Not bad

In a sense just a primer, clear and concise for the size. Probably worth a second listen, I'm sure there is a lot more in here that went over my head. Would recommend.

The narrator is okay sometimes boring..The book it's not what I imagine maybe because I'm not a lawyer.

Vocabulary used is not for the layman

The author uses some pretty big words. Had to use the dictionary for a lot of them and they weren't legal terms.

Debatable?

Put off by the Americanised system concentration. Good points on logic but would have preferred a Scots based legal audiobook!

Too much history about law

Boring. As a lawyer I did not enjoy it. I would imagine non-lawyers would be bored out of their minds. The first hour was about the history of law ... snooze snooze. I stopped after that. Title looked good but not worth it. It was like a lecture from a boring law professor.

Very clear and energetic

I'm a law student who required to read a lot of cases and compulsory readings, I got no enough time to read other the non-required readings so listening to this favourite book saves my time and I comprehend easily, the narrator brings me to a new level of experience!
