Middle of the road book. There were some stories that were pretty funny. I feel that a lawyer would really get a big kick out of this one. What if you could take your favorite nursery rhymes and stories and translate them into court speak and depositions. Some situations are pretty funny.

The first couple of stories were cute. After a while however, the premise gets boring. I mean, unless you had some vested interest in reading a law suit, how many of them would you be willing to read?

It is entertaining, and I would recommend this book...but it certainly did not "Wow" me. ( )

Amusing, but the author is almost too good at what he's doing. The legalese made my eyes glaze over between laughs. Very clever idea, though. ( )
