It used to be that when someone spilled hot coffee on their lap, they called themselves clumsy. Nowadays, they call a lawyer. America's win-the-legal-lottery mentality is humorously presented in Whiplash!, a compendium of the most outrageous real-life lawsuits ever concocted by greedy, legal minds.Whiplash! is guilty of humor targeting a court system out of control. Guided by legal sleazeball Tony Buttafony, Esq., chapter one: Lawsuits Made Easy hilariously demonstrates the finer points of spilling hot coffee on your lap and other techniques for cashing in, in court. The book also boasts the funniest legal jokes, most outrageous lawyer license plates, a legalese dictionary, and, of course, a caseload of comical lawsuits. You'll be the judge as you read true cases like the couple who sued after getting hit by a train while having sex on a subway track, or the man who sued a stripper after getting hit in the head by her breasts, and the criminal who sued his warden for a bad haircut. Whiplash! is fairly divided into twelve chapters that include ludicrous lawsuits about sex, medicine, advertising, sports, and celebrities. A great gift for law students and for the rest of us who have been waiting for a book that targets people we love to hate-lawyers!

"I'm gonna tell you all about it, Mom. I'm gonna tell it like I'm on the end of your bed, talking to you. I'm not gonna cover up, cause there's no need. You'll see how it's all a flippin miracle. The whole weird year. It's only one year in my life, Ma, but it's all the stuff you slept through when I was a kid. All the stuff you fished through when you got up. I'm warning you, Ma, this is the truth." Startling poetry in the grittiest of emotional word go ... raw, tender and laugh-out-loud Whiplash digs its nail into you from the funny - a kickarse gem of a book. Told with landscapes, Whiplash puts Farren on the map as a wordsmith of astonishing talent.

Whiplash is diagnosed so frequently that in the U.S. alone its annual cost is estimated at between 13 and 18 billion dollars. Up to 10 per cent of all whiplash "victims" are reported as permanently disabled. Andrew Malleson contends that whiplash is nothing more than a neck strain that heals in a matter of days or weeks and argues that medical and legal professionals foster and create illnesses by dangling illusive fortunes in front of would-be claimants. In an exposé of how some health care and legal professionals prey on the anxieties and greed of their clients, Malleson argues that whiplash is only one of a long list of largely fabricated illnesses and injuries – such as fibromyalgia, repetitive strain injury, chronic fatigue syndrome, occupational back pain, chronic pain syndrome, and post-traumatic stress disorder – that drain resources from the health care system.
