Published: December 2009 & 2010

"This book can be consulted on a particular topic or read 
cover-to-cover. I read the book cover-to-cover and I recommend 
that any lawyer not already an expert in the field do so as well. 

"Unlike treatises where the writing style is impenetrable, 
Weintraub's prose is eminently readable."
