This is really rather a good book, setting remedies in the law of contract and tort as the underlying method for classifying the entire law of obligations. In particular I found the inclusion of ADR and the like most useful, primarily because it is unusual to find such practical realities in a book on obligations. There is a lot of focus on economic analysis, yet this has not really permeated into the UK courts; sure, in America there is Posner etc giving judgments akin to the principles outlined in academia. This has not happened here yet. However as a student it is always helpful to encounter a book which shows different approaches and the way they work or may work in practice. If you enjoy obligations or advanced torts/commercial contract courses, then get this. I would expect a new edition to probably arrive in the next couple of years, however.
