"...the great strengths of Gervais remain its updated treatment of the historical materials, its comphrehensive and readily accessible coverage of the travaux preparatoires, and the ease with which relevant source material for further research may be identified."
Review of the 3rd edition, JILIP
"This third eition of the TRIPS Agreement is excellent. The approach adopted means that the text is useful to practitioner, researcher and student alike. Importantly for a book like this, the index is excellent and so where a reader is unfamiliar with the layout of the TRIPS Agreement he or she can find the relevant provision from the index. Accordingly, any serious intellectual property scholar or practitioner should have a copy (or access to a copy) of Gervais' book. Even though those familiar with the second edition will find that little has changed in large parts of the text, there is enough new material to warrant the purchase of this new edition as it remains one of the foremost expositions of the TRIPS Agreement."
Review of the 3rd edition, EIPR
"The volume provides for scholars, students, practitioners and interested members of the public a concise negotiating history, text and article-by-article analysis of one of the Uruguay Round's most significant accomplishments in a single volume, along with detailed document lists and annexes... In short, Professor Gervais' book on TRIPS is a timely and useful volume, providing well-organised information and analysis of a WTO Agreement the understanding of which is critically important to any trade lawyer and scholar."
