1.0 out of 5 stars The horror, the horror... 8 Aug. 2014
By Vick - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase
What can you really say about the bluebook? It's a travesty, a curse upon all mankind. As if tuition for law school isn't egregious enough, the entire field seems to believe that students are in further need of punishment. MLA? Too easy. Chicago? Too clean. these students need to really hate themselves. Enter, the Bluebook, an absurdly archaic and unwieldy citation system. Worst of all, it continues to grow like a malignant tumor on the minds of poor law students.

1.0 out of 5 stars Hard to navigate and does not answer ALL citation Qs 2 Dec. 2012
By sirtoil - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase
This book is hard to navigate and does not answer ALL citation questions that a new 1L may have. I do not get how this became the guiding authority on citation; it is awful!! I must assume that this book is a way for 3Ls to "haze" 1Ls by making them learn it and try to figure out where to go to get the necessary information. I get that law school is hard, but this book could be better organized by a blind chimpanzee.

1.0 out of 5 stars Worthless except as a Cash Cow 25 Aug. 2010
By K. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound
Words cannot describe how much I hate this book. It is a necessary evil that really exists only to raise money for Harvard Law.

2.0 out of 5 stars Blatant False Advertising! 15 July 2010
By Evan612 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound
While those hoitee-toitee Harvard kids claim to be selling you a bluebook, most of the pages are white! And last time I checked, a "book" has a spine, not this spiral-bound mess they try to pass off as "literature." I suppose actually that this is to the reader's advantage, as no doubt in fits of rage it is much easier to rip pages out of a flimsy spiral-bound book than your typical hardcover. But...enough about aesthetics. Let's get to the details!

The plot is quite contrived and character development is stagnant at best, regressive at worst. Apparently, the authors think we'll automatically care for the protagonist, "Statute." Well, newsflash, Harvard Law Review, we don't! What kind of home does he come from? What are his hobbies? Does he have a girlfriend? All of these answers are conspicuously absent. Personally (and I don't pretend to be an author of any kind), I would have made "Periodicals" the main character, instead of just a on-again off-again third wheel. And he'd have an drinking problem. Also, it doesn't take a genius to realize that for something to be successful nowadays, it needs vampires! What, are law students too busy to enjoy a movie once in a while? There could even be "Team Periodicals" versus "Team Statutes." Think outside the box, Harvard Law Review. Seriously.

Finally, you would think a book centered on law would know a thing or two about copyright infringement! Like many of you here, I bet you surprised to see a book centering on law rather than on how much your automobile is worth, right? Me too! Apparently, that's a different Bluebook! What, Harvard, was "Magentabook" already taken? What's your newspaper called? The Times of London?! I wanted to know the value of my '96 Honda Accord, not whether to italicize or small-caps the title to a treatise on income tax! So again, if you're looking for the REAL Bluebook, ask your mechanic!

So, you ask, why after all the harsh criticisms above do I still give it two stars? Great question. First (and for one star), I believe any book that goes through 19 freakin' editions must have gotten something right by now. For that second star, those devilish Harvard Law Review kids managed to sneak in "Harvard is for hotties; Yale is for eunichs" on pg. 213 without the publishers noticing. I guess the Harvard Lampoon is rubbing off on those law school stiffs.

4.0 out of 5 stars I Hate This Book, BUT You HAVE to Purchase It....Unfortunately 23 Jun. 2013
By Stan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase
It's not that I really hate this book, I more hate the organizations that produces this book. First, I'm assuming this has not been done, but the editors of all the "prestigious" law reviews who write and edit this book need to get their act together and hire a professional company to rework the appendix and table of contents to be more helpful! The information is surely in the book, but it's unnecessarily overly difficult to find the information you're looking for. The Blue Book(tm) indeed has a monopoly on the legal citation market, which is why you MUST purchase it (unless you'd prefer to look like a moron when you submit your documents to the court only to have them sent back because nothing was cited properly...you don't want to be known as "that attorney").

Ok, I'm amending my complaint/review. The book is not too bad once you spend around 100 hours with it. After that, you'll get the hang of it and the book is not that bad. Although, I still stand behind my last review recommending that the editors provide a better table of contents and index.
