Each topic treated represents an area of specialism in its own right. This book helps fill the gap between the extremes of neglect and detailed consideration in existing texts by providing an authoritative and yet accessible treatment of several complex and technical subjects. Each chapter has been written by an acknowledged expert in the field with extensive practical experience, and where appropriate is supported by comprehensive case studies and worked examples. What this book emphatically will not do, is turn anyone into an expert in the specialist and even arcane worlds of the plant and machinery valuer or the valuation of milk quotas. What it will do, however, is give some indication of the problems and pitfalls associated with these fields.
