I was hoping to like this book because I support indie authors and I am always interested in works that examine the workings of the legal system. However, I found myself disappointed on both counts.

interesting but also a bit intense and maybe convoluded. I'm not doubting this is based off of real events but it's written in such a way to make it seem that this is the majority

While this book had some good insight for dealing with CPS, the lack of a quality editor reduced the overall value of the book. I would recommend hiring one, then I would rerelease it.
