Here you have all you need to know and more...this textbook will become the ADR bible. I unreservedly recommend it.
The Rt Hon Sir Alan Ward, Foreword to the 1st Edition
A very interesting, elegant and admirably succinct text
Professor Neil H Andrews, University of Cambridge, Review of previous edition
Whether you are an academic looking for a scholarly insight into the principles of mediation law in civil practice, a mediator, potential participant in mediation either as an advisor or an individual, or even just someone with an interest in the subject, I unhesitatingly recommend this book.
Review of previous edition, Brian Dawson, mediator & deputy district judge, New Law Journal
The book has been well written in a straight forward and logical manner and as a result it is an in-depth and authoritative guide that will be useful to not only practising mediators but also the judiciary, lawyers, academics, students (both under and post graduate) and mediation providers.
Review of previous edition, Mukesh Basra QDR, The Expert and Dispute Resolver, Summer 2014, Vol 19, No.2
...thought provoking and enjoyable...Handier than anything else presently on the market....more accessible to non-lawyer mediators than The Jackson ADR Handbook. In the words of Carly Simon, Nobody does it better. Buy this book.
Stephen Walker, SCMA Advisory Board member, mediation author and full time Mediator, SCMA Newsletter, September 2019
A really good book now in a second edition. Solid information, perceptive analysis and trenchant criticism.
