There is good information in here, but this textbook drove me crazy. The chapters are so dense and simply draining. I can't read this book for longer than thirty minutes before I am just exhausted. I was a philosophy major, used to reading dense literature, and this textbook takes the cake. There has to be a better way to present all this information.

I am not the type of person who generally likes to read text books, but after reading this book, there may be some textbooks that are helpful. This books goes over almost everything that managers would encounter in the business world, and it explains the subjects in great detail. What I really liked about the book was that after explaining the material, the book would use real world experiences or cases to explain the application of the law. This is very helpful for someone who is not as familiar with how the law works.

The course this was required for (Legal Issues in Business) was challenging, but the textbook provided a clear understand of the subject matter and gave students the opportunity to excel in the beginnings of a business or legal degree.

As there is always room for improvement, the things that could make this book even better are a price drop and additional international law examples/differences. Most of the content is U.S. in nature, although there are a few EU-related cases plus a smattering from elsewhere around the globe.

When looking at the description of the book words like "minor wear" and "unmarked with highlighter" came up, but when I received the item, that was far from reality. The front and back cover look like wolverine took his business law class frustrations out on it. And the inside of the book like a unicorn threw up inside it. I do not appreciate being lied to, I don't appreciate spending money on an item and getting something damn near useless.

The book came in a reasonable amount of time though it would have been great to set a side note that this book is the International Student Version rather than making one understand that it was the regular student version. Other than that, the book came in prime condition.

Unlike other texts that seem to be pre-law in focus, this text shows the linkages between the legal issues and the manager's concerns and decision making responsibilities.

A text book for class. I can't imagine paying full price for text books ever again. Required reading for MBA.
