I have to read this book because I'm taking a course in Hong Kong Company Law at the university which is exactly where the author, Ms Stott is teaching. What I found in this book is an inheritance of unclear and unexhaustive coverage of law that I saw in Ms Stott's An Introduction to Hong Kong Business Law (another book I have to read for the course in Hong Kong Business Law).
We should appreciate that Company Law is such a technical area among the many different areas of law. It is complicated, and difficult to master, especially because of the common law system of Hong Kong which means that cases play a vital role in understanding and interpreting the provisions. What Ms Stott has missed is exactly a complete extract of cases which means understanding of cases can be hugely undermined.
Another thing Ms Stott has missed is a clear explanation of the provisions----the explanation in the textbook is usually short and lacks depth which makes the study of Company Law an uphill task.
The last thing worth being pointed out is the language the author uses. Maybe Ms Stott, being a barrister prefers sophisticated language and possibly wants to appear like a linguist. However, as a student, I will say those flowery language is of no use for facilitating study. I will say she actually sometimes picked a wrong choice of words and could therefore cost students more time to understand her.(And please don't get me wrong. I'm not a student with poor language skills. I actually scored an A for my first year English course!)
From a student's perspective, this book just does not qualify to be a good textbook, let alone a book that can be relied on. If you are told this is the prescribed textbook for your study of HK Company Law, I will do 2 things: one, I wonder why people still adopt such a poorly written text; two, I suggest you to find some more books on the subject, or you may be driven crazy.
