Best Book For Lawyers?

The best book for lawyers?

I think this is a question you can answer by looking at the answers to other questions. But I don’t see how anyone could argue against The Confusion of Courts: A Legal Theory of Jurisdiction (Oxford University Press, 2007). It’s got it all — jurisprudence and law as social science; politics and power as fundamental principles; even history as an important element in understanding our legal system. Professor Hart’s ideas are magnificent, his prose elegant, and there aren’t too many things that people say about him that he hasn’t already said himself. If ever a book was written with the intention of influencing every aspect of your life — including your career — this would be it.
