The fifth edition of Estates in Land and Future Interests combines graphics, text boxes, and pedagogical techniques especially helpful to visual learners to teach the basics of estates and future interests, a particularly confusing subset of first-year property. One central graphic — a flow chart used to identify the state of the title after a particular conveyance — links various estates to the future interests that follow them. The complete flow chart appears on the inside back cover for easy reference. The book is useful both in class and as a practice book for self-guided learning outside class, thus reducing necessary syllabus time. Its step-by-step, process approach breaks up analytical tasks into smaller pieces, reducing the degree to which students get lost in the material. The book anticipates the most common areas of student confusion and resolves them before they occur. Written in clear, simple language, with short paragraphs and chapters, Estates in Land and Future Interests features an open, attractive design enhanced by graphics to make the material easier to understand.

For each exception, this book: • Outlines the policies underlying the exception; • Lists and explains the requirements that must be satisfied for evidence to be admitted under the exception; • Explains additional issues that have arisen or are likely to arise; • Explains how the rule interacts with other rules ; • Discusses tactical and procedural considerations that must be understood to appreciate how the rule plays in court; and • Provides review questions and answers that allow students to test their understanding and applications of the rules. The book also includes humorous references addressing the hearsay significance of a ham sandwich, Humpty Dumpty, the Greek god of wine, Tim McGraw, dog saliva, Derek Jeter, a squeaky boot, Leonardo DiCaprio, the French Army, the speed of sound, Commander Data, and the Chicago Cubs. The 4th edition is based on the text of the restyled Federal Rules of Evidence that will become effective December 1, 2011. It includes a detailed discussion of every Supreme Court Confrontation Clause decision from Crawford to Bryant, and also discusses the Bullcoming case which the Court will probably decide sometime this year. It includes a link to the author's web page on which updates to the Guide will be posted.
