Booklist Review

Predicted difficult economic times ahead will guarantee a demand for books about bankruptcy. In fact, bankruptcy has always been a regularly requested public library subject. Most books dealing with this topic are similar in content--they describe how to avoid bankruptcy, the various types of bankruptcy, and when and how to choose a lawyer. Most also include sample forms, which, for libraries, are both useful and problematic. Attorney Haman's book is no exception. His 70 pages of text include distinctions between Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcies and offer steps to take to avoid having to file for bankruptcy. Fifty pages of various forms with brief explanations follow. Haman's book is valuable because it is current and because it also includes a state-by-state listing of exemptions, that is, the property one is allowed to keep after filing for bankruptcy. Recommended for libraries needing to update their collections in this category. ~--David Rouse
