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.
