Extract from a review by Anthony Grant - Auckland barrister

" (This) is a book which all NZ lawyers who have a credible practice in Equity or Trusts should have in their libraries. Dr Andrew Butler and his team of 12 co-authors have produced a book that is practical, easy to read, and sufficiently comprehensive as to serve the interests of students at one end of the spectrum and specialist practitioners at the other."
