I have a small beef with this book which prevented it from achieving the rarified air of five stars. Since the book discusses a broad range of subjects pertaining to law school, it gives a fairly superficial treatment of each. This is of course out of necessity; the book would be 2,000 pages long if Miller went into detail about every last topic. But he makes very few recommendations for further reading. A perfect example is the chapter entitled "Your Five Most Critical Hours: How to Beat the LSAT." Judging by the title, you'd think this was a veritable cornucopia of information on cracking the LSAT, right? Guess what--the chapter is seven pages long. The only resources Miller mentions are the Princeton Review (he didn't take it), a Princeton Review book and an ARCO book. These are mentioned in passing; they are not recommendations. My point is, this book would have benefited greatly from a "Further Reading" section at the end of each chapter for those who want to get more detailed information about a topic and are confused by the ocean of law school books that are out there.
But this is just a small chink in the armor of what I consider to be a very helpful, informative and enjoyable book. Kudos to Mr. Miller--a generation of law students will be better off for having read his book.
