5.0 out of 5 stars Look beyond the seemingly boring exterior, 13 Jun 2007

This review is from: Utilitarianism and Other Essays (Classics) (Paperback)
As a student I am naturally skeptical to spending six pounds fifty on one purchase, but this has been worth it.

I enjoy mulling over Jurisprudence and philosophy and this book has made me aware of some of the most influential and famous legal models and philosophical views. But all credit should not go merely to Bentham and Mill, whose thoughts and analysis produced the backbone of the topic but also to Alan Ryan, whose incredibly well written introduction enlightened me to, and taught me a substantial part of, the concepts within the book. Ryan relates all the concepts and models to everyday situations which makes everything so digestible and understandable. The entire book is also less verbose and less wordy than I expected it to be.

All in all, a very good read for anybody interested in Jurisprudence, Philosophy or Law. Excellent read.
