I laughed so hard I almost cried! Sadly I've been were some of the cases sighted went, and it was fun (at this time in my life) to be able to look back and LAUGH for the first time at both myself and the messes!
A must read even if you don't give two toots about the law!
The Epstein sisters are to be commended for the superb job they've done making complex ideas accessible and easy to grasp.
Bottom line - a very enjoyable read that leaves one with much to think about.
The authors have discovered how to bring the legal world to non-lawyers in an oft times humorous and interesting book. I recommend it to all who like to laugh while learning.
Amy is a nationally syndicated legal columnist and general counsel for The Judge Group, Inc., an international business solutions provider. She's been asked every question you can imagine and then some. Friends, relatives and employees go to her for a multitude of reasons, not the least being she doesn't charge them $200 per hour for a consultation. Her sister Robin is an author, stand-up comic and former sitcom writer. She convinced Amy she should write a book - that it would be incredibly useful for people who don't have a relative who's a lawyer. Robin is a television writer but she shares a love of the law with her sister. Together they wrote So Sue Me, JACKASS!
The book is divided into topics and written in a question and answer format that is easy-to-use and fun to read. The sisters offer sanity-saving legal advice that entertains while giving you peace of mind. I was hooked as soon as I started reading Chapter 1: Your Job - Hi Ho, Hi Ho, It's Off to Sell Your Soul to the Devil You Go! Amy answers such questions as - Is it illegal to make people work on National holidays? The short answer is NO. Or how about: Do you have any rights when it comes to a smelly coworker? Well, it depends where you work. The sisters offer some practical advice in case your town doesn't have an official policy for stinky employees. Boy, I could have used some of this advice in my previous life as a municipal drone. But even if the questions don't pertain to your life they're still informative and entertaining. The author's stories and humor make them a hoot to read. It's useful and fun and highly recommended.
There is a disclaimer. This book is not meant to be a substitute for getting your own lawyer should you need one. As Amy says "Let the very first piece of legal knowledge I bestow be this: He who acts as his own lawyer has a jackass for a client."
