Well, I read multiple text books at one go, e.g. Smith & Hogan, William Wilson etc.
After all I can sum up conclusions as follows:-
1) Smith & Hogan is bible of its kind; and
2) William Wilson easy to digest.
"Unlocking Criminal Law" combined the strength of both books. Further, its layout makes it accessible, digestible, and more importantly this book is very straight forward to the points and packed with sufficient content in width and in depth. I can use it as primary text book, jump to other books only if necessary (so far I used it consistently, seldom I need to use other text book as reference).
Thanks to the Authors Jacqueline & Tony and the publisher Routledge - This book and the series of "unlocking law" simply amazing!

In my opinion, this is one of the best books on the market on criminal law, as it digests much of the (often unnecessary) information found in many academic text books and succinctly and lucidly explains what is most useful. For students who are looking for a textbook which quickly gets to the point, avoiding longwinded academic discussion and obfuscation, this book is the answer. Its layout and format is also very student-friendly. I would not hesitate to recommend this book.
