I am currently entering my second term at uni and have three separate units one of which is commercial law and transactions. Would anybody be able to recommend a good textbook to work from? As my lecturer has failed to supply us with a reading list. Thank you!

Sealy and Hooley is decent and probably covers most of the course. I don't like Goode and McKendrick. There are a few books which cover different bits of what's probably in the course and are good - Atiyah etc on Sale of Goods for example. But if I had to pick one book it would be Sealy and Hooley.

Sealy and Hooley is very comprehensive, but at times provides far too much information. It can be off putting to read through chapters and find too much detail. On the whole I would reccomend it because as I say it covers practically anything, but it's quite in-depth so be warned. It's about 2000 pages if memory serves me rightly.

I think Sealy & Hooley is more of an introductory text (presuming you have knowledge of contract, tort and trusts already)? It is a wonderful black letter law text. If you wanted critique, I'd use Goode.
