Book Description

March 6, 2009 1599414988 978-1599414980 7
With the prior edition of this concise, up-to-date casebook having been adopted at over 100 law schools, the seventh edition preserves the authors tradition of providing a comprehensive overview of agency, partnership, and corporation law. It also continues to emphasize six basic editorial principles: Be lean but not mean, cases edited ruthlessly to produce a readable and concise result. Facts matter, so they are included in all their potential ambiguity. Bring a planners perspective to the table through extensive use of transactionally-oriented problems.

1.0 out of 5 stars Weak and Confusing Casebook November 29, 2009
By BC114
Format:Hardcover
I have a difficult time finding anything positive to say about this casebook. This book is literally little more than cases. It lacks introductory materials explaining key concepts. Furthermore, the notes following the cases are few and far between. This casebook also seemed very poorly organized. The materials simply skipped around too much.

This book made the class far more difficult than I believe it had to be. It is undoubtedly the worst casebook I have had to use for a class... my copy will definitely be hitting the "used" rack for students next semester.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dont bother buying the 8th edition!!!!! January 20, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book was required for a class & i originally bought the required 8th edition for upwards of $200. After the first day of class I noticed another student with the 7th edition. I looked through his book and realized that the materials were exactly the same!! There is a page difference but it is not at all noticeable. For the savings of $190+,I would recommend that anyone who needs this book for class buy this instead of the overpriced new edition.

3.0 out of 5 stars Impression so far.... Meh. June 7, 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a casebook in the truest sense of the word. There is very little text or analysis or information provided. It's just a collection of cases with a few questions after them. If you've got this book assigned for your biz orgs class, you may very well need to buy a supplement.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE 7th IS ALL YOU NEED! BUY USED AND SAVE $200! July 26, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The 8th edition only has 3 cases(at the most) that are not in the 7th edition. The cases are short enough that you DO NOT NEED the edited (Casebook) version. Just pull them off Westlaw if you need them.

Go buy the 7th edition USED on Amazon Prime for $3. I got a Like New copy of the 7th edition for this price. Use the other $197 and take your date out for the night of his/her (choose one, maybe both if you have $197) life!

If for some reason you just have to have the 8th edition, here is a link to it: Business Associations, Cases and Materials on Agency, Partnerships, and Corporations, 8th (University Casebooks)

Good Luck Out There!

Please post questions in response, if necessary, and I will answer them quickly.

5.0 out of 5 stars well it's a law book.... March 4, 2013

This book seems to include the necessary cases. My professor is using the 8th ed. but I have been able to follow along with the 7th ed. pretty well.

3.0 out of 5 stars Book in old looseleaf binder February 13, 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Because of the quality of the binder, 2-3 pages came ripped out. I don't think I'll ever buy a book in a binder again. I used it one semester.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy instead of new edition November 30, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I highly recommend buying this one for cheaper, instead of the newer edition. I made a photocopy of the new edition's table of contents in order to cross-reference the pages and cases I was assigned with this book's table of contents. All of my assigned cases were in this edition too. I saved a lot of money.

2.0 out of 5 stars junk February 6, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is just like any other law book on the market. It is designed not to help students learn but to keep them somewhat confused throughout the semester. You'll have to buy supplements to really learn the material. Buy it if your prof requires it otherwise don't. Pulling an old outline off the internet is so much more helpful than reading the case book. One good thing is that the cases are heavily edited and therefore short.
