This book could be fantastic. It is full of detail and is set out in a logical and accessible manner.

HOWEVER, if you do use it, use it with a copy of the relevant legislation at hand because it is full of mistakes in relation to section numbers. If you don't have a statute book to hand, don't use this textbook.

Furthermore, considering the number of frankly unacceptable mistakes in a textbook which has been reprinted 3 times since the Companies Act 2006, I wonder how many mistakes there are in relation to the case-law. Common law is harder to check and so I've had to take what the book says in relation to the common law as being true.

So, while this does what it does right fantastically (as would be expected from a Sweet and Maxwell publication), it does also require a lot of attention and personal work in making sure what you read is definitely right. So use with care.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly satisfactory! 2 Dec 2013

i bought some other company law textbook before purchasing Gower and Davies and i can say that the difference is quite clear. there is more in-depth analysis of cases and sections and better arrangement of topics. the paper and finishing quality is improved and better than most. i am so glad i invested in this. i might add though that i found some cases decided before its publication which did not feature in the book. i guess the book must have been with the printers at the time.

very comprehensive, with very good analysis - covers some areas much better than practitioners' texts such as Palmers or Gore Brown
