The intelligibility of the writing and straightforward approach taken by the authors will certainly be appreciated by students of this complex and multi-layered legal regime. --Kate Spencer in SCOLAG Legal Journal
Ian Wise and his colleagues have, in masterful fashion, incorporated the mass of new material which has emerged since the first edition and performed that difficult task so skilfully that the book has grown but little. It remains both comprehensive and accessible, a handbook for the real world. --Lord Justice Munby, from his foreword
