About the Book

“[A] comprehensive and well-organized directory to areas of law that affect the average person’s everyday life.”—Booklist

What are your rights if the car you bought is useless? If your ex-boss refuses to let you take along your Rolodex? Who gets custody of the children after a divorce? Do you worry about laws governing your use of the Internet? What rights are accorded to the elderly, disabled, and other social minorities? How can you successfully sue in small claims court? Or write your own will?

The law pervades every individual's life, yet few know just what their rights are, how to use them, and what to do when they're violated. With expert assistance from Everybody's Guide to the Law, all your legal questions and concerns will be answered in simple everyday language that demystifies the law and arms you with the right information to make the best decisions.

While a host of Web sites and books claim to help you understand the law, this fully revised and updated edition of the essential home legal reference is your one-stop guide. Comprehensive, accurate, and with no hidden gimmicks or programs to sell you (unlike most online "resources"), this superbly readable, indispensable addition to any home library provides up-to-date and easy-to-understand practical legal information most people need to know.

Praised by critics and embraced by the public, Everybody's Guide to the Law remains the standard by which all other home legal guides aspire to, but have never managed to meet.
