    GREAT BOOK

    I have been representing myself in my own Workers' Compensation Claim. Without this book I would have never known where to begin, because I have no experience with laws nor did I have a clue on my rights as an injured worker. I have done well thus far and even Appealed my case and won! Many thanks go out to the writer.
