Deal Struck is a book that can save lawyers a lot of agony, and misfortune. And, unlike most legal guidebooks, this one is easy to read and simple to use . . . . Just as with his prior books, Ross spent a lot of time thinking about how to present this important information in a clean, visually-appealing manner. But the real value of this book comes from its simple, practical, and powerful lessons . . . . The book is well designed for daily use: 80 pages, and ring-bound (which allows you to easily plop it down next to your computer to refer to as you are drafting your agreements). Lawyers will appreciate the margin comments that flag potential risks (marked with red bullet points), or offer best practices (marked with green bullet points) . . . . Armed with this book you can easily create any kind of contract, yet know that the contract is truly effective. This is a book that will make your life easier, and help you avoid major mishaps that lead to costly litigation. For those reason alone, this guidebook is worth hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars . . . . Frankly, every lawyer should get this excellent guide to drafting contracts. Then they should review it before sitting down to draft any legal agreement. --PaperlessChase
[A] short, user-friendly manual . . . [T]he spiral design, which lies flat, is genius.

As a commercial litigator I didn't draft contracts, but I dealt with many cases that were more made more expensive to litigate because of poorly drafted written agreements. I have long wished that someone would write a simple, easy to read guidebook on how to draft legal agreements (e.g. sort of like Strunk & White's 'Elements of Style').
I had long ago concluded that would never happen. But then I came across Ross Guberman's recent book. This book is absolutely a gem!

Law schools should force every student to buy a copy, and clients who ask their attorneys to draft written agreements should ask if they own a copy of this book, and have read it.
