Summary
Legal analyst Massi says that daily life and decisions are fraught with potential danger, and government mismanagement often has disastrous consequences for innocent, law-abiding citizens. Massi has heard countless stories of well-intentioned individuals getting caught up in damaging situations that they didn't see coming. He shares some of these stories and shows how to learn from them, to avoid falling for scams, getting entrenched in endless legal battles, and inadvertently ending up on the wrong side of the law. This guide covers the spheres of life that matter most: identity; love, family, and relationships; money, finances, and debt; your home; cars; work and business relationships; and final affairs.--From publisher description
