"The work is a much-needed, great work of scholarship and fills gap in legal literature. A worthwhile addition to the equity and family lawyers' professional library." - Acting Justice Peter W Young AO, Australian Law Journal
"... wide-ranging, detailed and an excellent analysis of this emerging, or actually, re-emerging area of law. Practical, reassured, balanced and readable ... If ever you as a practitioner have cause to feel that all too familiar frisson of fear in court when 'proprietary estoppel' raises its head, you need fear no longer; not when you have this reassuringly erudite book to hand." - Phillip Taylor
