``This book should be on every folklorist`s and lawyer`s shelf, although the latter may want to put it in a plain brown wrapper.`` Jan Harold Brunvand, author of Be Afraid, Be Very Afraid: The Book of Scary Urban Legends ``I never realized how funny and serious lawyer jokes could be. Galanter does to lawyer jokes what freud did to jewish jokes in his classic Jokes and Their Relation to the Unconscious, but sometimes a good joke is just a good joke`` Alan Dershowitz, author of Rights from Wrongs ``Hilarious and philosophical at the same time, a nifty probe of the genre, regularly guilty of wise Humor.`` Carlin Romano, Philadelphia Inquirer ``Anyone who finds lawyer jokes humorous (including most lawyers) or has always wondered about how and why they became so popular will very much enjoy this ``lowering of the bar`.`` Alan J. Couture, Fore Word Magazine ``It is rare to find a book that skillfully weaves together empirical data, sociological analysis, and broad knowledge about the legal profession, in a pleasantly readable package that delivers multiple insights about contemporary legal culture in the United States. It is unique to find a book with all of these qualities that is also funny. Marc Galanter manages to pull off this feat in Lowering the Bar.`` Brian Z. Tamanaha, Law and Politics Book Review
