Books About the Law

But one type of book that practically nobody likes to read is a book about the law. Books about the law are notorious for being very long, very dull, and very difficult read. This is one reason many lawyers make heaps of money. The money is an incentive--the word "incentive" here means "an offered reward to persuade you to do something you don't want to do"--to read long, dull, and difficult books.
