    "I direct counsel to Blackstone's Criminal Practice first - Archbold cannot rival it in terms of detailed coverage and commentary. - HHJ Roberts, Central Criminal Court

    "Blackstone's is a worthy rival to Archbold. Its treatment of evidence and procedure, as well as its exemplary discussion of recent appellate court authorities make it my first port of call on any problem." - HHJ Pardoe QC, Snaresbrook Crown Court

    "A most valuable reference guide. I would not be without it." - HHJ Radford, Snaresbrook Crown Court

    "Easy to read and not only extremely useful for advocates but could be a vital quick reference for legal advisors and magistrates." - John Thornhill JP, The Magistrate

    "The enormous breadth of experience and expertise of the academic and practitioner contributors is everywhere evident" - Robin Booth, The London Advocate

    "It is the most comprehensive and easily accessible reference book on criminal law and practice and it enables me to do my job effectively and efficiently. I am in charge of the legal resources for the Force and if I was only allowed to order one book, this would be it!" - Patricia Wooding, Legislation Manager, Thames Valley Police
