Books that explain the nuances of the law are, in most cases, written by lawyers and are primarily meant for law students and other interested lawyers. Except for a few authors like Isagani Cruz and Jose Nolledo who can write for general audiences, many authors of law books write for a very specific audience and they are wont to use legal jargon in explaining their points. In the process, non-lawyers are deprived of valuable information due to the inherent failure to properly understand most lawyer-authors’ generally inscrutable writing style.
