This book is a fantastic one for anyone who wants to learn about methods of marshaling and assessing evidence in legal context. The material about evidence and inference is rigorous and very comprehensive. It is a fantastic tool for attorneys, judges, prosecutors, and of course professors and students in several disciplines. Evidence analysis and Law of Evidence have a magnificent work to explore.
