4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent reading, but more work needed., 3 Dec 1999
By A Customer
This book is essential reading for all lawyers. Professional support and information specialist will find it particularly useful.
Both Nick Holmes and Delia Venables are well respected this field and the book is clear evidence of their capabilities. However, there is room for improvement. The discussion of Crown copyright is an excellent summary but they disappointingly avoid the sister topic of parliamentary copyright. In my mind this is an unacceptable omission which could be rectified with an additional page of text.
To say that the book lacks adequate guidance on the availability of international material is being polite. Even the novice in this area could supply more information than that provided. However it is probably fair to say that such coverage was far from a main objective.
This book is missing at least 200 pages and if it were a thesis it would undoubtedly fail. Easy reading for the novice, which at the end of the day includes most legal practitioners, this book is a disappointment for anyone with a passion for legal information. Despite this fact I think it is a useful addition to all public and private legal collections. It will certainly be an addition to my own once they have release two more editions.
I give it four crowns only because I was not given the option of three and a half.
