Review:

Architect’s Legal Pocket Book achieves what is very nearly impossible: it humanises the law. The law is an intimidating beast, no less so when configured to the equally complex and routinely truculent machinations of architectural practice. But by adopting a highly effective combination of forensic detail and lucid presentation, Cousins is able to make sense of highly complex subjects and convey their meaning in a simplified way that should be easily accessible to all within the industry. Watch this space, this handy and indispensible guide could well usurp its coveted predecessors and emerge as the essential guide for the next generation of architects and students. –Ike Ijeh, Building.co.uk
