Delaney May 2011?

Postby spencer1888 » Sun Jun 12, 2011 8:00 pm

So I was about to order myself a copy of Delaney's book when I noticed someone on half.com selling the 'May 2011' revision. The username suggests it's John Delaney's own company selling it, but the official site nowhere mentions a new edition. Neither does a quick search on google bring anything up. Here's the link:

http://product.half.ebay.com/Learning-L ... 1087960878

Is this for real? Doesn't seem so but I would rather know for sure and not end up buying an old edition.

Also, as long as we're on topic here, is the Learning Legal Reasoning the one generally recommended for 0L reading, or are the others good as well?

Delaney's book for criminal law is excellent.

Useful in the summer or more so towards the middle of the semester?

You'd want to read it as you cover relevant material in class

Is Delaney out of print or something? Can't buy it new on Amazon, and it doesn't seem to be available anywhere that's not a used book reseller or campus bookstore. I'm a little miffed because it seemed good, and I had an Amazon gift card, but I'm not in the mood to pay $30+ for a little paperback book that I may or may not need.

Delaney has his own website. Google it. He will write a personal note on your invoice.

My mistake. Running on the old Incredible Universe motto-if it's not in the Universe, it doesn't exist!

Friendship... is not something you learn in school. But if you haven't learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven't learned anything.

Awesome thanks. If I only have the money for one, which should I get--Learning Legal Reasoning or How to do your best on law school exams?
