Let's start with the format of the book. The 'Text, Cases and Materials' (text)book format is quite helpful to a student studying law. Despite the proliferation of Internet access (hence negating one of the benefits of having the cases embedded within the book itself), the cases and materials offer the student a starting point, a launch pad, if you will, for further research on topics.
A short summary of the chapter is found at the beginning of each chapter, and guiding questions at the end of each section within the chapters.
On to the content – it's insightful and peppered with succinct yet perceptive analysis of the embedded materials, highlighting the key portions of each argument, and perhaps contrasting it with another position (by an author or a case) on the same issue.
Public Law can be dry at times, but this book facilitates the interest of the student and is greatly accessible to those who are struggling with the subject.
Definitely worth purchasing. Props to the authors and the publisher of this book for releasing the book digitally as a print replica on the Kindle store.
