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.

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!

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!

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.

This is a great book. It gives real world examples after every concept so the reader has a good grasp on the concept(which is sometimes difficult with contract language). I highly recommend this Contracts book as it explains contracts in plain language. I learned a lot of practical examples from this book.

Unlike some of the paralegal textbooks I had to buy, this one was very readable and approachable. I loved contract law and it was in part because the book made the concept easy to understand and easy to reference. Definitely worth the money compared to many of the textbooks I have purchased in the past.

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.

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)
