As a non-lawyer and a non-expert in antitrust, I found this to be a very useful introduction and reference. It takes a fairly dispassionate view of antitrust, yet gives the reader some insight into some of the controversies and unresolved issues in the field. The writing is clear and often lively. The authors use examples well to illustrate their point, but don't go into excessive detail. It doesn't just cover the laws, but it covers the procedures and some of the key doctrines that have developed over the years. A student of antitrust will probably want a much more comprehensive book, but for someone just getting in to the topic this is an excellent, inexpensive and short introduction. It probably took me about three or four hours to read the whole book.
