Given the subject of this text, a certain overlap with the Companies Acts is inevitable. However, the previous reviewer's assertion that the reader might just as well read a statute book is just that, an assertion. He or she fails to mention the 46-page table of case references or the numerous chapters which contain few references to the Acts, such as "Legal Personality: Its Consequences and Limitations". This is not primarily an academic text, but is, by its own admission, "a textbook for practitioners and those involved in the day-to-day administration of companies". As a practitioner, I find this text to be a useful reference and starting point for research. Had I been aware of this book as a student I would have bought it, but not in the expectation that it would be a collection of academic essays.
