"The major strengths of the book are: organization; visual presentation; emphasis on real world application. With regard to organization, the material is presented logically and in accordance with how I think students will be able to start to understand what tort law is all about. It starts out slow and builds on important concepts as the book progresses. With regard to visual presentation, the book does a great job of presenting the material in an easily accessible format. Important concepts are clearly delineated throughout the chapters in a logical fashion. With regard to real world application, it's important for students to grasp how the concepts are applied in the real world. This text does a great job in providing realistic examples throughout the text material in addition to the generous case opinions."
