“The less people know about how sausages and laws are made, the better they sleep at night.”
This quote by Otto von Bismarck comes from an Italian book I recently came across – “Quando il diritto va a rovescio“, by Antonello and Marco Martinez, published by Sperling & Kupfer.

Not having yet read the book, I can’t give details of how the above was calculated, and indeed in the extract I saw, the authors specify that this is an estimation only, but it gives you the general idea… 😉
Here is the back cover blurb: “Due serissimi avvocati ci trascinano nella giungla delle norme e dei tribunali italiani. Un libro così impietoso da far morir dal ridere. Se non ci fosse da piangere.“
