Unsettled by the effect that the first semester of law school has had on his personality, Turow slides into a gradual indifference during his final few months as a 1L. While the memoir remains engaging, the protagonist grows increasingly bland, unwilling to emotionally invest in a system that he believes has done him wrong. Turow is contrite in the final pages, admitting that he had earned decent grades after all, but was changed for the worse.
While the memoir is entertaining—and indeed, instructive—its end is utterly disappointing. Turow blames the changes he observed in himself and in his classmates on the HLS system.

Each September, a new crop of students enter Harvard Law School to begin an intense, often gruelling, sometimes harrowing year of introduction to the law. Scott Turow agrees that the students are splendid, but he strongly dissents from the common estimate of the soundness of the course of study and the quality and virtue of the professors.
