3.0 out of 5 stars OK but . . . March 19, 2013
By scicdad
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This text provides information on the basic elements of contract law. In this respect it is acceptable. Unfortunately the examples it uses to illustrate contracting situations are oftentimes misleading -- mostly by virtue of their utter simplicity. In addition, the end of chapter questions all too often focus in on trivial or obscure elements of the chapter's main focus. On the positive side, the cases included in each chapter are interesting and the question relevant to those cases help one get a handle on the basic premises of the arguments therein as well as the final ruling.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book for class... July 29, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Got his book as a part of the required text for my Paralegal course and I must admit, it was an interesting read. The book was written in an easy to understand format for someone without a legal background. Especially with everyone saying how boring contract law can be. It gave many examples of the various elements of contracts and also various supplements to help digest the information. I highly recommend it for paralegal students or anyone who desires to learn more about contracts. As my professor stated... we enter into contracts everyday!! Amazing to be enlightened to that fact!

5.0 out of 5 stars Thorough, yet concise May 22, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book for my paralegal contracts class and I found it to be very well written. There are so many terms to learn in the contract world, and this book describes most of them thoroughly, without making the learning process overwhelming. The book provides concise examples and scenarios that put contract terms into perspective and enhance understanding. And the end of chapter summaries and exercises provided a good review prior to class and in preparation for tests.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tool for Every Day People March 15, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is excellent! It is a tool every day people can use to ease some of the frustrations of entering into contracts with individuals or companies. The real life scenarios are most helpful. The real life scenarios reinforced the notion that you are not alone in your plight....and there is something that you can indeed do about it. I've shared several excerpts of the books with friends going through contract disputes and they too agree this book gave them an additional vantage point they didn't otherwise have.

Don't just take my word for it, try it you'll learn from it!

It does the job. It may not be brand new but the information is all still relevant. The author lays out each element in a way new paralegals or paralegals to be can understand. Definitely recommend.

3.0 out of 5 stars Contract Law November 17, 2013
By Cyn
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It is simply written for easy learning. It covers a lot of contract areas for common law states. In Louisiana, we did not accept all laws that common law states did (i.e. parts of the UCC)
