I found the book [Essential Judicial Reasoning] very useful, and I relied on it extensively in dealing with the cases I presided over and for the preparation of my judgments during my most recent acting stint from 1 February 2017 to 3 March 2017.
I took it [Civil Practice in the Magistrates' Court] along with me to one of my Practical Legal Training classes and my group members were very impressed with it! May I congratulate you sir on a well written book.
