From "Every man's house is his castle" to "Caveat emptor" to Estoppel by deed and the reasoning behind perpetuities being 'odious' to a "great commercial country" and legislative policy, this book is a must for the informed lawyer who cherishes the application of the true Socratic method promised by law schools but not delivered.
The case of Acton v. Blundell found in the index is the basis of Texas' adoption of the so-called rule of capture which is, in fact, an exception to the rule that "every wrong has a remedy". The basis of the Acton case is damnum absque injuria, an injury without a (qualified) legal remedy that applies today with far more than just groundwater. If you get this book and explore damnum absque injuria and see how one school cannot have an action against another rival school for 'capturing', in a sense, the teaching scholars of the complaining school, think about how Pizza Hut can likewise not have a action against Papa John's when the late comer to the pizza market, Papa John's, 'captured' market share.
There is much more. You will be amazed at how much basic law the schools no longer teach.
