Yesterday's e-mail brought five orders for the book, and the following kind note:
Just wanted to add my e-mail to those you've already received re Academic Legal Writing.
I bought your book and read it before law school and used it extensively my first year. I was selected for law review and have gotten rave reviews on my writing from my employer. I've even gotten an offer from my firm for employment after law school; I understand that's pretty rare for a 1L. They told me the primary reason for my early offer was my writing.
Thanks again for your excellent book; it's made a great difference in my legal career so far. I plan to recommend it to all the members of law review at my school.
P.S. Please feel free to publish this on your site if you'd like, but please remove my name if you do, because I mention employment details.
OK, now I promise to pipe down about the book for a while.
