As a student of Business and having a limited acquaintance with law previously, I have to admit that this text is worth every penny. For those of us embarking on an entrepreneurial path, knowledge in the realms of torts, constitutional law, copyrights, cyberlaw, etc. is absolutely imperative.
The text contains recent cases, lower court decision, their backgrounds, abridged text submitted by the court and decisions made by the intermediate/supreme appellate courts. The authors present the text in a format not too difficult to read, but not easy enough to skim through.
Congratulations to Clarkson, Miller, Jentz and Cross for another fantastic text.

Typos, missing content, and errors oh my!
I got the Kindle version after I already had a hardback version for a Business Law class. The hardback version was fine, but what I found in the Kindle version was that the number of missing passages, typos, and errors was very high.
In one situation, one of the cases was actually missing! I was asked to read in class by my instructor, and had to borrow a book after a few minutes of struggling to understand what case he was talking about. I believe that was in chapter 9, but can't remember.
In other cases the formatting is rendered useless, and if things are in an ordered numbered list, they are just jumbled together poorly.
I just found in Chapter 10, several sentences that were cut off, and mashed together so incomprehensibly that I had to refer back to the paper version. I am sincerely grateful I have the paper version because there is no way I could have answered that take home test question with that passage because it doesn't make sense at all.
It is still useful, for the most part, to take to class, but I would not rely on it for tests. The information is just all to often missing, or has typos that render it hard to understand.
I'm actually very disappointed in this because I was going to buy all my textbooks in Kindle format if I could next quarter, but now I'm not so sure I should.

Everyone needs to read
By Carissa Petrey
There were a few sections of highlighting and underlining, but the text was still readable. I am finding this book very interesting. It contains a lot of information-a little overwhelming; however, gives a good overview of the principles of law. It is my favorite book this term. Most books I put back up for sell-I think I am going to keep this one.
