Media reviews
The approach, as you would expect of these authors, is painstaking, detailed and comprehensive... the book's status [is] little short of biblical...Provides a comprehensive guide to the new systemJust when you thought it was impossible to grasp the minutiae of the contaminated land regime and were preparing to hand the task to someone else, out come a book that breaks it down into a logical and readable style.This can only be described as a magisterial work....this work is highly recommended for anyone who needs or wishes to have a detailed understanding of Part IIA. It is the only work available which attempts to deal comprehensively with the many complexities which are capable of arising now that Part IIA has been implemented. Solicitors' Journal.
