Adopting a distinctive narrative approach based on the chronology of a claim, Blackstone's Civil Practice 2013: The Commentary provides authoritative guidance on the process of civil litigation from commencement of a claim to enforcement of judgments. It addresses civil procedure in the county courts, the High Court, the Court of Appeal, and the Supreme Court as well as more specialist matters such as insolvency proceedings, sale of goods, and human rights, providing expert analysis on a comprehensive level. The narrative commentary is supported by the comprehensive Blackstone's Civil Practice 2013 Procedural Checklists. 38 Procedural Checklists summarize the steps to be taken, and include invaluable information on documentation, time limits, and required actions, as well as applicable Civil Procedure Rules (CPR) and Practice Directions (PD) in a concise format to provide an additional research tool. Straightforward navigation is ensured by a detailed and user-friendly index as well as a quick-reference guide inside the front cover, providing an alternative point of access for those more familiar with the CPR. Written by a team of expert practitioners and academics, it is an ideal tool for those requiring quality and in-depth analysis. The text is fully referenced to the CPR and PD making the book easy to use alongside other sources at your desk as well as in court. Turn to Blackstone's for reliable commentary from a team of experts on unfamiliar points of procedure and all your research needs. You may be interested to know that The Commentary is directly taken from the established full service volume, Blackstone's Civil Practice 2013 which includes the text of the CPR and PD, Pre-Action Protocols, selected legislation, and court fees orders. Electronic versions of the Procedural Checklists in Blackstone's Civil Practice 2013 are available from IRIS Laserform.

On first reading, it appears to be a good legal book with concise explanation of the legal law. However the cost is too high for an e-book. I recommend the book for all interested to know law in more detail.
