“Who needs a lawyer once you have Stephen Gold’s Breaking Law  to hand! An accessible, comprehensive guide to our legal rights. It’s an amazing achievement.”
Jon Snow, Channel 4 News


“Breaking Law is an amusing, entertaining, and incredibly useful book explaining how to make the law work for you, not against you. If you’ve ever wondered what a judge would say about any legal predicament you find yourself in, well here’s the answer!” 
Piers Morgan, broadcaster and writer


“Written clearly and with a real sense of fun, at last a text which strips bare the complexities of our legal system so you, too, can “survive without a lawyer”.....  Our Law, at last, accessible to us.”
Anna Botting, Sky News


"Fun to read but a vital source of knowledge if you are thinking of using the courts"
Justin Webb BBC Radio 4


"A master-class in civil procedure. Whatever your case is about Stephen Gold sets you on the path to winning or (since this is England) losing well. The specimen witness statement about the sale of 62 Wayne Rooney miniatures had me in stitches. A litigant in person would find it all very useful and the seasoned lawyer would learn something too. I did.”
Peter Thompson QC, General Editor of the Civil Court Practice (the “Green Book’) 

“A magnificent tome. A ‘must read’ for any student or lover or the law.”
Fred Dinenage, Television Presenter and writer

“An absolute *must* for someone who is suing, or being sued, and is doing it without a lawyer.”
Daniel Barnett, barrister and legal talk show presenter LBC

"This is unquestionably the legal book of the year if not the last decade. Make no mistake. This is a work of genius, produced by Stephen Gold, he of the invaluable NLJ “Civil Way” column.

"self-deprecating, funny, practical and wise" "A legal textbook that is genuinely funny? You are joking. Well, not if it is written by one of the best legal communicators of my lifetime. Stephen Gold has crammed in too much as a successful solicitor, district judge and prolific author to be restrained by convention. He writes as he speaks, self-deprecating, funny, practical and wise. ...."

"so full of useful stuff that it will be of great use to advisers as well as the advised. It includes information on costs, how to get legal help, limitation, and judgments and enforcement. Gold suggests that if you cross-examine a judgment debtor about their assets, you should ask them to empty their pockets first. Car keys, for example. It also includes the information that a guide dog is exempt from bailiff seizures (something I admit had never occurred to me)...."
