    This book is still used a great deal in law schools, but there are better casebooks now with modern, more interesting cases and more thoughtful analysis. Instead, try Goldberg, Sebok and Zipursky, Tort Law: Responsibilities and Redress.

    OK, it’s a casebook. By definition it is just a bunch of cases thrown together to demonstrate various areas of the law. But lately there has been a new trend in books for 1Ls… analysis. Sure, this book has “Notes” sections between the cases, but they are little more than hypotheticals or one-line versions of even more cases. What about some essays? Talk about the logic behind the cases or maybe mix in some Law and Economics theory. As a generic casebook this is quite good, but adding a little more than just cases would be outstanding.

    Case books have a difficult time getting respect, because they have to include the opinions written by the different judges for the different cases. So, you’re dealing with many, many writers, and unfortunately, judges aren’t known for their entertaining, flowery prose.

    So, the “authors” of a casebook really only get to throw in a few tidbits about the relevant law in-between a lot of badly written, lengthy legalese. I’m betting that they’re limited on how much they can write in-between the case opinions by their publishers.

    That said, this is a pretty decent casebook. Buy it only if you have to. If you have access to Lexis/Nexis or WestLaw, etc., you can always just look up and read the cases online & save the cost of the textbook.

    To really understand Torts, I suggest getting a study aid like Examples & Explanations, which I think is put out by Lexis press or the Professor Series by Gilberts. The Finals series are good, too.
