    I am thinking of getting there textbooks out of the following four titles:


    Fifoot, Furmston


    Poole's textbook on contract

    O'sullivan Hillard

    Can anyone with experience recommend me which to pick? Thanks.

    Also, is the mckendrick book useful? it seems quite short

    I can recommend not getting Poole's textbook on contract (although her casebook isn't a complete disaster). I've only read Furmston out of the others, it's okay but nothing special.

    Burrows - Casebook on Contract = the god of textbooks

    McKendrick has published two books on contract - a shorter one and a longer "Text, Cases and Materials". I recommend the longer one.
