This is a well written, easy to read, up-to-date introduction to the English legal system and to the basic principles of the English law of contract...The book has sufficient length to provide good explanations and detail for practising lawyers; it also is sufficiently brief to allow a good picture of the whole and its interconnectedness to be seen. The book is highly recommended. Happy reading! -- Professor Tony Angelo * New Zealand Law Journal *
...well written, in plain and easily understandable English and can give to the lay reader a simple but comprehensive outlook of English law of contract...a continental student can employ the book as a simple but engaging source of knowledge of the English system... -- Luciano Pontiroli * Web Journal of Current Legal Issues *
