However - law students wil also find it to contain surprising errors. Perhaps it could be used as a revision guide in this sense. At one point the author states that the House of Lords is bound by its own decisions - this (famously to students of law) has not been the case since Lord Gardener's 1966 Practice Statement. Furthermore as the book continues it does appear that the author really hasn't used legal resources and legal academics to check his work.
The book is divided into lots of chapters, covering most subjects you can think of in law, with stories/facts relating to the use of the obscure laws through the ages.
It's hard to put this book down once you start reading. Some of the laws will shock, some will make you laugh out loud and others will just confuse the mind! It's also an excellent book to just pick up and read a section here and there, so is an ideal coffee-table read.
The only down points are the constant editing mistakes....both in spelling and grammar. Hopefully by the next printed edition those will have been resolved.
Over all, a very enjoyable read.
I purchased this book as a substitute for postage cost i.e making my order up to the free postage value. I am glad I did.
Brilliant. Thank you Mr Cawthorne
In the meantime I'm just off to the Lyon Court,avoiding being hanged, to have my usurped lion rampant professionally removed!!
This book contains a lot of old laws which, for some reason, are still laws even to this day.
This book provides an entertaining read, and also provides an insight into the history of these laws, how they originated and how they were upheld.
I do not regret buying this book, and is worth the money in my opinion.
Its great laughter all the way through and makes you both proud and shamed to be english, but its also been a great help in learning history to do with my law degree, helps to form a broad knowledge, but besides that, it is superb read for law or non law person alike..
