Epstein Torts

Has anyone used this book? what are your thoughts as a supplement? Is it in depth enough or is more of a nutshell type book?

Also, my casebook is an Epstein book so thats why I have a natural inclination to pick this because it is written by Epstein. Its from 1999, is that too old of a torts book to utilize? Have things changed significantly since then?

Any info is appreciated

This is supplemental (purely contextual) reading in my class, and I also have the Epstein Casebook. Its alright. I haven't touched it much in the last week or two because Torts has kind of fallen to the wayside for my other classes, but it was pretty good for Intentional Torts. No idea how it suits the rest of the casebook though.

The Glannon Guide to Torts (NOT the E&E) is keyed to the Epstein casebook.

This? My professor is considering an ENTIRE MC exam because there are 100 students in our section, and it would be awesome if this is keyed to Epstein. Plus I've heard Glannon Guides are awesome anyway if you have even partial MC exams.

On the scale of dryness
Torts book > Treatise > RANDOM PHILOSOPHER > HARRY POTTER
