4.0 out of 5 stars Good book for mineral owners as well as students January 27, 2002
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The third edition of this book was very helpful, and also included more recent case law cites than the second edition. I would assume this it true with the fourth as well (and there have been quite a few post 1995 court cases affecting royalty payments among other things). John Lowe is a well-respected professor of oil and gas law and has written many papers as well as several books on the subject.I find his writing style easy to understand, even for a layman like myself.I also found it to be much more than a "nutshell" approach in that the explanations of complicated ideas are fairly complete in most cases. He even touches on the structure and content of oil and gas sales contracts near the end of the book, which I found helpful as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great beginners book July 27, 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am an oil and gas landman who does a lot of title and "HBP" work in the midcontinent area. This book is an invaluable reference for landmen working in this area or for someone who owns mineral rights. However, it is a primer. For a more in depth treatise on the subject I recommend Cases and Materials on Oil and Gas Law, 4th Ed. by John S. Lowe, et al. as it is much more in depth.

By A.K.
Format:Paperback
I bought this book because I have to be involved in oil and gas transaction. It is very useful to cover basic cases and theories on this business area. However, because this book presumes that they understand the basic concepts of contract laws and realty laws, the readers are required to know 101 of, say, what is the reminder or what is the fee simple absolute etc. If you are not educated in the country which takes case law system, before reading it, it would be better to skim through the outline of contracts/realty law.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent overview of oil & gas law January 4, 2009
Format:Paperback
This is a must read for law students about to take an oil & gas final or for preparing for the Texas bar exam. The book assumes that you understand property interests and other basic property law concepts. I still have my book from law school in case I am confronted with an oil & gas issue in practice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comparison Between Louisiana Law and Common Law May 19, 2011
By CLESTER
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book was in good condition and arrived ahead of schedule. It covered the points I was looking for pertaining to the "Open Mines Doctrine", particularly as it applies in Louisiana. It also pointed out the differences between common law and civil law in Louisiana concerning several other issues I was interested in.

A good summary of oil and gas principles for lawyers or non-lawyers in the oil and gas industry. It would be nice if it were more state-specific.
