I have most of the top books in this category, and this one was still a helpful addition. Rising provided us practical advice in depth worthy of the accomplished amateur. I appreciated the reinforcement about the common mistakes. What was most valuable was coverage of complex topics like land and court terminology. It's unfortunate Rising died before she could share more wisdom. ( )
