ESSENTIALS OF BUSINESS AND THE LEGAL ENVIRONMENT, 10th is an ideal choice for the one- or two-term business law course that is often required for business and accounting majors within today's business departments. This authoritative, yet reader-friendly text answers the needs for instructors who use summarized rather than edited case and who prefer a "black letter law" flavor rather than a "business applied" approach.

"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."
