We live in a litigious society. This is an unfortunate fact but is one we should never ignore. Law is not a topic that interests me a great deal but I found it prudent to at least have a basic understanding of what laws govern us (as they say: knowledge is power:)
Law for dummies is written in very "plain" English without any complicated "legaleze". It is a book for everyone as most of the "Dummies" series are. The range of topics covered is also extensive: from divorce to estate planning, consumer law, health care and employment law... you name it: it is here. Nothing is covered in extensive detail but the essentials are all here and this is what I was basically looking for. So if you are looking for an introduction to the law of the land, this could be the book for you.
