For adults who are just starting home ownership, or about to move into their first neighborhood, this is a good book to introduce you to the legal aspects of being a neighbor. While some of the book looks at dealing with issues, it also talks about resolution and responsibility. Read full review

User Review  - masterdeski - LibraryThing

Very good book for non-local-specific info about what is legal / illegal, and what you might be able to do about it. Definitely recommend investigating local laws before taking any action. Lots of 'glad that's not me!' reactions. Well-organized. Read full review
