Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"After 25 years of teaching, including 20 years on Advanced Business Law, this is hands down the most accessible text for my students."

"I especially like the judicious use of narrative and humor throughout the text. Each chapter begins with an interesting and unusual story and the text routinely refers back to the story as new principles are introduced into the discussion. My students don't particularly like lugging the book to class, but they often comment on how much they enjoy reading the book."

"The book is just plain interesting to read without sacrificing sophistication. It's the best business law book out there."
