Editorial Reviews

Review

The organization of the material is quite good. Taking a contract from beginning to end is a very logical approach to learning about contracts. There is no extraneous material. The depth of the content is also quite appropriate.

I would probably consider adopting the book even without changes, as it looks like a very interesting and easy to read book on contract law targeted specifically for paralegals, and such a book is fairly rare right now.

I did not care for the style of writing. I sold this one on Amazon, and bought a contract book for paralegals from Aspen Publishers.

I am currently taking this class online and find the support minimal. There are no explanations after the exercises which are throughout the chapters. The book appears on the onset to be well organised but the writing is confusing and I find myself frequently researching online through other avenues to unravel what has been written.

I am attempting to find another book to supplement this so I can understand fully what they are attempting to say.

This book is written in legalese. It should have been written in laymen's style so people can understand it. For example, this section, which attempts to illustrate one party (out of three) dropping out of an agreement, reads like a tongue twister:

"Anthony promised Best and Century that he would discharge Best from its duty to complete the remodeling and he would pay Century what Best owed Century for the materials if Best promised to discharge Anthony from his duty to pay Best and Century promised to discharge Best from Best's duty to pay Century."

There is 600 pages of this. Have fun.

Do not buy this book used without the computer codes if you are going to be using an online supplement - it either will not have codes or they will be expired and you will have to pay extra to buy them from the publisher.

Easy to read and understand. My rental copy had lots of highlights and on page pen markings, but that was ok. I chose to go the rental route and I would strongly encourage others to do the same. The price new is outrageous, going the rental route is a smarter way to go.
