Format: Paperback
The book is very UK centric and not very academic. The author thinks that the UK perspective on corporate governance is the only way forward. The book ignores (most of) the existing academic literature in the area and virtually all of the references are codes of best practice and publications authored by practitioners. The book suffers from a lack of critical analysis of the existing regulation and approaches to corporate governance.

This would be an OK first introduction to corporate governance, but it would need to be supplemented by a more academic and more advanced text. However, there is the danger that using this text may give students the wrong impression that corporate governance is just limited to compliance and is a fairly tedious and dry subject area. Corporate governance is much more complex (and also much more exciting) than that!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A straight "up-and-down" and reasonably comprehensive account of most of the current major issues in coprorate governance.In particular, I find it very hard to understand how any discussion of corporate governance can neglect to discuss the company secretary's role or fail to include a reference to "company secretary" in the index! A passably good first introduction (good on international comparisons) but lacks discussion of some of the arguments that are developing -- and the writing is often very clunky -- so it requires supplementing with other texts.

This is a great read, and has great case studies to accompany.
The book can be given a quick read, and believe me, it is very interesting!

Format: Paperback
I bought this book because it was the main text for my postgraduate course on corporate governance which is taught by professor Mallin herself. So, I liked the section of social responsible investments and the governance tools for institutional investors.
