MSCD Fourth Edition Reviewed in the Law Society Gazette

The current issue of the Law Society Gazette (published by the Law Society of England and Wales) contains a review of the fourth edition of A Manual of Style for Contract Drafting (here). It’s by Daphne Perry. You might recall that earlier this year Practical Law Company recorded a video of me chatting with Daphne (here). (The legal-writing world is a relatively small one.)

Daphne’s review is alarmingly sensible. The word that jumped out for me is “extraordinary”—that’s the word she uses to describe the book. I’m hardly a disinterested bystander, but I think she’s right. It’s the result of the alchemy wrought by Effort × Time. That’s something I discuss in this article on LinkedIn.
