"Reading law books is a lawyer's lot - and a judge's too. Rarely is it a delight, for most are usually verbose and repetitive - with one too many 'cuttings and pastings'. But recently I came across one law book that made me read it cover to cover in one go. It enlightened me. I could grasp the nuances of what I'd believed to be a dry subject: the Commercial Courts Act.
No wonder, Sharath Chandran's Commentary on the Commercial Courts Act, 2015 is rushing into a second edition within no time. Literally.
On his spectacular success in bringing out a brilliant book, I congratulate the learned author and wish him many more editions of the book."
