I've noticed that the gentleman before me wrote a scathing review of Professor Murray's book, noting the typographical errors. While it is true that there are typos - I blame the editors at Lexis - as it is their job to fix such things. Professor Murray's treatment of Uniform Commercial Code sec. 2-207 is brilliantly done, in fact, any of his editorial material is so good that one need not use a supplement. I do wonder why the previous reviewer takes note of the case selection - it really doesn't matter which cases are selected, as long as they are relevant to the topic at hand, and seeing as Professor Murray is perhaps the premier Contracts professor and scholar in the United States today - one would imagine that they are relevant. Rules are more important than cases - unless you go to a law school that, for some reason wants you to cite cases in your exam (with the exception of perhaps Constitutional Law) - you won't be dealing much with specific cases at all. The book is very well done, and written in such a way that it can be easily understood.

it's a textbook, more clear and direct than some.
not having to schlep a physical copy around is great, as is the savings; but there are a few downsides. there are real page numbers in the text, but they are irregularly scattered so you can't really scan through by page number, though the search function mostly makes up for this. the other big thing about not having a physical copy is i often forget about the readings until the last minute.
all in all i would buy all my texts on kindle were they available for a similar price, though i suspect i would miss being able to physically highlight and annotate.

Had a few highlighted chapters, but nothing so bad that I couldn't use it. I personally don't highlight my books, so it didn't bother me (just don't listen to whoever did the highlighting and notes, they probably did not pass contracts). Overall a great price for what you're getting.
