American readers have an almost insatiable appetite for all things legal. This is evidenced by the popularity of authors such as John Grisham and Scott Turow, as well as media tie-in novels based on popular courtroom television dramas such as "Boston Legal," "CSI," and "Law & Order." Blogger J. Craig Williams taps into that appetite in How to Get Sued , a witty look at the American court system. Aimed at the attorney or intelligent casual reader seeking some light diversion, this irreverent how-to is sophisticated enough to appeal to the average reader who enjoys sharp wit and some of the more bizarre twists the legal system takes without covering the humor with a thick layer of obscure jargon. It also, though, is helpful while being witty--and it tackles a subject that many pundits like to rail against: namely, our litigious society. From the top 10 ways to get sued to the unwritten rules for dealing with judges, author J. Craig Williams shines an irreverent light on America's court system. The author of the popular blog "May It Please the Court," Williams puts together a witty, accessible take on the world of litigation. Readers will walk away amused and enlightened, and with a better view of what the world of litigation is really like in America's courtrooms.
