The chapters are easy to navigate through and the 'think' points are such that students will develop a critical approach to their study of contract law.' - Maureen Maksymiw, Nottingham Trent University, UK

'The book is based on extensive research and analysis of the courts' decisions on the subject of contract law and can be highly recommended as worthy of a place in the libraries of all institutions dealing with legal faculties' - Ravi Singhania, International Company and Commercial Law Review, Volume 20 Issue 1 2009
