This overview of contract law explains concepts clearly and concisely, in an informal, humorous style. For ease of reading and understanding, the book omits footnotes that often increase the difficulty and complexity of the issues. Instead, the footnotes cite cases, with most including short quotations to substantiate assertions made in the text. It also contains numerous examples and illustrations, often with the reader assigned a role in the problem, on the theory that the reader will be most interested and attentive with something at stake. Cross references enable review concepts that constitute building blocks for the current material.
