This book is the bomb even if author Mark Kinzie is a piker.

As a former law student, I thought products liability was a bore. But this book brought it all to life. I laughed, I cried, I was elated. It's not just about toasters anymore!

PRODUCT LIABILITY LITIGATION was written for law students. The text was designed to provide black-letter law principles of Product Liability through the Restatement Third (1997) and interpretation of these principles through current, issue-specific court opinions. The text differs from traditional approaches to law because it does not simply reprint case law. Instead, the topic is taught through a collection of Restatements, statutes, regulations, law review articles, case studies, and practice materials to give the student the basic parameters of Product Liability. We then expand those parameters through the interpretation given by court opinions, treatises, and law reviews. In each chapter the student is given essential elements, historical development, Restatement principles, a fact synopsis of each case, cites to additional materials, case notes, and case problems. Unique problems with food, component parts, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, used products, handguns, tobacco, and post-sale obligations of manufacturers are considered in Chapter 6. Practical approaches to product liability litigation are considered in Chapter 7. Enjoy.
