best book on law i've ever read

If you could sum up The Moral Structure of Legal Obligation in three words, what would they be?

it was rigorous and scholarly, but also strangely lyrical.

What other book might you compare The Moral Structure of Legal Obligation to and why?

'jurisprudence' by salmond, similar viewpoints, similar style.

Have you listened to any of Mark Symms’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

not familiar with mr. symms.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

the part on originalism was....original

Any additional comments?

great book. surprised i haven't heard of this guy before.

sharp and deep

An amazing analysis of positivism and other theories about law. I learned so, so much from this. And very listenable!
