BOOK REVIEW: Cover to cover

18 April 2017  

Paul Davies reviews the latest edition of a trusted classic

The latest edition of Drafting Trusts and Will Trusts – a Modern Approach (13th ed) has recently been published and, having accepted the invitation to review this well-known publication I realised I would actually have to read it – not just skim it but read it properly (or most of the chapters at any rate). Although I am familiar with earlier editions of this book I have never read it from cover to cover and I don’t suppose very many people have; after all, I am sure most people would regard the book mainly as a reference book rather than a riveting page turner. That is a pity because having found the time to read it I realise what an educational experience it has been. Furthermore, because it is more readable than most technical publications, reading it did not feel like a great chore. I am not going to try to convince you that this is a book you would want to take away on holiday, but if you did I do not think you would regret it.
