About the Author
Tom Bingham, 'the most eminent of our judges' (Guardian), held office successively as Master of the Rolls, Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales and Senior Law Lord of the United Kingdom, the only person ever to hold all three offices. He became a life peer, as Baron Bingham of Cornhill in the County of Powys, on becoming Lord Chief Justice in 1996. In 2005 he was appointed a Knight of the Garter, the first professional judge to be so honoured. He retired in 2008, and in the same year was elected by the Institut de France as the first winner of the Prize for Law awarded by the Alexander S. Onassis Public Benefit Foundation.

How is this book a tough read : 1) It was mostly written for the lawyer (which i am not) . 2) It was written mostly for the context of the British reader. 3) The applicability is mostly to European contexts. 4) He sounds pedantic (maybe that's how lawyers are) 5) Post part 1, the book can be summarized by its chapter headings
Now how does the book really add value to the reader?
1) It answers why: Most people take laws for granted. Those using laws to judge people and those creating laws cannot do that. They must get to the underlying reasons why laws exist and use this understanding accordingly.
2) It lays down how a judge thinks : We always knew lawyers thought differently (!)
3) It might motivate some of you to become lawyers politicians - Not sure this may motivate you to change professions but if you are thinking about which profession to join, this might make you think.
4) Your armchair commentary will get smarter - When you use terms that lawyers use in flawless Latin, even the most ardent adversary in a debate will sit up and take notice!
