Torts: Personal Injury Litigation  July 31, 2011
by


The textbook was very comprehensive; easy to read. Information is presented clearly. I have found this textbook to be very useful and will continue to use it as a good reference book in the future. The textbook arrived in a very timely fashion actually before i had expected it and it was in great condition no tears and no highlighting already in it for a used textbook.
