This book is like a well written, always available, don’t-need-to-buy-coffee-to-get-an-answer resource for office hardware and software for both PC and MAC environments. This book is just under 0.5 inches thick but packed with specific hardware (brand and model) and software (title and version) information that serves as a solid recommendation or at least a starting point to find products that meet the needs of your office. Chapter topics include office equipment (e.g., computers, their operating systems, keyboards, printers, and scanners), networking (e.g., servers and their operating systems, firewalls, routers, etc.), smartphones (probably my favorite chapter as an iPhone 6 user considering a switch), and back office software (case management, security, time/billing, document management and assembly). Very specific. Analysis and evaluation from a lawyer’s perspective. This is one of those books that will still be relevant in five years but that is a must-have copy now. The last chapter is an interesting look at the possible future of legal technology and the impact of artificial intelligence (5 pgs), cryptocurrencies (4 pages) and automation (2 pages). While not a book about the future, I found the insights helpful and imminently practical (“Will Microsoft Quit Producing Surface Hardware?”).

I am always skeptical about technology guides like this, which often seem outdated or out-of-touch. But this book is neither. To the contrary, it is the rare book that provides concise, helpful information to solo and small firms about ways to assure that they utilize the best technology for their offices. Because I wear many, I see the issues in these firms. As an attorney, we deal with them in our office. As a consultant, my clients wrestle with the need to balance the need for technology with the cost of doing so. It is nice to have a handy, easy-to-read book like this for them. While I do not agree with every recommendation in the book, I believe it is a good starting point. As a member of the ABA Publishing Board that approved the book, I am also pleased to see how current it is as well. But perhaps the book's greatest value is its use as a checklist. It is easy to overlook the need for one or more of the items discussed in the book. But if you simply use the Table of Contents as a checklist, your office can be confident it is addressing the issues facing every law firm.
