With “101 Things I Learned in Architecture School,” author-illustrator-architect Matthew Frederick found success to the tune of 300,000 copies in print. So he launched a series of “101” books. Six years later he’s hit his stride with “101 Things I Learned in Law School” and “101 Things I Learned in Engineering School” (Grand Central), co-authored with attorney Vibeke Norgaard Martin and engineer John Kuprenas, respectively. Quoting everyone from writer Anaïs Nin to furniture designer Charles Eames, they are fun reading for graduates and non-graduates alike. The handsomely produced volumes explain the principles underlying the two professions and offer good advice for everyday living, such as the lawyerly edict, “Always be the most reasonable person in the room.”
