Review

“Insincere Promises is a must-read for law teachers, law students, and anyone else interested in the law of contracts or torts. The authors traverse the forbidding and tangled landscape of the law of deceit, manipulation, mistake, and accident.”—Katherine Stone, UCLA


“Insincere Promises is a must-read for law teachers, law students, and anyone else interested in the law of contracts or torts. The authors traverse the forbidding and tangled landscape of the law of deceit, manipulation, mistake, and accident, demonstrating how the oft-overlooked topic of promissory fraud implicates central issues in the law of contract,tort, and crime. It is clearly written, intelligently presented, and highly original.”—Katherine Stone, UCLA


Insincere Promises advances an important and convincing theory of promissory fraud; it also rewards readers with an illuminating overview of contract law and theory. Written with precision, sophistication, and humor, the volume will appeal to experts and students alike.”—Eric Posner, University of Chicago Law School
