Absolutely Priceless Legal Guide This book is an asset to any person or organization wanting to better understand the law behind social media. Not only was Professor Houser one of the best Professors I had at APUS, I cite her book regularly as I train Managers and Leaders everywhere. This is truly a must read!!

Love this book! As a small business owner with a website, I’ve referred to this book many times. I can look up the question I have, I can read the answer and get a feel for how to handle different situations. It is so easy to understand! This is one of the few books I’ve read by an attorney who actually can explain things so that anyone can understand them. I highly recommend this book for anyone posting online or with a website.
