Holiday Reading

posted by Bob Lawless

We get all kinds of visitors, from top experts in the field to neophytes looking for information, but I thought there was something for everyone on two recommended reading lists from Underbelly. I don't think I'm blowing his cover to note that Underbelly is written by Jack Ayer, a former bankruptcy judge turned law prof. At what was undoubtedly the pinnacle of his career, Ayer was even a Credit Slips guest blogger.

The first is a list of books he recommends to his students as general background reading in finance. The second list is background reading for his bankruptcy class. The original post linking to these two lists explains them both. If visitors have other reading recommendations related to bankruptcy and credit, please feel welcome to leave them in the comments.

For what it's worth, I find Underbelly to be one of the wittiest blogs around, including this post which still has me laughing. The pie chart has been been reported elsewhere, but leave it to Underbelly to put it in the right context.

  • As a public service, the University of Illinois College of Law operates Bankr-L, an e-mail list on which bankruptcy professionals can exchange information. Bankr-L is administered by one of the Credit Slips bloggers, Professor Robert M. Lawless of the University of Illinois. Although Bankr-L is a free service, membership is limited only to persons with a professional connection to the bankruptcy field (e.g., lawyer, accountant, academic, judge). To request a subscription on Bankr-L, click here to visit the page for the list and then click on the link for "Subscribe." After completing the information there, please also send an e-mail to Professor Lawless ([email protected]) with a short description of your professional connection to bankruptcy. A link to a URL with a professional bio or other identifying information would be great.
