Amazon.com is a great
resource. Before Amazon, I made a trip to Seattle every year or so to look
for technical books. Now, Amazon makes it possible to get any book on any
subject, often at great prices. Here are some for SOHO lawyers.
The Lawyer's Quick Guide to
Word is an essential resource for anyone who uses Word. Many
of the "legal" features of Word are difficult to find. This book
shows them all. The Lawyer's Quick Guide series is very useful, and this one is
no exception. Here's some more:
this now. Big firm lawyer escapes and finds himself. Makes you feel
like you just graduated from law school, complete with all those long forgotten
ideals. Just click The
and see how easy it is to shop Amazon.com. Before long, you'll be an Amazon junkie like the rest of us.
a good example of what you can find on Amazon. The Lawyers Quick Guide to
Timeslips may just fill a need for you. Haven't read this yet, but I've
owned Timeslips for several months and haven't even installed it. Could
be time for me to buy a book.
Amicus Attorney in One Hour for Lawyers
Another in the ABA series. Brand new.
Amicus Attorney is such a powerful tool, yet difficult to master. It is the only
book of its kind I have found so far. If you know of Amicus books, drop me
a Law Practice on a Shoestring . This certainly sounds appealing, but I'm
not too sure about the title. What if you can't afford a shoestring?
The reviews at Amazon are very mixed on this one. Some love it; some hate
it. But wait, there's more!
Here are two invaluable how-to books. The Special Edition
series are my personal favorites. These are deep enough to be helpful to
anyone, yet also include the basics.
Using Corel WordPerfect
9 WordPerfect is my word processor of choice. The new version (
variously called 9 or 2000) is excellent. So is this book.
Using PowerPoint If you aren't PowerPoint savvy, you will be soon.
Everybody will use this technology. Get ready now. Then think about a projector. House of Projectors has about everything, and lots of info.
