I have used several books in the Nutshell series over the years, both in my J.D. courses and in my LL.M. courses and even in practice. I have generally found them to be helpful. However, this volume is an exception. If you're like me, you purchase Nutshells as a means of streamlining course content and providing a quick reference when you need to look up a particular detail of the law. In my view, this Nutshell falls short in that capacity and I have found it largely unusable. To me, it reads more as the philosophical meandering of the authors than a streamlined guide to black letter antitrust law. It also feels as though it hasn't been revised in many years and the language is sometimes unnecessarily dated. Here is an actual quote from the text:

"For example, even the most ice-cream addicted child will experience diminishing marginal utility after her fifth chocolate soda in the same afternoon."

I believe that this could be done better. There is no shortage of case law in the realm of antitrust, and the principles are not so difficult or esoteric that they need be inflated to philosophy. A hefty revision is in order.

there are a couple of supreme court cases that have happened since this book was published, go for the E&E that was published in 2011, or if they come out with a new nutshell get that.

There is probably a newer edition out by now and since antitrust law is always evolving, I would purchase the newest edition available. However, this edition was quite good and comprehensive. I was worried about my antitrust law school final because although I went to class, I didn't read the cases. However with help of the nutshell, I got an A.
