—A.J. Jacobs, author of The Know-It-All and The Year of Living Biblically
"Rick Lax is really funny and uses his background in magic to see through the bullshit and hypocrisy that make up the law school experience. I'm really glad he's getting the law degree so he has a job other than magic—we don't need this kind of competition."
—Penn Jillette, author of Sock, co-host of Showtime's Bullsh*t!, and the larger, louder half of the performing team Penn & Teller
"A very entertaining work by a clever, hopeful, and unavoidably unscrupulous guy. My kinda book."
—Harry Anderson, author of Games You Can't Lose and star of Night Court and Dave's World
"Rick Lax may be at law school—and he may try to impress girls at parties by doing magic tricks—but he isn't a total geek. Okay, that's a lie. He is a total geek—but Lawyer Boy is thoroughly entertaining nevertheless."
—Toby Young, author of How to Lose Friends and Alienate People and The Sound of No Hands Clapping
"Lawyer Boy is a blast . . . Rick Lax is an ideal guide to law school, generous with practical advice and juicy gossip. It’s The Paper Chase on nitrous—an oddball’s journey into the deepest inner circles of law school hell. The absolute best magician/law student/cowbellist memoir ever written."
—Christopher Noxon, author of Rejuvenile
"Rick Lax writes with a sharp wit and a fine sense of the absurd. Lawyer Boy might not help anyone succeed in law school, but it will certainly make the experience more enjoyable."
—Steven Lubet, author of Lawyers' Poker
