The Closing Chapter contains, in Book One, a sequel to Lord Denning's autobiography, The Family Story. In it he tells with disarming and touching candour of the circumstances of the publication and withdrawal of What Next in the Law and of his decision to retire from the Master of the Rolls. Book Two contains a fascinating account of some of the leading contentious legal issues of the day, in which he has played a singular part.
