    I was hoping to like this book because I support indie authors and I am always interested in works that examine the workings of the legal system. However, I found myself disappointed on both counts. First, Legally Kidnapped is full of grammatical errors, misspellings and awkward style. I think Morales would have benefited greatly from the involvement of an editor. We indies can't be expected to wield the influence of a traditional publisher, but we should be held to the same standards of quality.

We indies can't be expected to wield the influence of a traditional publisher, but we should be held to the same standards of quality. Unfortunately, this book under-performs in this regard. Second, Morales refers to a few studies here and there, but he never interviews other CPS staffers who echo his concerns, nor is the hard data and scholarly research sufficiently compelling to support the conclusion that the only way to reform Child Protective Services is to end it. That's quite a case to make, and I don't think the author makes it, particularly when he asserts that the state "steals money" to "kidnap" children. That's hyperbole -- CPS is funded by taxation and guided by law, both of which are established via the democratic process -- and it undermines the very serious point Morales is trying to make. Given more rigorous research and a good editor, Legally Kidnapped could be a formidable work, but for now I just don't think it makes the grade.

    As mentioned in previous reviews, there are plenty of typos and grammatical errors; an editor is needed. However, if you can look past the lack of professional writing, there is a lot of valuable information contained in this book. I plan on passing it on to a social worker friend to get his take on it. Every parent, in my opinion, should know what to do in case CPS comes knocking on their door. This book, though far from perfect, is a good first step. I hope someone expands on the premise in th As mentioned in previous reviews, there are plenty of typos and grammatical errors; an editor is needed.

    Eye opening this was very helpful and empowering. the book reveals a good amount of information otherwise closed to mainstream. I would recommend this book to parents who veer from the norm in any respect - especially homeschool families.

    I found some of the info about the agency interesting, but it turned out to be more of a "How to fight the agency" manual. I found some of the info about the agency interesting, but it turned out to be more of a "How to fight the agency" manual.

    This book was super informative, but desperately needed a proofreader and editor.

    Thank you for speaking out! We need you! Thank you, Could you please make an audio version for the reading and vision impaired and possibly free on YouTube for the severely impoverished? Could copies in more languages also be made available?

    While I understand the author's need to tell all about this failed system, I was quite disappointed that he did not share some of his experiences when working with the CPS.

    Wonderfully filled with informative material that really makes you feel like you understand the process of this nightmarish reality for some.

    While this book had some good insight for dealing with CPS, the lack of a quality editor reduced the overall value of the book. I would recommend hiring one, then I would rerelease it.
