CENGAGE ADVANTAGE BOOKS: FUNDAMENTALS OF BUSINESS LAW: EXCERPTED CASES, 3rd Edition is an affordable, easy-to-read alternative to traditional Business Law books, offering coverage of essential legal topics, including contracts and sales, in a brief, paperback format.

Of course, CENGAGE ADVANTAGE BOOKS: FUNDAMENTALS OF BUSINESS LAW: EXCERPTED CASES, 3rd Edition delivers all the learning tools you expect in a Cengage book, such as box features, examples, review questions, learning objectives, self-testing, and more to bring the issues to life and help you get the most out of your reading.

The author and publisher should really think about breaking things up a little more. The chapters are way to long to keep anyone's attention for very long. Cases are nice and it brings the text together.
