Praise for The Lawyer's Guide to Working Smarter with Knowledge Tools

"This book is a first rate primer on knowledge systems for lawyers. On each page, it exhibits the extensive practical experience and deep conceptual insight of its author. Crucially, it is written with a jauntiness and a lightness of touch that render it entirely accessible to all lawyers."
--Professor Richard Susskind, author, The End of Lawyers?

"This is mandatory reading for anyone considering game-changing technology applications with high impact on day-to-day legal practice. From document assembly to decision-assistance, Marc Lauritsen opens the doors to meaningful technological change."
--Dennis Kennedy, author, The Lawyer's Guide to Collaboration Tools and Technologies
