Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
This book focuses almost exclusively on personal or so-called ``straight'' bankruptcy under Chapter 7 of the Bankruptcy Code, and excludes detailed consideration of Chapter 13 repayment plans. The authors, all lawyers associated with Nolo Press, provide step-by-step information necessary to determine whether or not, and how, to file. Included are worksheets, examples, and illustrative filled-in forms. Although not stated, this volume is apparently intended by Nolo to replace Janice Kosel's perennial Bankruptcy: Do It Yourself , which has a California emphasis; however, it will complement her Chapter 13: Federal Plan to Repay Debts (Nolo Pr., 1987. 3d ed.). The present work is more up-to-date than Benji Anosike's How To Declare Your Personal Bankruptcy Without a Lawyer (Do-It-Yourself Pubs., 1983), and although less comprehensive than the excellent Consumer Bankruptcy Law and Practice (National Consumer Law Ctr., 1988 . 3d ed.), which is intended for lawyers but useful for laypersons, this is a best buy to support a commonly asked legal reference question. Recommended for public and academic libraries.-- Merlin Whiteman, Indiana Univ. Sch. of Law, Indianapolis
