Costs are a significant consideration for both the attorney and the client. The Law of Costs in Civil Proceedings is the only book in Malaysia that covers this topic thoroughly. It is authored by a prolific writer who is also an accomplished court lawyer. The book's worth comes from its clear understanding of the law. There are also numerous citations of instances from various countries, including Malaysia, England, Singapore, and Australia, as well as constant references to pertinent statutory requirements. This book will surely be a must-read due to the abundance of information given.
