1.0 out of 5 stars Don't be duped., 29 Jun 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Disorder in the Court: Great Fractured Moments in Courtroom History (Paperback)
I bought this book because when I was surfing the net someone had posted excerpts on their website purportedly from this book, collectively they were hilarious (like the one cited by the first reviewer, Feb 2001). There were about 20 examples and I laughed so much they had me in tears, but not so this book! Indeed, I couldn't even find the same examples.

Like reviewer Aug 2004, I feel I've wasted my money, especially by comparison to what I expected. There are some funny incidences but mainly it's just mildly amusing at best and at worst head-scratching as to why they've been included at all.

This book will give you an insight into the US legal process, but that's not the reason you buy it, you buy it because you're looking to laugh... and with the exception of a few incidences you'll still be looking by the time you've finished.

Perhaps there's an alternative universe somewhere with a book with the same name and by the same author and perhaps there it's funny......... here, it's just a wad of paper wishing it was still a tree.

You don't have to go to an alternative universe as the right book is right here in our own universe, just by a pair of different authors; Bob Terrell and Marcellus Buchanan. Look it up, it's listed here on Amazon.
