Dealing and Making Deals is a book your students will learn from long after graduation. It is also a book that should be interesting for you to teach. This is a book that students will enjoy and therefore a book that they will read. Starting with the first edition, students have read Closing and Closing Deals, because the cases, problems and texts not only help them learn what they need to know, like freshmen in law school, but also help solve real-life problems and situations with which they collide. meeting after the final exam.
This was by far my best textbook this semester. It was easy to understand, well organized, and as one of the reviewers said, it even made me laugh! I am so glad my professor selected this book for contracts.
Extra Bonus: The Short & Happy Guide to Contracts (a book with horns) was written by the same authors and organized in a similar way so it is easy to follow / read the sections at once.
This book isn't as boring as it sounds. The cases are interesting and the authors' notes are first and second person. They are often quite funny. I haven't read any other contract books so I can't say for sure that this is any better than others, but I found it very helpful and relatively painless to read.
This was a very entertaining textbook. I'm not sure if I ever said that! I had to take dietary supplements, so I only give it 4 stars.
I am not a lawyer and I have not attended any legal courses. But I've read half a dozen books the average freshman would need, and I really like those "Cases and Materials" books in West Publishing's American case book series. The writing is very approachable and has a variety of great sample cases for any topic you research.
Not too long, not too short. After each case, the authors also ask lots of good questions to help you think through "what-if" scenarios instead of just memorizing a case and result.
The other books in this series on Criminal Law, Civil Law, and Civil Procedure Law are just as good.
