I remember Chirelstein from my time at Columbia Law School as a somewhat distant figure, but when he appears in these pages it is hard to describe the sensation produced by such direct and complete access to a superior mind. Combine this with flowing, limpid prose, and the result is profound sadness that such books are so rare.
The book is short enough to read in a weekend, and should be mandatory reading for all first year law students. I read it twice; once at the beginning of the semester and once for finals (its that short) and found in invaluable.
One should note, however, that this book does not reference the UCC. Rather, it is a supplement for the common law majority rules.
Helped me wade through the really confusing stuff, and like i said, i did FAR better in contracts than other classes with more confusing and complicated hornbooks.
I have NO IDEA why they're including a review of the chinese translated version. . .that has no bearing on the utility of this book.
Many of us don't have the time or money to invest in a personal lawyer to answer any legal questions. This book serves the role nicely. With its simple language and highlights of the major points of contract law, it will give good direction when seeking legal council.
What this book will not do is give you everything you need to pass a law school class. I know because I tried. But for the semester I did care, this book supplemented my text and the UCC very well and helped me get an A.
