In The Practice, Tannebaum riffs on everything from asking yourself what type of lawyer you want to be, to the most effective way to market yourself in an industry where lawyers increasingly over-rely on social media to prove their relevance. It also discusses other important topics, including the proper way to handle referrals, rainmaking, reinventing yourself as a lawyer, personal branding, and much more.

This book offers a no-holds-barred "truth" about the legal profession in the author's honest and at times humorous signature voice. Readers will find clear and truthful advice on a wide range of topics that will help them become a better, and more informed lawyer.
