The book was written to demonstrate the lighter side of an otherwise serious profession of being a judge in Virginia. And it was written so people may better understand some of the things that occur in court in the Commonwealth.

This is a fun read to pick up and be entertained by. You can read through it entirely or read it in short snatches and come away laughing every time. The author is even more humorous telling the stories in person. Because he is a fellow Southside Virginian, I found myself relating to the lingo and characters in a very real way.

This was written by a local retired circuit court judge. The stories he told were a collection of things he heard in the courtroom and people he knew. I did not find it very funny at all.

Hilarious recounting of some days in court! As Art Linkletter used to say, "People are funny!" Quick read and many good laughs!

A great read for outlandish stories of a judge who spent more than 30 years on the bench.
