I’ve often said that money is gone once it’s spent, but a victory can be savored forever. In The Sex.Com Chronicles I share my victories and defeats, and the lessons I learned from both, but an e-Book is just a bundle of electrons until somebody cracks that digital cover and jumps into the flow of the narrative. So I want readers to download, read, and enjoy!
Tucson, AZ (PRWEB) December 7, 2009
Know an aspiring lawyer who needs a good free book to read for the Holidays? If they’re one of the more than 60,000 aspiring lawyers who took the LSAT in September, they’re in luck! With one click, they can receive a free e-Book edition of the popular cyberlaw legal thriller, The Sex.Com Chronicles, A White-hat Lawyer’s Journey to the Dark Side of the Internet. Author Charles Carreon, the respected trial lawyer who won the notorious Sex.Com case, says anyone who took the September 2009 LSAT can download a free copy from the book website – http://sex.comchronicles.com/lsat-ebook.
In his book, Carreon, who styles himself a “cyberlawyer” and says, “nowadays all law is cyberlaw,” urges young lawyers to prepare for their legal careers by learning the traditional rules of advocacy, and “the fundamentals – civil procedure, torts, criminal law, corporations, and contracts – it’s a whole new legal world out there, but the old rules of trial by combat and proof through the adversary system still apply.” Carreon, a trial lawyer with 22 years of experience, says The Sex.Com Chronicles “is drawn from real experience, and includes transcripts of crucial cross-examinations and dispositive courtroom arguments, so readers can understand how good lawyers put legal theory into practice.” Asked whether the presentation style was too technical for the average reader, he answered, “Well, I tried to follow the advice, attributed to Einsten, to make things as simple as possible, but not simpler. I also had some great real-life characters to work with, who produced interesting dialogue that the court reporters wrote down word-for-word, which made it easier to put together a pretty smooth read.”
Reviews plucked from Amazon, where the book has received a number of five-star ratings, seem to agree:
“An intriguing story that takes you down the rabbit hole of legal machinations … a well written account of how an extraordinary battle shaped the history and development of the internet for commercial use.”
“A scintillating true story combining sex, money, evil, and high powered legal maneuvering written with the clarity of Hemingway and the sly wit of Tom Wolfe.”
“This is a sensational book that keeps the pages turning.”
“Carreon fills big shoes as he stands and delivers.”
Asked why he’s giving his book away to LSAT-takers, Carreon said, “Aspiring lawyers should understand that lawyering is warfare, and that as lawyers, it’s their job to battle over property, freedom, and life itself. My goal in writing The Sex.Com Chronicles was to bring that battle to life in the mind of the reader, and I’m pleased to say that many of my colleagues tell me I achieved it.”
So why give it away free? Carreon answered with a laugh -- “I’ve often said that money is gone once it’s spent, but a victory can be savored forever. In The Sex.Com Chronicles I share my victories and defeats, and the lessons I learned from both, but an e-Book is just a bundle of electrons until somebody cracks that digital cover and jumps into the flow of the narrative. So I want readers to download, read, and enjoy!”
