From the Back Cover
Inside this book is another book - the strangest, most important and most dangerous book in the entire universe.
The Worshipful and Ancient Law of Gallifrey is one of the Artefacts, dating from dark days of Rassilon. It wields enormous power, and it must not be allowed to fall into the wrong hands.
