This book is one of those that is probably forced upon you in a college class. It is rather dry and boring, with a lot of technical details.

The book is well researched and detailed. It is also easy to read and in a clear format that makes it interesting and easy to flick through to find specific information or topics.
I highly recommend this book to any one interested in International Intellectual Property law and policy. A great read.
