    Wonderful Resource

    The authors have managed to create a book that is enjoyable to read and easy to understand. It contains a wealth of information on contracts and links to research sites. It is almost a course in itself that barely requires an instructor if the reader focuses on each chapter. Whether the reader is a student, a general reader or a legal professional, I cannot imagine a more interesting or detailed book on the subject of contracts.
