Toby Dorsey’s book, Legislative Drafter’s Deskbook, to be published next month (it’s making its way – finally – next week from the printing plant in Michigan to the bookbinder in Massachusetts), is getting more positive reviews.
We thank NCSL’s blog, The Thicket, for the pointer to a recent review in the American Political Science Association’s Legislative Studies Section Newsletter:
Overall the author produces an informative and effective work that provides readers with a detailed introduction to the thoughtfulness and importance of drafting legislative statutes. This work is so highly informative to someone foreign to the drafting process, that it must also stand a useful daily guide and reminder to actual drafters. The Legislative Drafter’s Deskbook clearly has a place on the bookshelves of practitioners and scholars alike.
