    I read this book after seeing it listed as a suggestion in Atticus Falcon's Planet Law School. Delaney's book is incredibly succinct and practical. It teaches how to brief cases, and through briefing cases, it highlights concepts of legal reasoning for the new law student. I highly recommend this book for anyone "prepping" for law school.

    Falcon, in "Planet Law School," sets this at the top of a suggested pre-law curriculum. I mostly agree with this assessment. It is an excellent, clearly presented introduction to how to read and brief an appellate court opinion-- an activity at the core of the first year of law school, so I hear. I took a bit longer going through this text than Falcon (or perhaps Delaney himself) imagined, largely because I was putting some effort in trying to achieve results similar to what the author describes Falcon, in "Planet Law School," sets this at the top of a suggested pre-law curriculum. I mostly agree with this assessment. It is an excellent, clearly presented introduction to how to read and brief an appellate court opinion-- an activity at the core of the first year of law school, so I hear. I took a bit longer going through this text than Falcon (or perhaps Delaney himself) imagined, largely because I was putting some effort in trying to achieve results similar to what the author describes as "Excellent Beginner's Briefs." One should probably realize from the outset that his use of the word "beginner" denotes an early-career lawyer rather than someone for whom this is the first law book ever read. Delaney's "beginners" not only have a well-schooled briefing style complete with much nifty shorthand, but they also frequently bring to bear legal knowledge outside the scope of Delaney's book (e.g. of the elements of tort negligence). I interrupted my progress through Delaney with readings of some relevant chapters in the assorted Aspen subject primers, but even so I expect I will need to learn a bit more before I can write an "excellent beginnger's brief." So long as students give themselves more of a break than I did, and focus on learning as much as possible from Delaney's examples, this is a great first law book. The final chapter, which offers a pseudo-platonic dialogue between divergent judicial temperaments that may be evident in an opinion, is an appropriate and thought-provoking coda.

    Being self-published, it could use professional typesetting. That aside, the content is top notch.

    good way to prep in the summer before 1L.... learn the philosophy of briefing but don't actually do it in class!
