"Carl Stein has done a splendid job in his description and analysis of the new Act, precisely because of his ability to explain the basis upon which the Act has been built. But he has done far more. As befits a lawyer with so rich an experience of company law and corporate life, Mr Stein provides practical guidance as to the ramifications of each component of the Act and the accompanying regulations which have to date received no attention.
For these reasons, this book represents the first sustained treatment of legislation that, unlike earlier changes, particularly the 1973 Act, introduces major innovation for which there is scarce domestic precedent to date, if any. While its primary audience may well be the practitioner and business executive, this book will surely also assist the academic community to parse the myriad of new sections and their implications for the running of a company."

"I find the book extremely well written, but it is the depth of analysis and detail which I find really useful. For example, I found the summaries of stakeholders' rights extremely well done, interesting and helpful, and the discussion on the derivative action really good. The amount of the detail is also evident, for example, in the discussion on the removal of directors, where you clearly state that a round-robin resolution will not suffice, because the director must be given an opportunity to address the meeting."
