3.0 out of 5 stars First Year Law 8 Sep 2006
I tended to read cases on Lexis Nexis, but this was useful when those cases were very long/complicated. Also good for foreign cases, which can be more difficult to find.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fine book but marred by Economic Torts section 20 Feb 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book does not include the important cases of OBG v ALLAN and Total Investments cases.
It omitted the two major cases of today's economic torts. Unless you are fine with this omission, then this book is a reasonably good buy.

2.0 out of 5 stars I just couldn't give it 3 stars 22 Mar 2010
I bought this book for help with tutorial work. My Uni is quite intense on us reading the whole of the cases, but in reality I just don't get the time. So I thought this would be a good substitute. I however find that it doesn't go into as much analysis as I would have liked. It extracts some of the relevant passages of the case (which is the best thing about the book in my opinion) but I can also get that from a "heavy" textbook such as Jenny Steele. However, it is good as an overview and worth while if you don't want to read the whole of the case.
