Pretty good  March 21, 2011
by


Very informative for Criminal Justice and the Legal System class I am currently enrolled in. Obviously not an everyday read, but it's definitely a good textbook - more interesting than many I have encountered in the past. It is easy to understand and comprehend. This book has clear writing style, characterized by careful chunking of material into small sections within chapters. I will hang on to this one for future references in the Criminal Justice Field.
