This Manual is divided into two sections. The first deals with sale of goods and covers all major aspects of this subject, extending beyond sales contracts to include contracts for the supply of goods and services. The author deals with the essential concepts of property transfer and respective obligations of each party to perform its side of the contract and the remedies available in default. Statutory protection in its various forms is discussed and the relevant statutory provisions are appropriately extracted for ease of reference. Particular attention is given to more recent legislation, to the contribution of the European Union in this area and to the problems of electronic commerce. The work also includes consideration of recent case law.

The second section, dealing with Consumer Credit, explores the Consumer Credit Act 1974, explaining its difficult concepts with clarity. The discussion is user-friendly, for example in the use of flowcharts and in concise explanation of the calculation of rebates on early settlement.
