5.0 out of 5 stars Good General Overview September 18, 2007
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is required reading in a class I'm taking. I've been through several chapters at this point and one quiz. The book provides a good foundation for later business classes. It takes you step by step through various types of business structures and includes a good bit of detail about nuances that are present in each state. I am business illiterate, and I am finding this book a good primer. It is a bit dry and written from an outline, but I've read much worse. I would definitely recommend this to anybody who doesn't know much about businesses and their organization and needs a good introduction. There is not much about law or about paralegals tasks, mostly just sidebars stating that a paralegal will probably be filling out the forms and info on where to get the forms.

5.0 out of 5 stars I got a steal! March 11, 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Although everyone in my class has the next edition of this book, I saved over $100 purchasing this one. We are at Chapter 10 and I have yet to run any problems. This book has exactly the same information, the only difference is the review questions at the end of each chapter.
