Review of Books, Crooks and Counselors by Leslie Budewitz
Although I found no disclosure requirement in the law, I wouldn’t want you to dismiss this review with prejudice or to feel that I was negligent, so in the interest of full disclosure I admit that I had high hopes for Books, Crooks and Counselors by mystery writer and attorney at law Leslie Budewitz even before I read it. Still I allege this review is as much pro bono as pro se.
Books, Crooks and Counselors won the 2011 Agatha Award for the best non-fiction award of the year. It is a 2012 Anthony and Macavity Nominee. I considered those “solid clues” whether or not a court would accept them as evidence. But after reading the book, I can recommend it ipso facto. Albeit the author covered a wide range of legal procedures and definition, nevertheless in the process she included examples of the concepts discussed which kept things interesting. For real fun you can watch the latest movie of the week legal thriller while thumbing through the book and counting up the mistakes.
Of course checking your own work before you present it to anyone else can help you avoid making those same embarrassing errors.
