Great guide for young adults Jun 14, 2007
This is an excellent guide for students and other young people in the great state of Texas. It gives some great advice on dealing with the law and how to handle things like traffic stops. It also gives great advice on having successful parties (meaning no cops)! Very useful. Check it out.
Author is a genuine authority / Must read for any student age 15+ Jun 3, 2007
I have known the author of this book for over 30 years and can attest to the fact that he is a bonafide authority on this subject. As a high school and college classmate, he showed us all how to take it to the edge but stay out of trouble (well, OK, maybe we got into a little bit of trouble). Now, as a well educated and highly respected Texas lawyer, he knows the ins and outs of the Texas criminal justice system and how it could affect a young person if they take things too far.
In this book, he shares valuable information on how to have fun while partying safely, how to avoid or handle difficult situations with authorities, and exactly what to do should you ignore the aforementioned and get into trouble with any of the fine, hard working and distinguished law enforcement officers in the great State of Texas. In today's troubled world, every student age 15 or above needs to read this book, and every responsible parent should make sure that they don't ship their kids off to college in Texas without it. Unless, of course, you are looking forward to that 3 a.m. phone call.
