Amusing, humorous, and informative readJan. 2 2005
- Published on Amazon.com
I found Dracula was a Lawyer (underline that) to be extremely entertaining humorous, and not to mention informative. This compilation of facts concerning proffessions dealing with the law and the law itself often pokes fun at not only attorneys and lawmakers, but those who make use of them, i.e. moronic lawsuits and things of this nature. Despite the title, the book does not take a harsh prejudice against attorneys, and many of the facts actually glorify the profession rather than painting them as vampires. In fact, I didnt understand the use of Dracula in the title, because technically he was a lawyer, but only in the sense that any other absolute ruler would be in that they are in essence the lawyer, judge, jury and executioner. I thought this was a rather weak basis to title the book, especially when the book does not make a point to paint attorneys with the image of vampires, but rather takes an unbiased motive to simply display facts. But this not withstanding, the book was, as I said, very entertaining and I very highly recommend it to anyone interested in or dealing with the law, or someone looking for a pretty quick amusing read.
