The book is well written. The author underpins the analysis with a careful statement of relevant concepts. … I found the book illuminating. At a shade over 200 pages, it will no doubt be a welcome addition to court libraries as well as being an essential resource for all practitioners, especially those involved in civil litigation. – Jeffrey Barnes, InPrint (LIJ), March 2011
This book is an extremely detailed exposition of the slip rule which will be extremely useful to those who have to argue or decide borderline cases where errors have been made in the recording of court orders. – Australian Law Journal, (2010) 84 ALJ 731
