Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Very good price as compared to hiring a lawyer. Provides very good simple illustrations and examples to help you defend yourself or begin your own law suit without hiring a lawyer. All required court forms are also illustrated and can be used as templates. This book is a must for people who desire to be a Pro Se Litigant (representing yourself). Regardless, much of the work needed to be an effective Pro Se Litigant lies on your shoulders alone, however, this book provides knowledge regarding necessary preparation.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book like most attorneys makes a big effort to get you to settle your case before going to Court.
It provides for a general summary of how things works but does not provide the legal forms which are customarily used in legal Court proceedings.
Also, because it was not purchased direct from the NOLO website, they did not offer the additional support which is offered by the NOLO tech support. Had I purchased it directly from NOLO I'm sure the additional support and answers to my questions would have been beneficial.
