Format: Paperback
In her characteristic sarcastic wit and dry humor style, Judge Judy addresses some serious topics with this entertaining book. Bringing her perspective from many years of adjudicating Family Court issues, Ms. Sheindlin could qualify as a psychiatrist as much as she is a judge. Written in a "Dear Abby" format, Judy answers many letters apparently written to her regarding family disputes over the years; an interesting twist, though, is that you get to read both of the disputing parties view on the issues, with Judy then rendering her opinion and legal advice.
There is, however, a slight undertone of "male bashing" throughout which, although perhaps occassionally justified, gets a bit annoying, and leads me to believe that the intended audience for this book is largely female. But anyone concerned about the social ills afflicting family life in the US will benefit from Judge Judy's unique viewpoints and her genuine attempt to improve the current status quo. Judge Judy, you go girl!!!

You're Smarter Than You Look, by Judy Sheindlin is a very well-written book. Judge Judy talks about how we tend to complicate relationships during stressful times in our lives, and she gives good suggestions about how to avoid many situations before they become problematic.

Format: Paperback
This is one of those annoying cases where one book (otherwise known as Keep it Simple Stupid) is issued under 2 titles and the unwary purchaser can end up with the same book twice.
But in book terms this is a very readable little work covering all sorts of family issues. In each scenario the 2 protagonists (husband & wife, mother & teenage child or whatever) each put their case over an issue and Judge Judy delivers her opinion at the end

The book's on the button, as far as Judy's hyper-rationalism goes. She sure has assurance she's right, and my guess is she generally is. It's a bit short, as she doesn't have much to say. A bit like Strunk: 'Omit needless words!'. And she does. I wanted to get inside the head of one who thinks legal, and, yes, it didn't take long, about an hour, I suppose. I'd love to see Judy in a court waiting room dispensing advice: she'd clear the joint in 30 minutes, a good thing, too

I love her show and I enjoy her books also.I hope she continues to do her show and keep on writing her books. She is a woman with a lot of common sense and I think people would be better off if they listened to her.
