“I find the layout of the text easy to follow which is helpful to students who are relatively unfamiliar with legal principles and concepts ... The case studies and citations are extremely helpful as they illustrate, in realistic terms, the legal concepts that are being discussed.” — Bryan Shapiro, University of British Columbia


“Very clear and engineering-flavoured ... I love the book!” — Dr. Michael Bennett, Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science, UOIT
