Praise for a previous edition.

“With these complications, a redoubtable vade mecum is required. Fortunately, Sealy and Milman’s Annotated Guide to the Insolvency Legislation has been providing this help since the first edition was published in 1987 in the wake of the Act coming into force. Over the years, the work has grown to occupy the space of two volumes and, in its latest 20th edition, over 3000 pages of closely packed text. As a repository of annotated commentary on both corporate and personal insolvency law, the work is the authority on the law and practice in insolvency, its credentials underpinned by the eminence of the authors.”

Paul Omar, review in the Journal of Business Law – J.B.L. 2018, 2, 189-191
