2.0 out of 5 stars Poor layout; too dense., 13 Mar. 2006
This review is from: Textbook on Torts (Paperback)
I am currently studying for the Graduate Diploma in Law conversion course, and this was one of the textbooks we were supplied with at the start of the year. I'm sorry to say that I find it to be the worst of them.
Firstly, the material is extremely in-depth: I suspect it would be better aimed at legal researchers than those studying for a law degree or a conversion course.
The biggest problem , though, is the poor layout. Headings are very few and far between, and the reader is often confronted with page after page of solid text. Consequently, the book is virtually useless as a quick reference. I want to be able sometimes to dip into a law textbook to find an authority for a a particular proposition. Due to the continuous nature of the text in this book it can be very difficult to locate individual points in this way - often one has to read through several pages in order find the relevant lines of text. It reads like a novel.
This book might have value for those wishing to gain a deeper knowledge of particular areas of tort law. For a primary textbook though, I much prefer Winfield & Jolowicz on Tort.
