Book summary

Like it or not, lawyers and politicians take part in our lives - and part of our wallets. In fact, the only thing we can have at their expense is a good laugh, which is exactly what The Official Rules for Lawyers, Politicians... and Everyone They Torment supplies. This scathingly humorous collection of laws, rules of survival, and biting truisms on law and politics is compiled from historical quotes and from the many "rules" sent to the author over the past twenty years from around the globe. Words to the Wise from The Official Rules: Callahan's Corollary: The key to success in politics is absolute honesty. If you can fake that, you have it made. Vidal's Conclusion: For certain people, after fifty, litigation takes the place of sex. Straus's Axioms: (1) Everything the government touches turns to solid waste. (2) After the government turns something to solid waste, it deregulates it and turns it into natural gas. Giffins Paradox: If it weren't for lawyers, we wouldn't need them. Incisively illustrated, this book will crack a smile on the most cynical among us. [via]
