51AWxyv-23L._SX322_BO1,204,203,200_My book about law and lawyers, “Way Worse then Being a Dentist,” has been referred to quite often as “indispensable,” “a classic” and, of course “required reading” for lawyers, potential lawyers, future lawyers and their friends, neighbors and the people who love them.

But, naturally, there’s “required reading” and then there’s…required reading. And now I’m both.

The lovely and talented Martin Underwood, of Life Productions, in London, UK has placed me right smack at the top of his “bibliography” in the handbook for his “More Than Law” course for lawyers looking to career transition.

If you’re interested in learning more about Martin’s coaching and the course he offers through Life Productions, click here. Martin’s a clever guy, a former barrister with an Oxford degree and a winning smile, and I can’t imagine a few weeks spent doing what he tells you would be time badly spent.

If you’d like to place a toe in the water, you might check out a webinar we recorded together a few months back.  That was loads of fun – and you can listen to it here.

At very least, I would strongly recommend you tackle the list of suggested reading, starting right at the top: Screen Shot 2015-08-31 at 8.47.39 AM

If the post above wasn’t enough to convince you…here’s another enthusiastic exhortation to please check out The People’s Therapist’s legendary best-seller about the sad state of the legal profession: Way Worse Than Being a Dentist: The Lawyer’s Quest for Meaning

And…my first book is an unusual (and useful) introduction to the concepts underlying psychotherapy: Life is a Brief Opportunity for Joy

My latest book is a comic novel about a psychotherapist who falls in love with a blue alien from outer space. I guarantee pure reading pleasure: Bad Therapist: A Romance

dan_avatar_small (1)My friend, Dan Lukasik, who created the Lawyers with Depression website, asked me to post some information on his up-coming webinar, on Friday, February 7th, 2014 at 3 p.m. (E.S.T.), for lawyers with depression. I’ll let Dan take it from here:


Are You a Lawyer Who Has Problems Getting Things Done When Depressed?

If you’re a lawyer who struggles with depression, you’re not alone. Studies show that lawyers suffer from depression at a rate twice (20%) that of the general population. When put in perspective, that means that 240,000 of this country’s 1.2 million lawyers are struggling with depression right now.

These findings are not about sadness, the blues or even burnout, but true clinical depression. According to the Mayo Clinic, to be diagnosed with major depression by a health care professional you need to have some of the following symptoms most of the day, every day:

Feelings of sadness, emptiness or unhappiness
