It is outrageous that this book is being used in law school classrooms. First, I am shocked by the amount of grammatical and spelling mistakes in the book. Much worse than that, however, the substance of the book was abysmal. There was very little explanation of the sections in Article Nine. The book was mostly the Article Nine reprinted with hypothetical problems. The problems, however, could not necessarily be answered by the information that preceded it. In addition, there was no consistency in whether or not answers were provided to the questions. Sometimes there were answers with explanations, sometimes there were just answers, and most of the time there were no answers. Second, for what was missing in useful information, the authors made up for with trivial information. I am not sure if the authors were trying to be clever, but the amount of useless information in this book astonishing. There was an eight-page article on the life of a Repo Man that did nothing to improve my understanding of Article Nine. For some unknown reason, the websites for the companies in the hypotheticals were often provided. Third, to understand what an unprofessional piece of work this book is, one just has to look at the table of contents. It is five pages long, typed in large font, and contains limited references to find information in the book. The authors still managed in this short reference section to include three entries for the same term (cramdown, cram down, and cram-down) and two entries for John Travolta. Of course there was no reference for something useful like 'Scope of Article Nine.' Finally, no law professor should use this textbook. If a student reads this review because your professor is using this book, beg them to change their mind. It is a disservice to law school students who are paying a considerable amount of money for their classes to be forced to use sub-par material. If I was one of the authors, I would be ashamed to have my name on this book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
