    Any lawyer of a certain age, any non-lawyer of a certain age, and most everyone else who enjoys a good story and has some sense about the 1970s should really enjoy this book. The protagonist embodies the smart, well-educated opportunist on the make who succeeded by being clever, lucky, and willing to look the other way when necessary. Levine captures the hedonism and hustle of that post-Vietnam, pre-AIDs era with vivid detail -- such vivid detail that we are left wondering to what extent this novel is really his own biography. The writing also captures a strong sense of place -- Manhattan and Miami in particular. In short, this is a fun, fairly fast read with much more substance than much of what passes for popular fiction these days.

    I haven't read anything like this since "The Catcher in the Rye." Like Holden Caulfield's coming of age, Michael Levitt's conflict, angst, cynicism and rebellious sprit permeates his attempt to find himself in a challenging and corrupt world. Certainly Levine's "The Corruption of Michael Levitt" is set in a different time and place than Salinger's masterpiece, but the feeling I was left with after finishing each book was very similar. Great novel for our generation.

    The most exciting book I have read in a long time. I could not put this book down once I picked it up. Michael Levitt is brilliant and charming and you can't help to want to know him. His energy is felt in every turn of the page.

    An extraordinary tale we can all relate to. The journey we travel with Michael Levitt is a great deal of fun with unique twists and turns throughout his memorable adventure.

    I was planning on keeping this book around and reading a little bit at a time, but I couldn't help but tear through the entire thing in a weekend. So while it sounds cliched, I cant think of a better way to describe this book than RIVETING (Well Ok, brilliant, insightful, funny, sexy etc. all work as well. Highly recommend it!!!!!!!!
