Editorial Reviews

"If you as a practitioner are involved in any sort of PI case, (including infant approvals), especially where quantum is an issue, you should have a copy of this book to hand in court, bearing in mind that the judge will have already referred to it. It is indeed an understatement to refer tothis book as both authoritative and indispensable." --Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor, Richmond Green Chambers
