"...this book successfully tackles the gap for a practical and extensive source of vertical restraints within EU competiton law ... It is an excellent book not only for practitioners and postgraduate students, but it also offers a useful and one-off source for further reseach in this area of EU competition law for academics and researchers as the book reflects the authors' practical, deep and broad knowledge of the EU law of vertical restraints." - Barbora Jedlickova, European Law Review
"The publication of a detailed analysis so soon after adoption of the new block exemptions is welcome." - Valentine Korah, London, CML Rev. 2012
"A key and fully revised reference work that I found invaluable to bring
me up to speed on this complex topic. - Dr Wolf Sauter, Professor, Tilburg Law School"
"Wijckmans and Tuytschaever have not merely updated this book but have also improved it while retaining the best parts of the earlier edition. The second edition of this book may be even more confidently recommended to both academics and practitioners as an essential subject resource." - Jonathan Fitchen, Edinburgh Law Review
