With his business and his life at risk, with plenty of enemies and few friends, he begins the grim process of preserving himself at all costs.
A raw portrait of the dark side of high-stakes civil-law practice, Book of Business is a frightening look at a shadowy world that many imagine but only true insiders ever see.

"Here is a refreshing new entry in the legal fiction landscape which matches the best: tension, high drama, revealing insights into large law office practice, and intrigue with surprises throughout. A splendid page turner for both lawyers and non-lawyers." (Jerome J. Shestack, Esq., Past President of the American Bar Association; Former Ambassador to the United Nations Commission on Human Rights)
"Lawyers everywhere will immediately recognize the unappealing characters in Book of Business. They haunt almost every law firm, and it's not a pretty picture. But that's what makes Will Nathan's book such an engrossing exercise in the 'there but for fortune... ' category." (Robin Meadow, Esq., Past President, Los Angeles County Bar Association)
"Book of Business will be read by some as a roman à clef, but its interest and the reader's enjoyment lie in its deeper yet always vivid reflections of the legal professiona and - from my perspective - the legal academy. If it makes other academic colleagues as uncomfortable with the mirror it has us face as it did me, it will have succeeded in one of its major goals without sacrificing our enjoyment of its lively story line." (Professor Richard M. Buxbaum, Jackson H. Ralston Professor of International Law, University of California at Berkeley School of Law)

"Great voice, great book"
I am picky but I really like this book. Surprising to hear a woman's voice convey so many charactors so distinctly and effortlessly. I highly recommend this audiobook.
Not your run-of-the-mill legal thriller, Book of Business gives the listener a true to life portrait of the high-stakes civil-law scene -- and it's not pretty. Gripping narration of a book with balls -- and that by a woman, no less.
