It's also a very enjoyable read. I highly recommend it.
I'm not sure how useful it would be to a writer outside of the United States, because it's very American in context. However, it does point you in the direction of questions you would need to ask about the similarities/differences in the various laws of your country of choice.
Ultimately, though, I found it incredibly interesting as a book about PIs, and not so much as a writing resource.
