‘The CourtTV Cradle-to-Grave Legal Survival Guide’ is an excellent all-in-one reference for lawyers and consumers who want to know the basics about how the law affects us from birth to death.
By Erik J. Heels
First published 8/10/1998; LegalResearcher.com; publisher: New York Law Publishing Company.
Short and witty chapters cover such topics as Being Born (e.g. how to get a Social Security Number), Being a Kid (e.g. “Divorcing” your parents), Driving (e.g. drunk driving), Having Kids (e.g. adoption), Getting Divorced (e.g. child support), and Dying (e.g. euthanasia).
But this short list just scratches the surface of what’s inside this 30-chapter 500-page book. It is well laid out, well written, and includes a helpful index and glossary.
Excerpts are available on the Web (http://www.courttv.com/legalhelp/lawguide/), but buy the print version and you’ll find this book taking a prominent place on your bookshelf next to your dictionary and other popular reference books.
