I thought company law must be dry stuff until I read this book. Mind you, using Great Novels as examples certainly helps. Pip sets up a maternity wear company called Great Expectations, Sam Pickwick changes his company name from Pickwick Papers to Pickwick Electronic Archives and Scrooge and Marley pass a resolution to charge Bob Cratchit for lighting and heating his garret. It's more like a soap opera, except for the strong legal content and lucid prose.
The disk which accompanies the kit gives you all the documents you need. I test-drove it when I set up a limited company recently, and it all went smoothly....

Does everything it says on the cover. Chatty and light in style, easily followed. Internet-savvy too - includes references to on-line versions of the forms.
Be warned, though, it won't help you with tax or employment legislation, you'll need much more than a slim book for that.

"It does exactly what it says on the cover!" - This sums up my review of this book, and only wish I had had it available when i set up my company. It would have saved me money and hassle.
The book is well written in plain english, and explains clearly everything you need to do to set up a Limited Company in the UK.
There are sample letters and documents included, and it provides links to a web site where current information is provided.

The book claims "website support", there is none. It was written early 2004 so how much is still valid is unclear
