The Excuse Factory: How Employment Law is Paralyzing the American Workplace

"Olson shows how the U.S. has created a nightmare of contradictory regulations that would humble Kafka. And he does it with the drama of a detective novel .... If [the] winds of freedom ever loosen the government's ever-tightening grip on America's employers, The Excuse Factory will surely deserve some of the credit." � David Henderson, Fortune

Walter K. Olson, Senior Fellow, Manhattan Institute (The Free Press, June 1997)
