I am a 1L student, and I found this book harder to read than Con Law I book. This might be the worst book that has ever been written about Criminal Law because it is not clear explaining the concepts.
The book uses other secondary sources like law reviews to explain the concepts, and that is even more confusing because those who wrote the law reviews or treaties already know or have some familiarities with the criminal law where I, as a first year law student, have no familiarity with the subject. This book can be easy to read for those who have criminal law background, but for those, like me, who have no prior experience with the criminal law, this book can be challenging to read and understand. I wish the author used an easier way to translate the legalese, concepts, and the law to the first year law students. Also, I think it is important for authors to see who their audiences are when they write their books because in this case, law students are their audience, not professors or law experts. I only read this book for its cases, and for understanding the law and the concepts, I heavily rely on my supplement.
Moreover, for those professors who are teaching criminal law, please use a book that is easy to read and understand, and this book is not definitely one of them. This book is been written from the defense perspective, and for those students who want to pursue their careers as prosecutor, buy a supplement that could help you to see both perspectives.

I COULD NOT BELIEVE THE BOOK LOOKED UNNUSED AS IF IT WAS A BRAND NEW BOOK. IT HAD BASICALLY NO MARKINGS. IT WAS LESS THAN HALF OF A NEW BOOK AND ARRIVED IN LESS TIME THAN THEY STATED. VERY GREAT SERVICE AND PRODUCT.
