1. The book is easy to read, there are certain books where you have to like google at least one or two words a page or sometimes more but this isn't the case here.
2. This is a layman's book for sure like it's very basic.
3. The book references certain cases, and brings in good logical examples to bring out laws. Like for example the book uses a McDonalds coffee case to explain the importance of tort law.
1. My #2 pro is also a con, this book is a layman's book to a fault, i'm taking an intro to law class right now and i've learned more in that class then I have from this book. This is a rather subjective comment though I guess. Some people look for a book that is simple, quick, and can brief them a bit on a subject. If you're like me however, where you look to learn entire concepts, ideas, and subjects from books you choose to devote time to read then this is a negative. Not to mention the book is called "everything you need to know about American Law" but in all honesty it's actually more of an intro to to general law book.
Conclusion: this is a good read if you're looking for something quick, brief, and that can give you the basics. Like I said this is essentially an intro to law book. AN intro to law book is everything you need to know if you aren't pursuing a field or career in this area. But if you are it's not.
