What disappointed you about Criminal Procedure?
This is an outline, written with no thought whatsoever given to the fact that it would be read aloud. Imagine passages like this "Five. For a discussion of whether suspects have R-E-P in car containers, see section 1.3.2.a supra." Godawful. This would be a bad outline in text format, it is a crime in audio.
Would you be willing to try another one of Deaver Brown’s performances?
No. This should not really be called a performance, so much as reading into a laptop in Deaver's house, apparently, based on background noise. He should have had someone edit his reading to fix obvious errors, like reading the wrong word in a sentence, and then continuing on like nothing had happened. Very distracting. He also should have learned the difference between words like "peremptory" and "preemptory," This is like an advertisement for Sum and Substance, what an awful performance.
Any additional comments?
There are different interpretations of law, but several statements in the outline are directly contradictory to statements made in crim pro class at law school, and in textbooks from well known authors.. The law may have changed since publication, or, given the competence of the rest of the production, the author has the law wrong.
