Book Summary:

Who says toys are just for kids? Remember the days when a dinosaur could have a conversation with a cowboy and everything was just fine? And then somewhere along the way someone suggested you put your action figures away and "grow up"? Yeah, well...you don't really have to do that. 'Cause toys are cool. Toy Confidential is here to set matters straight and reawaken your sense of childish wonder (along with maybe just a pinch of snark). Behold conceited unicorns, sarcastic dinosaurs, and surly mammoths! Witness insane interspecies antics acted out by toy bunnies, pretty kitties, and rainbow ponies! Meet a host of hapless super heroes, bumbling spacemen, melodramatic minotaurs and more! With more pop culture references than you can shake an Ewok at, Toy Confidential offers a return to childhood with better jokes. Ever wanted to see Jurassic Park only with skateboards? How about Scarface reenacted by cute pug puppies? Check and check. Grow up? Never!

Book Summary:

Late night comedians and journalists eagerly seized upon the case of an elderly woman who sued McDonald’s when she spilled hot coffee in her lap as a prime example of frivolous litigation. But as Rustad and Koenig argue, cases such as these are an incomplete and misleading characterization of tort law. Corporations have successfully waged a public relations battle to create the impression that most lawsuits are spurious, when in fact the opposite is true: tort law plays a crucial role in protecting consumers from dangerous and sometimes life-threatening hazards. Without legal remedies, corporations would suffer no penalty for choosing profits over public health and safely. In Defense of Tort Law is the first book to systematically examine the social, legal and policy dimensions of the tort reform debate. This insightful analysis of solid empirical data looks beyond popular myths about frivolous lawsuits, and tackles a variety of contentious issues: Should punitive damages be capped? Who is favored by tort law? Who loses, and why? Koenig and Rustad’s detailed case study analysis also reveals disturbing gender inequities in a legal system that is largely dominated by men. Because women are disproportionately injured by medical products, impermissible HMO cost cutting, medical malpractice and sexual exploitation, restrictions on the rights to recovery in these fields inevitably creates gender injustice. Engaging and up to date, In Defense of Tort Law also identifies aspects of the current law that require further elaboration, including the need for measures to combat cybercrime against consumers.
