The Death of Common Sense

This popular book, the first by corporate attorney and tort reform proponent Philip K. Howard, details many cases in which overly restrictive rules make it impossible for people to comply with government regulations. Howard shows the effects of such laws when, instead of ensuring that people act properly, they hinder people from acting at all.

Philip K. Howard, Partner, Covington & Burling (Random House, 1994)
