My rating: 3 of 5 stars. Note: a rating for 3 stars on Goodreads means, “Liked it”.
LaFrance gives you all the info that you need, but, it’s dry and the info isn’t communicated or formatted in an easy way to understand.
I had to read this book for a class and though it gave me all the information I needed, it reminded me of how important the interior design of a book is. Book design is extremely important for how readers are able to digest information and plays an integral part in generating enough interest for readers to even look at a book. And with a title with the word, “nutshell” in it, it sure didn’t express major ideas concisely. LaFrance’s work is still a great resource if you’re looking for a boiled down version of a subject as dense as law, though. The book is also broken down by section per U.S. copyright law so it’s easy to reference a particular section of it if you’re looking for something specific.
