  • "What makes Patel's 8 CFR Plus and 20/22/28 CFR Plus stand out among the other books of regulations is its excellent system of finding aids, combined with its easy-to-read and easy-to-use format of presenting the regulations. This version of regulations has withstood the test of time and is perhaps the most user-friendly of the versions available." - William Stock

  • "There are several available versions of the Immigration and Nationality Act. I subscribe to most of them. For over 15 years, however, I have thought that Patel's version, called The Whole Act, was the best of the bunch. I heartily endorse it. It is easy to read. It is intelligently annotated and indexed. And in 15 years so far I have never caught a mistake. Buy it, and use it every day." - Bruce Hake

  • "This book will enable conscientious lawyers to instantly obtain up-to-date status when citing administrative precendent." - Tammy Fox-Isicoff
