The cases at the end of the chapters are very helpful.

If I find that I start needing to refer back to it, I will likely just purchase a copy.

I had to purchase this for a legal class in my MBA program. I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised. The material was easy to absorb, even for someone with little pre-knowledge of law.

It served as a wonderful overview, providing high level detail that is easily searched using the index. The case studies are good illustrations of the points within the chapters. The questions at the end give the student or reader the ability to apply what is learned in the previous chapter.

I would recommend this to anyone that is looking to learn a good bit about a broad variety of law topics.

I am renting this book because it's a requirement for my business law class. I didn't want to purchase the book because it was so expensive. But with Amazon rent, I was able to rent it for a very cheap price. The book is in a very clean condition. no tears or anything. So far I've only seen a few highlight marks here an there, but that doesn't bother me at all.
I am very pleased with the purchase and I love the fact that I don't have to pay when I have to return this book back to amazon!

I am thankful for your willingness to ship books. These are needed worldwide, but it really counts when you don't have to worry about not having what you need for school. My child has completed this course and thankful to have received the book in a timely fashion. Thank you

I agree with the other reviewer that this book was a pleasant surprise. I bought this for my business law class but found myself using this for my homework in ALL my classes, instead of the books I had for them. This book explained in better detail things that other textbooks failed to.

The cases that they note under different topics really help to grasp the concepts. I didn't realize that until several chapters in, but now I make it a point to read them. (Make sure you take the time -- it helps!)

Unfortunately, I rented this book. Otherwise, I would keep it. If I find that I start needing to refer back to it, I will likely just purchase a copy.
