Never have I ever read a book which has been so clear. As I am studying for my law qualification overseas this book has been both enlightening and entertaining. This book is an absolute must have for anyone who is even considering entering in to the study of law. What ever your choosen major may be Williams provides a clear description to the do's and don'ts of studying law. It is only a small book and the bottom line is, if you can only afford one book on the how to of law then this is the book for you.

No, I did not like this book. Why? Well, it is supposed to be for beginners but I feel the author is trying to show the reader how much he knows by first of all illustrating how dreadfully complicated it all is but look, don't worry, it all boils down to this really. Obviously, he could have just made it simple, a book for beginners - without cramming in his own personal accolade, And who cares what Lord so and so said about some obscure rule in some almost obsolete division of the justice system, He would keep harping on about what various Lords had said in the footnotes. Also, footnotes far too long, proving that large parts of the text were unnecessarily obscure. He tried to make out that some readers got really turned on to the law after reading his book, Unfortunately the opposite was true for me. Not really a very encouraging book. Can see why the prisons are possibly so overcrowded.

This _was_ the best book for a student strange to the law. It is now sadly very out of date. Please can we have a new edition?

NOTE: this review relates to the 11th ed. I haven't read the new adition I requested!

When I ordered the book it said very good condition. In my mind it is bad condition. All the covering is peeling off. Not what I was expecting
