Chillin'Competition

Relaxing whilst doing Competition Law is not an Oxymoron

Best book review ever

with 3 comments

As you know, Nicolas is one of the co-authors of a new book on EU Competition Law and Economics.

Oxford University Press has sent me a review copy. I was intending to write a serious review, but now I’ve watched a youtube-review of the book that is much better than anything I could ever write.

Those interested can watch it here: Youtube review of EU Competition Law and Economics

My favorite comments” “it is not too heavy”,  “it’s got a useful index at the back” and “it has lots of footnotes” . I also enjoyed the way the reviewer pronounces the authors’ names, including Nikos Petite and Demien Geraden (although, to be fair, in Damien’s case I think it must be a Youtube dialect; here’s a precedent). ;) He does better with Anne Layne-Farrar’s name.

P.S. This reviewer has featured in previous post here at Chillin’Competition. In fact, he had two nominations to our Antitrust Oscars.

P.P.S. By the way, Val Korah has also written a review of this book in World Competition which Nico is described as an “eminent professor” and a “partner at a famous law firm” (?!).
