Review:

"The paragraphs are concise and to the point; no fluff or excess verbiage. This appeals to me. The subparagraphs cut to the chase - make the teaching point and move on. Class time is a premium, so is a student's study time."

"The authors make excellent use of the chapter cases to support the material in the text." / "The ethical dilemmas are excellent." / "I found the chapter summaries to be comprehensive and useful."

"Managerial Insight: I like them. Students want to know how law relates to them. Consumer Insight: I like them. They illustrate why the student should know something about the law. Their format helps students focus."

"The in-chapter features are so vitally helpful and complementary. They make the chapters more wholesome and complete, in that they help present a more comprehendible picture to the reader."

"The case problems are very good. I use them extensively, and not just to answer the question posed. I typically will discuss about 6 questions for each chapter and these are excellent for helping the students learn how the rules are applied."
