    1. So very disappointing. I had such high hopes for this book. I expected an analytical view of some of the strangest cases throughout the laws rich history. Instead I received a brief sub-standard summary of tens of cases that barely scratched the surface of what is a topic of quite vast depth. I knew it was downhill from the inclusion/opening with the Trial of Jesus Christ. For that to be given nearly equal word count as the world changing case of Donoghue v Stevenson is beyond me. I should have [...]

    2. There were quite a few cases listed in this book - but the disadvantage of there being so many is that each case is given very little page time. Just enough for a basic rundown of the facts and a couple of comments from the author.The author is not a lawyer - and he says as much in the foreword. However, I think the book loses something for this, as it's obvious that the author doesn't know much about the actual law. The cases chosen mostly seem to have been picked because of the sensational cir [...]

    3. Occasionally gruesome but never dull trip through the odder parts of a few thousand years of legal history.

    4. Just finished this book and I really enjoyed it. The book forms a combination of remarkable tales from law cases through the centuries. Even though I am oblivious to everything that has to do with the law I enjoyed this compilation.

    5. Good ReadA good and very interesting read! It certainly was an eye opener to the laws of this great land! Highly recommended to all!
