About the Author
By day, Mike Chase is a white collar criminal defense lawyer. By night, he's the legal humorist behind the @CrimeADay Twitter feed, where he offers a daily dose of his extensive research into the curious, intriguing, and often amusing history of America's expansive criminal laws. Mike's work has made him the go-to commentator on the countless weird and esoteric federal criminal laws buried deep in the books: he's been a featured guest on American Public Media's The Uncertain Hour, published in The Wall Street Journal, and more.

Now Mike Chase provides us this book which is not a summary of that project, but a Law Book like manual on the many absurd ways one can run afoul of federal criminal statutes. The writing is incisive and hilarious, and the many illustrations are even better. You can read it cover to cover or, like the Holy Scriptures, just open to a random page and be inspired.
After laughing to the point of tears, your tears will run from the well of despair as you discover the parlous state of our criminal laws and the excess of government regulation. And if you think that is an exaggeration, just read about the Laws on Fruit Cocktail content, pp. 118-19, fig. 4-17.
This would be just a book of humor if it were not for the fact that thousands of people get snared by these ridiculous traps.
Mike Chase deserves a Medal of Honor for so skillfully displaying the absurd state of government and especially the criminal laws in these days. But that might only encourage the Government.
This book is worth every penny you spend, and probably more. Everyone should read this, especially you legislators who think you have just the law to fix what you do not like.
As a regulatory attorney I found this book to be hysterical for so many reasons. It’s a lighthearted and well done book that will simultaneously make you love and hate the law (and lawmakers) with equal vigor.
