As a practicing California attorney, I found this book to be full of resources and information. I just cannot imagine a criminal defense attorney that finds a client (or potential client) in legal jeopardy to not be versed in this area of our legal system. since it is such an easy read, I think that anyone who finds a friend or family member charged with a crime, should also pick up this book to know the ins and outs of our bail system and many of the resources available. Lastly, I think it is just good information for everyone to have. Happy reading.
