I've saved the best for last; those books that are useful to any human being on the planet... Nolo Press, the kings of legal self-help, has a new edition of Nolo's.
Library Journal
This book digests information offered in many other Nolo Press titles. Chapters answer basic legal questions pertaining to estate planing, domestic relations, landlords and tenants, employment, small businesses, money management and debt, neighbor conflicts, elder law, and automobiles. Nolo's trademark style is present-plain English writing with useful lists of additional resources. The question-and-answer format forms the backbone of the book, and practical examples, explanations of legal principles, and useful tips appear throughout. Any library with a substantial collection of Nolo materials will find this to be redundant, but small collections looking for a general legal guide may want to add this latest offering.-Joan Pedzich, Harris Beach & Wilcox LLP, Rochester, N.Y.
