Joel Samaha is the author of three best-selling books in criminal justice, mainly due to his presentation of legal issues in a lucid and methodical manner. This book's success can be attributed to the author's ability to help the user grasp the complexities of the criminal justice system and the law by presenting all sides of an issue equally; he wants the reader to understand, not merely memorize. This is a comprehensive and legally-oriented book, focusing on the law as it is written, not from a layperson's point of view.
