It has definitely earned a place on my desk as I find myself referring to it often as questions regarding my work come up. At the very least it is helpful when aiming to educate yourself before the need to consult an attorney arises and in some instances eliminates the need completely-- saving you time and money!
The best thing about this book is that it includes exactly what words to use in legal author matters such as do it yourself wills and letters, as well as many sources on legal questions for authors, including websites that are helpful. While all the answers to my questions were not answered in this one book, it is an invaluable reference book for understanding many of the legal issues that authors face in the publishing industry.
