"My overall reaction to this book is very favorable. I think it is an excellent text. It is comprehensive in subject matter. It is also very readable. Throughout it makes some difficult subject matters understandable to the reader. I think the writing style is perfect. I think it is a very good review of complex subject matter. I would continue to request to use this book and prefer this book to other texts of a similar nature."
"I believe it is a great product. My overall reaction to this book is favorable, because there is virtually nothing out on the market that is NYS specific for the paralegal."
