    My Property professor relied heavily on Moynihan, but even if he hadn’t, I would have appreciated this book. It presents concepts clearly and simply, appropriate for the lay reader. However, it is dense, and there is a lot of information packed into a very few pages. I particularly benefitted from chapters two and three. Some of the other sections move too heavily into the history and evolution of certain types of conveyances (fee tails, for instance), which was not helpful for my particular course. There are practice conveyances at the end of each chapter, which, since the answers are both given and explained, are useful.

    Property sucks, there’s no doubt about that, but this little book really helps with the more complicated issues, like the introduction to trusts and estates, which tend to give you the most problems. The examples are easy to read and it gives you a really great overview of the topic. I don’t know what I would have done without Moynihan!
