“The best explanation of our system of law I ever read. Ease to understand and very comprehensive. Judge Smith managed to present very complex legal concepts in a simple and interesting manner.” – Manuel Munoz  
“What a delightful read! I enjoyed Judge Smith’s clear explanations, use of humor, and examples. The book is incredibly informative and refreshingly nonpartisan. Just read the chapter titles and you will be hooked. My favorite chapters were “Thanksgiving from a Most Unlikely Source, “ Ostriches and Blabbermouths Lose Cases,” and “Murder, Cannibalism, and Government Conspiracy.

My favorite chapters explained criminal justice and procedure and the process for selecting fair and impartial juries. The book is a quick read and I am hoping for a sequel!” – Terri Head
