Review quote

"The author is skilled in reducing the concepts to their essence while providing valuable context to certain key principles, such as causation, which can only help the reader to develop a deeper appreciation of the subject. "
--Jason Lowther, Associate Professor in Law, University of Plymouth
"Legal principles and case law are clearly explained throughout. Conflating the facts, decision, and ratio in a memorable sentence or two will be especially helpful to student revision. "
--Steven Truxal, Senior Lecturer, Kingston University
