An entertaining and thought-provoking book which offers a lot of good suggestions about dealing with people, raising kids with responsibility for their actions, and basically just getting along in everyday life. Wither you're a fan of Judy's show or not, this book is well worth reading.
Long before she was a TV judge, Judy Judy was a New York family court judge. She is a firm believer that everyone should be held accountable for their actions. In this book she cites court cases to support her views that the legal and social services systems of this country need major renovations and that in their current state they promote irresponsibility, fraud and cover-ups.
I really enjoyed this book as I totally agree with her views that the legal system is too quick to allow criminals to play the "I was the victim" role. We have a system that will allow such excuses as "I ate too many Twinkies or I did not get the respect I was owed" to factor into sentences for crimes.
This was an excellent book! Although some of the cases in the book made me angry, I was definitely glad that I read this book. She has some very practical advice too. Very interesting to say the least.
