4.0 out of 5 stars Once again, a very good book
This new edition definitely keeps up to expectations. It's a very good book indeed, and the practical approach of the previous editions has been preserved: it's full of tables, explanatory charts, memorandum for turnover thresholds and so on. The good point of hte book is the balance between the scope of the subject (actually the whole subject is covered, from mergers to...

1.0 out of 5 stars HORRIBLE
as a student this book is absolutely horrible. difficult to read, repeats itself all the time, and the cases are just randomly listed out and described with no organisation and no principle to be drawn from them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Once again, a very good book, 19 July 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Competition Law (Paperback)
This new edition definitely keeps up to expectations. It's a very good book indeed, and the practical approach of the previous editions has been preserved: it's full of tables, explanatory charts, memorandum for turnover thresholds and so on. The good point of hte book is the balance between the scope of the subject (actually the whole subject is covered, from mergers to patents and antitrusts, to sector regulations) and the depth of the research. Even in a limited number of pages Whish managed to stuff in disparate and apparently minor issues - providing a guidnace for further research by way of footnotes and references to cases. This is very helpful for a practitioner who can get a general idea of the subject and then decide to investigate it more in depth. All this, with a very clear and witty style - actually it never gets boring (well, stil it's a law book, but I guess land law handbooks can be worse).
The weak point is that the indexes sometimes are quite unhelpful and misguiding, and that sometimes the facts of the most important cases are not described very well.
But apart from that, it's a very good deal: if you (or your law firm...) haven't got the money to buy Ritter or Faull&Nikpay, and if you think that Bellamy&Child is fairly out of date, buy this book, you won't regret.
