A memoir inspired by the popular anonymous blog presents a lawyer's drunken and debauched strategy for surviving inside the American legal system, in a work that satirizes office culture, exposes fraudulent practices that mark his profession, and describes his hedonistic nightlife. 25,000 first printing.


“I was fired from my first legal job within a month, and this book explains why it was the best thing to ever happen to me.”
—Tucker Max, author of I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell


The anonymous author who calls himself “The Philadelphia Lawyer” is an enormously popular blogger with an enthusiastic online fan base. With Happy Hour is for Amateurs, he brings his hilarious, biting, spot-on rants, revelations, and remembrances to the printed page. Part Office Space, part Howard Stern—with a bit of Bukowski thrown in for good measure—Happy Hour is for Amateurs is a drunken and debauched tour through the courtrooms, bars, and bedrooms of the American legal system. As The Philadelphia Lawyer’s subtitle so succinctly puts it, “Work Sucks. Life Doesn’t Have To.”
