Having bought this book to assist me with my contract law module for my post-grad surveying course, I can say that it is excellent throughout. It is very easy to read, which is a must for a newcomer to the subject.
I have also noted on many occasions that the author is actively seeking to establish a clear framework of real life contract law, as opposed to the wholly theoretical subjects in my study materials. For example, A clear relationship between a common mistake and frustration of a contract exists, which was not conveyed to me at all in my study materials. Using this book in conjunction with my studies has really re-enforced the subject matter, much more so than using my study materials alone. The author also is very good at explaining the actual arguments surrounding contract law, giving the reader an overview of how each main subject has its pros and cons in the real world.
I cannot comment on it's effectiveness for law students but for students who will need to master specific areas of the law in order to practice, this book is invaluable.

A horrible book. Its incredibly wordy. It's filled with unneccescary terms of the English language which I believe are there to boggle your mind. Furthermore its filled with terms that shouldn't be used to describe or paint a picture of parts of contract law. In summary its a very difficult read. Take this from a first year law student, find a larger more understandable book. Don't let its size fool you.

Very well explained, a lot of cases included in the text. I did contract in my first semester of first year and it gave me really good basic law knowledge that I didn't have before :)

Studying in my first of law and this book has been my bible!
Easy reading for quite a dry topic, with lots of case references, would highly recommend

Format: Paperback
A warning - if you're in the first year of your LLB, you might want to consider buying the previous edition, as it's highly unlikely more than a paragraph or two has changed since then; this is merely a broad text giving a 'gist'; your lecturer will give you a caselist hopefully which will be far more important to you than this book in letting you know the state of the law as you'll be examined on it (and for which you ought to buy an old edition of Burrows' casebook); and by the time you graduate even next year's textbook too will be ostensibly out of date, if it even is, because the character of English contract law is to change extremely slowly to provide commercial parties around the world with the certainty they require to stipulate that their agreements will be governed by it.

The book is written in a kind of eternal present tense, in which the law merely 'is': there is no history referred to, virtually no normative, political, or ethical angle, and a complete absence of any descriptive devices which could anchor the work in any applied context such as to aid understanding, or provide any type of colour whatever. There is more excitement and pedagogic dynamism in wallpaper paste. You think I'm just being harsh and flippant, don't you... In reality the sort of spleen this book deserves is more than I can muster at this moment.

Enjoy...
