From Library Journal:

This book is a well-intentioned but misguided attempt to advise criminal defendants on how to represent themselves. Written in a breezy style by a former state prosecutor now in private practice, it takes readers from investigation through appeal. The only sample forms are a federal plea agreement and a chart of common courtroom objections. To supplement an attorney's specific advice, the book is not bad in that it tells suspects not to talk to the police or offend the judge. But it is not an effective replacement for an attorney, for it does not offer specific examples or stress the many perils of self-representation. Nor will it find a place in prison libraries, for it lacks sample motions to dismiss an indictment, suppress evidence, request a bill of particulars, and so on. An alternative choice is Paul Bergman and Sara J. Berman-Barrett's The Criminal Law Handbook (Nolo, 1997). Not recommended.?Harry Charles, Attorney, St. Louis
