Critics’ Reviews

"I … enjoyed these new editions as much as their predecessors. Dr. Bennett has a way of bringing his characters back to life, with amusing little anecdotes, such as that Burt had, on occasion, to hold an umbrella up whilst sitting in Perth, due to the poor condition of the Court. …

I sincerely believe that politicians, today, could do well to read these books. They might thereby gain some insight into the difficulties that judicial officers face in one of the most misunderstood vocations.

I would say the same for lawyers as well, who might obtain a greater sense of understanding of the difficulties faced in the mid 1800’s by judicial officers, and reflect on the fact that not much has changed in 150 years." – Tasmanian Law Society Newsletter, March 2003
