Hicks & Goo's Cases & Materials on Company Law is an excellent cases and materials book. It is extremely easy to read and explains the key principles in a logical and accessible way. By doing so, it ensures the text remains one of the leading text and material cases on this complex but interesting area of law. [...] it really allows it to be (as Dignam hopes in the preface) the Swiss army knife of cases and materials books. * Student Law Journal *
It is aldo extremely well written and superbly balances commentary with cases and materials. It has an impressive (and seamless) interaction between the materials which is uncommon for texts on complex areas of law like company law. * Student Law Journal *
