After reading this I must admit - ignorance of the law is no excuse anymore (or at least for Americans). :) It's really all about criminal law in States, but the basic is same. So it really won't hurt to read to get a clue why court makes decisions as it does. It doesn't matter if you're a law student, lawyer or nonlawyer. You get the understanding what and why criminal law is, what is punishment, actus rea or why is mens rea very important. And while you go through those witty dialogues and exp [...]

This is a great primer for young and old alike introducing the complexities and intricacies of criminal law. It's presented in a clear and engaging way and covers a lot of hopefully never useful material (unless you're studying to be a lawyer, where I imagine it would be quite a useful study aid). I enjoyed the illustration, though was once or twice distracted by scantily clothed characters. Recommended (for the legal introductions)!

Very Impressive! A cool way of taking what might otherwise be an impenetrable subject (criminal law) and making it easy to grasp and entertaining to boot! What a great piece of reference material to have on the shelf for the crime novelists.Of course it's not a law book, we'll leave those tomes to the libraries of the folks who interpret what society needs, but what a great overview of different legal scenarios. Debunks myths that we all carry around about the long arm of the law while also addr [...]

I picked this book up on a whim, and was pleasantly surprised. The content is definitely distilled to a point that a layman (like me) can understand, but more importantly the 'why' of criminal law is defined. Why do we have criminal law? Why are there so many laws? Why is an act of terrorism that accidentally kills one person punished harsher than a car accident that kills four people?When I was a child, whenever a character in a movie or tv show would go underwater (for whatever reason), I woul [...]

This book is intended to be something like a civics class: basic introduction to legal concepts for non-lawyers. It goes through some common misconceptions: what is entrapment, what is self-defense, etc. There's some fascinating editorializing from Burney about overcriminalization, the Just World phenomenon, and the purpose of imprisonment (he makes an interesting claim that the justice system's basic purpose is actually retribution or retaliation, not rehabilitiation or deterrence). The present [...]

I highly recommend this book. There is no way I'd be able to slog through a text about criminal law, but I was able to finish this book in a day. And I enjoyed it. No citing cases, no pedantic explanations, just pithy descriptions and apt illustrations. I broke out into a smile because I was charmed by something in the text or illustrations at least once per chapter. I will definitely get all the sequels.

Surprisingly introductory book given many of the topics I've frequently seen Nathaniel's law comics blog discuss. On top of that, the commentary on the US's legal and judicial systems shows high faith in the systems themselves---hard to swallow after any amount of Gramsci, Foucault, or Michelle Alexander.

I read this in about a day and a half because it was so good. A little text-heavy at times but overall some great explanations of basic criminal law as illustrated through various scenarios. The storyline alone is much more compelling than trying to learn the same information reading a few online articles though Burney's art adds to the pleasure too.

I enjoyed this law lesson. Reminds me of Donald Palmer's Does the Center Hold?Clear, concise and quite entertaining, if a little morbid at times (but how are you going to talk about murder without talking about murder?).

A great read. Fun & quick. Non-lawyer speaking here, but it's all neat information. My only complaint might be that it's not a huge 'value' for your money in terms of hours vs. cost, but whatever, it's good.

Whether you're interested in criminal law, or you're just a fan of crime dramas, Nathaniel Burney can help you understand the different criminal charges, defenses, and the determination of guilt while making you laugh.

I'm so excited about this! I've read sections of this online (published webcomic) and didn't realize there was a paper version!

An engaging guide, which not only explains legal elements, but offers discussion of current issues like overcriminalization. With this book, ignorance of the law is no longer an excuse
