  • Managing Partner 101. Robert Michael Greene.  Well written book on firm leadership. If you make partner in a firm of fifteen or more attorneys (the target audience is firms of 75 to 200 partners), this book is worth taking the time to read and understand. Greene writes in a clear, literate style and the book is only 69 pages long.

  • Marketing Without Advertising by Michael Phillips & Salli Rasberry. This book actually appreciates that advertising is necessary and appropriate in some cases, but explains the underlying concepts that create and nourish a marketing plan.  It is especially useful for professionals.
