I checked this book out to do a college term paper on the 'Three Strikes Law' and was very disappointed. The authors are unclear in what they are trying to say, and I asked myself on several occassions, 'What does this have to do with the subject?' I wasted a lot of valuable time and now must rush out to find a book with information that pertains to the topic.
