Not as in depth or detailed as other Contract Law text-books such as Treitel or Ansons, nevertheless, this book provided all relevant topics to a reasonable level of detail. It was extremely useful as an essay-answering tool and is an excellent 'fall-back' book from the main thorough text books mentioned above.

The majority of the text is written very well, introducing contract law to students who have never studied law before. It presents several perspectives and refers to other writer's views thus conveying effectively non-bias debates, which is essential to a law undergraduate. Any misunderstandings during lectures are easily clarified and re-enforced by the presentation of a variety of views for the reader to think about.
For the common reader this book will be adequate however, law undergraduates require more depth which can be found in other books. However, this does not devalue this book because this is an essential foundation point for students who are begining the study of law for the first time. Another critisism being in certain areas of the book taking a change in style, from an interesting read to a plain factual text which gives a tedious feel. However these areas are small sections, the rest of the book is beautifully written.
Its a shame that this lecturer has left my university to lecture elsewhere!
