‘To practise law in the magistrates’ courts without Jones & Buckle is like an attempt to study theology without the Bible.‘
SA Law Journal, reviewing the 8th edition, 1991

‘South Africa’s leading text on procedure in the lower courts, far ahead of all its competitors and, indeed, the only work in its field that is absolutely indispensable to the civil-litigation practitioner.‘
