This book is the general practitioner's best available index to the Revised Code of Washington on many matters. For the general practitioner it also serves as a valuable and practical checklist on his daily activities, and its occasional comments about the history of a statute or the comparison with other jurisdictions give a sense of scope and background many of us lack. For the beginning lawyer this book is a valuable manual, designed to instill the same sense of confidence that advice from a more experienced lawyer would bestow. Indeed, the easy, almost conversational style of the book and its clarity and simplicity make one feel, after studying the treatment of a subject, almost as if one had enjoyed consultation with a more experienced and wiser confrere. The book is as rich with tidbits of practical information and helpful suggestions as a fruitcake.
