More About the Author
In 2008, Bainbridge received the UCLA School of Law's Rutter Award for Excellence in Teaching. In 1990, the graduating class of the University of Illinois College of Law voted him "Professor of the Year."
Professor Bainbridge is a prolific scholar, whose work covers a variety of subjects, but with a strong emphasis on the law and economics of public corporations. He has written over 75 law review articles, which have appeared in such leading journals as the Harvard Law Review, the Virginia Law Review, the Northwestern University Law Review, the Cornell Law Review, the Stanford Law Review and the Vanderbilt Law Review. Bainbridge's most recent books include: The New Corporate Governance in Theory and Practice (2008); Securities Law-Insider Trading (2nd ed. 2007); Business Associations: Cases and Materials on Agency, Partnerships, and Corporations (6th ed. 2006) (with Klein and Ramseyer); Agency, Partnerships, and Limited Liability Entities: Cases and Materials on Unincorporated Business Associations (2nd ed. 2007) (with Klein and Ramseyer); Agency, Partnerships & LLCs (2004); Corporation Law and Economics (2002).

The scene: Last semester of 3L year, herpty derp is sitting in front of her laptop at an ungodly hour. It's Reaping Day at her law school and she's about to storm the virtual gates of registration. At the same time (which means all the time), she's questioning her life choices.
*Herp to self*
Herp: I'm about to graduate and I have no marketable skills. What classes should I take before reality and student debt hit me like a mack truck?
Herp: Maybe M&A? Because I can't imagine an existence more fulfilling than reading 1000 page asset purchase agreements while a pasty-looking middle-aged partner micromanages all life out of me.
*Herp registers for M&A*
...four month later..
Herp: My M&A final is in five days and I haven't done any reading for the class because I suck at life. What does EBITDA mean??!! Is it the name of a short-lived Silicon Valley startup?!! A brand of artisan chocolate made out of luwak poop???!
*PANIC PANIC PANIC*
Herp: I should order supplements. I should order ALL THE SUPPLEMENTS.
*Herp looks at bank account*
Herp: I should order one supplement and not the ingestible kind.
*Herp browses Amazon for M&A supplements when she should be studying. Herp decides on Bainbridge's M&A. Herp splurges on one-day shipping. Herp crams the book in two days.*
...Day of exam - Herp goes in with little sleep and too much coffee. Four hours later...
Herp: I suck at M&A and I suck at law school and I suck at life. Law school was a bad choice.
...Five weeks later, Herp checks her grades...
Herp: I DON'T KNOW HOW THIS HAPPENED BUT I GOT AN A IN M&A THANKYOUBAINBRIDGEYOUM&AGOD. LAWSCHOOLGRADINGMAKESNOSENSE BUTIMNOTGOINGTOARGUETHIS.
Law school is still a bad choice.

This book has a boring storyline with terrible character development. Plus, the medium-sheen pages make it difficult to read outdoors. I prefer pages that aren't this shiny.Published 3 months ago by Mr. J. M. Frawley
