has been a delight to read. -- Mrs Justice O'Farrell DBE *

Lord Justice Jackson had a distinguished career which left a lasting impression on both construction law and practice. This book is a fitting testament to that career, but to only describe it as that is to underestimate the value of this book... this is an eminently readable book on the leading construction judgments of Lord Justice Jackson over twenty years. It is a book which reflects upon the past, but which also remains relevant for the future. -- Lynda Ross, Burness Paull LLP * Edinburgh Law Review *
[A] very valuable contribution to construction law literature... Construction Law, Costs and Contemporary Developments contains stimulating and informative insights into issues in construction law, including Lord Justice Jackson's significant contributions, which will be of interest to those who practise in this field. -- Michael Christie SC * Building and Construction Law Journal *
