This book is useful, as it offers both a theoretical and practical approach to analyzing the problem of takeover law. In fact, Forstinger’s work is valuable in that it always introduces the theoretical approach to a problem, a theoretical analysis of the disposition and a scrutiny of the practical implications of such legislation.
The value of Forstinger’s analysis derives mainly from its intelligibility, as it could meet the needs of either a novice student or a seasoned lawyer in need of a concise approach to takeover law. Another strength of the book stems from the didactical method used by the author, which enables the reader to have an excellent overview of takeover law on two different continents.
The book is divided into seven parts, including an introduction and a short conclusion. The aim is to both convince regulators of future changes needed for the directive and also to offer a concise approach to this very complex branch of European law.
