I thought the ABA article was an excuse to fill a summer issue of the magazine with glossy photos, but not much substance. I've practically quit reading the magazine after Steven Keeva, author of Transforming Practices, stepped down as the editor.

Great list of books, but I got to agree not really what you expect from the ABA journal.
