   Excellent! This book saved a life!
I sent this to someone who is currently incarcerated in jail. The text of this book saved his life. But he pressed on, educating the authorities of his civil rights while referencing this book. He was able to manage any time through the system for appropriate medical treatment. An emergent procedure was performed in the nick of time at a neighboring hospital.
   Must Have for Civil Rights Attorneys
If you are an attorney who is even thinking about being involved in a prison case, you need to get this book. It is well annotated and covers just about any issue that you might encounter. If it does not give you the answer, it will at least give you a comprehensive overview and enough cases to get your research in the right direction. At this price, there is simply no excuse to not have this book on your shelf.
   ~ Not A Victim ~ A Villain ~ You Choose With This Book ~
This is one of my favorite books and I've owned every issue. Not just a book, a weapon against what can be an overwhelming oppressor in the form of government or individuals at times. The US courts are a good place to play without a script and this is your best starting script... Remember that when you use this manual, you don 't have to win to get what you want... Life is good and when you don 't have to grind your teeth on injustice, it is better. KG is a Swiss company, specialized in creating and selling high quality products.
   The prison is threatening my fiance with a write up if she tries to pick it up from property
I wrote it, I sent it to my fiance at the Denver Women's Correctional Facility, but they threatened her with a write up if she went to their property to get it. Still trying to get her to be able to get it. Another example of a prison not breaking the rules, but helping people who break the rules to gain a part of their lives.
Purchased for someone in a pre-trial facility and they said that the book is very good, but has a lot of really big information.
