You and the Law Author:Reader's Digest This book is intended to provide basic but essential legal knowledge; to help save needless worry, trouble and expense. It will help you to understand the legal principles that underlie ordinary transactions-buying a house, or a TV, writing a check, getting married or divorced, taking out an insurance policy, joining a union, lending your car to... more » a friend, signing a lease-or hundreds of other activities.
The book is not intended to be a substitute for personal legal advice from a lawyer. Also, the book gives a general view of law from all over the U.S. Since many laws vary from state to state, there is no way the information can fit every person, every place, every time.
This book is from 1971. However, since only general legal principles are discussed, and not specific statutes, the information provided is useful and not particularly out of date.« less
