"Practiciioners generally like to see the law easily and clearly stated. They also appreciate some expansion on its meaning and some assistance with its application. All of these elements are contained within the book ... very easy to access ... there are also extremely helpful sections on sentencing; and sections on the sex offenders register, its enforcement and dealing with offences revolving around the management of sex offenders ... an extremely accessible and useful text for both practitioners and students; although primarily the former ... Anyone involved at any level in dealing with the implementation of the law in this field will find this invaluable resource in what is renowned as one of the most complex areas of criminal legislation, and it will be a welcome addition to anyone's library"
