As a student, it is always nice when a textbook is well written. This book was written in a clear manner with the content organized logically. I actually enjoyed reading this textbook because it was so well written that I could quickly get a great grasp of the content. Even though the topic (business law) is rather naunced, I felt the textbook did a great job covering the details and finer points of the law/legal system. Plus my professor (who is the head of her department) raved about how this textbook is one of the best she's ever used so the teaching professionals seem to agree with my analysis too!
Got an A in the course and it was an online course. My online class only utilized the questions supplied by the publisher for each exam so I was able to prepare for each test very easily. I did have trouble answering questions that had real world examples as the book lacked a few details as to how those things could be handled, but overall the book served its purpose.
PRO: Although I cannot say I have read any textbooks of this nature (business law). I did manage to read most of the book (chapters 1-22) for my MBA class. The information is, like others mentioned, presented well in the book without talking above your head. The examples are clear cut and most definitions are equally transparent. Other textbooks of mine are non-traditional as they don't define terms/concepts like a dictionary, but rather provide elaborate examples as to their underlying meaning. Some chapters are rather dry reading while others were more stimulating for my intellectual palette. Try to struggle through these ebbs and flows. Regardless, you need to read the adjoining chapter in order to do the questions at the end.CON: Since I read the text over a large number of chapters, I did run into what became a familiar speed bump on regular occasion. One of the authors seemed to have been fixated on using the conjunctive adverb "however" extensively. There are other words that can state opposing ideas besides "however." I'm not even sure if the two separate commas were the correct punctuation in all cases. Use something else or find a thesaurus.I must say I never had to read so much in graduate school; HOWEVER, I'm glad I read this book. Enjoy!
I was impressed with the style and delivery of the information. Very comprehensive and easy to locate information. Great Intro to Business Law
The book condition posted when I ordered was very good, but it is not true. The book is not worth what I paid for. I just don't have time to return. The real condition is accepted. The front cover of book was partly torn at the edge; a lot of highlighters; many pages are folded (what I hate the most). The book is old and has been used many times.
Huge dissapointment...everything in here can be googled... Just like most textbooks. I did not need this to pass, and it did not contain anything that is not already easily found online
Textbook for a class I am taking. Getting the kindle version saved a ton of money compared to buying/renting the actual textbook, and it is nice to be able to use the search feature!
An excellent book for business students. However, the book can be improved with particular example following the definition in each chapter
