After a short review of the "New Now" (the new landscape of the legal industry), the author gives very practical and simple pieces of advice : invest in IT, social networks and so on. She also deals with the Ethics of the Cloud and I can assert that these issues are also raised (more or less in the same manner) in other jurisdictions (I practice in France). At the end of the day, it is not a revolutionary book : it just underscores that a revolution is in progress.
The book is full of useful, valuable (in the true sense of the term) and practical tips for lawyers. In that sense, it carries more value than some very expensive books on the legal industry !
The pros of being solo (or with a small firm) is being agile ! so act now !

This book is just like a legal brief chock full of information but tough to slog through. Good information but it is near impossible to pull good information out because the density of the material.It would be great if she would write like regular human beings read. Lawyer or not, no one enjoys reading a brief or a legal treatise.
