Well-written and compact. The layout is very strong, with numbered paragraphs and good self-test questions at the end of chapters.
Dr David McGrogan, Lecturer at Northumbria University
One of the best introductory texts out there which at the same time offers complex and thorough examination of the more challenging areas of contract law.
Tabetha Kurtz-Shefford, College of Law at Swansea University
An excellent text - it has a superb way of clarifying all key points; whether it be to a 1st year undergraduate facing contract principles for the first time, or a practitioner who wants the benefit of clarification or a different perspective.
Emma Walker, Barrister and Visiting Lecturer at King's College, London
A concise and current survey of the law of contract, offering a pleasingly clear explanation of key concepts of the law and a usefully pragmatic, commercially aware viewpoint of the law in practice.
Brendan Plant, Downing College, University of Cambridge
O'Sullivan and Hilliard is much clearer than other textbooks I have used... the text is in no way overbearing in regard to its complexity and talks the reader through key principles in a structured fashion, integrating cases to illustrate the points.
