This whopper of a book is a joint tour de force from the creators of Court TV and the editors of The American Lawyer magazine. This dream team demystifies the complexities of the American legal system by using an approach that is chatty, informative, and far from patronizing.Hundreds of legal quandaries are discussed, from obtaining a Social Security number to breaking a lease to making a will. What distinguishes The Court TV Cradle-to-Grave Legal Survival Guide from more scholarly tomes is its down-to-earth language, and an emphasis on the human side of the law. The authors focus on the fictional life of the Goodfriend family--Grace and Gordon, and their four kids. The Goodfriends are touched by every conceivable aspect of the law--driving without insurance, sexual harassment, divorce, adoption, immigration. The authors examine the legal consequences of each scenario and explain what to do, what to expect, and what to say. A no-nonsense table of contents splits the law into palatable pieces that are easy to digest--Driving, Buying and Selling a Home, Getting Married, Getting Divorced. A glossary of legal definitions, dozens of contact numbers, and a terrific analysis of the American Constitution will help readers navigate their way through and out of the legal jungle. --Naomi Gesinger
