Why do so many people hate lawyers? Read this to find out. Government bureaucracy getting in the way of good intentions - and who creates the red tape? Lawyers!

Very interesting book, written by a lawyer who knows what he is talking about.

The message conveyed by "Death of Common Sense" today is definitely considered Libertarian. Essentially the author makes a case for the removal of detailed laws to allow for personal responsibility to reassert itself. He notes that it is the public's fear of corruption that has led to a government whose actions are stymied by procedures. The book is a little dated now, notedly in the examples, but the topic is still current.

This was a surprisingly easy read. Very clearly details how our country, while trying to eradicate corruption, ended up creating a government so bogged down with rules and regulations that no one can even make a truly common sense decision! I enjoyed this book very much, I wish I had read it in high school!
