The player(s): Yours truly as herpty derp
The scene: Last semester of 3L year, herpty derp is sitting in front of her laptop at an ungodly hour. It's Reaping Day at her law school and she's about to storm the virtual gates of registration. At the same time (which means all the time), she's questioning her life choices.

*Herp to self*
Herp: I'm about to graduate and I have no marketable skills. What classes should I take before reality and student debt hit me like a mack truck?
Herp: Maybe M&A? Because I can't imagine an existence more fulfilling than reading 1000 page asset purchase agreements while a pasty-looking middle-aged partner micromanages all life out of me.
*Herp registers for M&A*

...four month later..
Herp: My M&A final is in five days and I haven't done any reading for the class because I suck at life. What does EBITDA mean??!! Is it the name of a short-lived Silicon Valley startup?!! A brand of artisan chocolate made out of luwak poop???!
Herp: I should order supplements. I should order ALL THE SUPPLEMENTS.
*Herp looks at bank account*
Herp: I should order one supplement and not the ingestible kind.
*Herp browses Amazon for M&A supplements when she should be studying. Herp decides on Bainbridge's M&A. Herp splurges on one-day shipping. Herp crams the book in two days.*

...Day of exam - Herp goes in with little sleep and too much coffee. Four hours later...
Herp: I suck at M&A and I suck at law school and I suck at life. Law school was a bad choice.

...Five weeks later, Herp checks her grades...

*End scene*

Law school is still a bad choice.

Bainbridge is a phenomenal writer, and this book does not disappoint. It's clear, concise, and covers all of the basics. Law firms should assign this as mandatory reading for all new junior M&A lawyers.

This book is comprehensive and packed with useful information. I have been able to apply what I've learned directly to client counseling.
