Poor packaging. Book arrived (supposedly new condition) dirty, bent back cover and marks on the front of the book. Not pleased, especially at the price as this was bought as "new".
I purchased this textbook alongside McKendrick's other textbook on contract law, and the other textbook was a waste of money because. His book on Text cases and materials is much more thorough.
Though extensive and dense, it is not excessive or circuitous. Writing is deceptively well-organised, clean and stripped of flabby words. Chapters begin with summary outlines. Arguments are in hierarchy and points are listed. Its expansiveness has been a joy to savour and preferable to gaps in understanding left by shorter and less astute works. A McKendrick argument is akin to the Rubik's cube, turning through the possibilities before returning whole. In study, the book is best supplemented by a good guide book (Chris Turner - Unlocking Contract Law) and your veritable LNB/Westlaw access.
