Customer Reviews

I enjoyed reading the book and found it to be very informative.
ILoveShoes
For this book, the text will enlarge, however the charts and exhibits actually become smaller.

It is very beneficial to anyone in Criminal Justice, or just interested in our law.

I have not finished the book, so for now all I can do is provide a review for the kindle and the app for the PC. Everything works good except for the exhibits , charts, etc, they do not work. I use e-books for the simple reason I can enlarge the print size.For this book, the text will enlarge, however the charts and exhibits actually become smaller. I can not read the material presented on these. Since the instructor uses these areas extensively, it is critical that I know this material. I contacted Amazon and they suggested that I report the problem on the kindle (right click, more, report) with no results or communication. I will now attempt to get a refund as I purchased a copy from Barnes and Noble and will use their nook. Everything works great with nook, the entire page enlarges.
Technology is fantastic, until it screws up, we just have not figured everything out yet, but until then, go with nook, I did.

Bought this book for my Judicial Process in America class. I enjoyed reading the book and found it to be very informative. I learned a lot from it, which is great considering I am a CJ major.

I like the book. Very informative for Criminal Justice and the Legal System class I am currently enrolled in. Obviously not an everyday read, but it's definitely a good textbook - more interesting than many I have encountered in the past.

I purchased this book for a college class and it has a lot of useful information in it. The book was also shipped on time and was in prefect condition when I received the book. I would recommend buying this book again if you are interested in how the American Courts and Judicial System works.
