In concise and spritely written chapters this book lays out the basics of personal injury law in easily understood terminology. The law, with underlying theory, is spelled out for the reader with very recent cases (like Napster) to illustrate the key points. Applications reinforce the same points with memorable, and often witty, hypothetical situations. A detailed running glossary appears where legal terms are first introduced, eliminating the need to have a dictionary handy.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
