behind running a business. Nora breaks them down.

      I highly recommend this book.

      I highly recommend this book! If you are a stressed-out attorney or know one, 50 Lessons for Lawyers provides easy, practical tips for managing a legal career and practice. At least half of the Lessons can be applied to other careers or businesses as well.
