5.0 out of 5 stars THE Contract book, can almost replace a textbook., 23 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Text, Cases and Materials on Contract Law (Paperback)
I have spent many words and many minutes in other reviews referring people to this book. It is the perfect companion to a good Contract textbook and could almost stand in for one if you've got good library facilities to borrow a textbook when needed. It's function is essentially to gather all the useful extracts of cases and journals that you need for the start of excellent mooting preparation, essay writing, and those extra exam bits that get you a first. However, it also contains all the useful qualities of a textbook explaining the law and setting cases in context.

Lecturers will continually tell you to "read this case it's very important" and if you dutifully read a 50 page case every time you hear this much hated sentence then you will soon become a very unhappy person indeed. This book solves that problem by giving you hefty extracts of all the important cases without the benefit of some of their Lordship's more thankless musings. I used this method and ended up with a first in my essay and in the exam so it can't do too much harm!

I'm fortunate enough to be taught by one of the authors, Prof James Devenney and you can tell when reading the book that he has managed to translate his great enthusiasm and titanic knowledge of the subject onto the pages. It's written in a genuinely engaging way that makes it a pleasure to use when researching essays and the like, admittedly not quite bedtime reading but in my opinion as readable as it's possible to make a contract materials book. I thoroughly recommend it.
