Nobody's Bitch

....No, not me. Stick a bottle of Johnny Walker and a big fat retainer on my desk and I'm all yours. Nobody's Bitch is the title of a book written by a former colleague of mine about his years at a certain NYC law firm I know and love well. Mr. X lives by two principles: (1) life should be an adventure, and (2) he's nobody's bitch. Guess how well those principles serve you if you want to succeed at one of the world's biggest law firms? Especially if, underneath it all, you're just a lonely guy looking for that someone special to do word jumbles with. Not.

You can check out some excerpts here. I know I'll never quite feel the same way about warm, soapy showers again.
