Review quote

This is a terrific book. Opinionated, written in an engaging voice, ready to introduce secondary material from academic writers and critique the law. The chapters are at a nice level of detail, whilst maintaining a good length for inclusion on reading lists. It could, almost, be the only textbook needed. * Dr Edward Goodwin, University of Nottingham * An excellent introduction to trusts law. It not only sets out lucidly and accurately the underlying principles of law. It encourages students to be critical and analytical in the study of this intellectually challenging subject. * Professor Anton Cooray, City University London * Penner's The Law of Trusts is concise, accessible, and very readable. No book on the law of trusts will pique the student's interest like this one. The book, like all good textbooks, distils and explains the basic principles in a lucid manner. But it does more than this, exploring the key ideas in the law of trusts with a relentlessness that cannot fail to impress and inspire. * Luke Rostill, St John's College, University of Oxford * Review from previous edition You will not find a better student-oriented book on this subject. It is a readable and intelligent introduction to the modern law of trusts. * Professor Robert Chambers, King's College London *
