KIRKUS REVIEW

This is a refreshingly novel approach to the usual dry-as-dust subject of law. I really had a lot of fun with it, and found it a treasury of legal lore through bits and scraps of human drama. Fascinating-comprehensive (I found the ommission of matters pertaining to taxes and the law the only conspicuous lack). But all the things that touch our daily living were there, and all made comprehensible through the stories in which the facts were embodied. There is a game element too, in the problem stories at the end of each chapter -- (with the answers, cleverly enough not arranged in exact order).
