2.0 out of 5 stars Not so hot overview of Agency & Corp Law Dec 17 2005
By IP Asset Group - Published on Amazon.com
I was unimpressed with this book. Many in my class struggled because of the way the book was thrown together.

My main problems are the lack of explanation for key concepts, other than a reference to a cut-down case and the questionable decision to use cases that don't clearly explain the issue at hand.

I was thrown off at first when I couldn't find some of the cases in Lexis or WestLaw. Rather than relying on an on-topic US SC case or even a Fed circuit case, some key concepts get examples that are unpublished lower-court decisions where the judge makes either the wrong decision or the right decision for the wrong rulings. The book does not point out the error of the court when it does this. Most of the time this happened, my professor would point out that we should ignore this case and learn the concept from a study guide or his class notes. In an ideal BA book, the authors wouldn't try to trick students by giving them bad examples of the law (or without explaining that the examples have faulty legal logic).

If you are reading this review, you are likely either a law student or a law professor. If you are a professor, please think twice about using this book. If you are a student, you will have no choice in the matter. If you find yourself struggling then read the Lexis and Westlaw briefs or get the High Court Summary for this book. My school bookstore didn't have the HC summaries for this book, but Amazon did.

1.0 out of 5 stars NOT THE SAME AS THE 7TH EDITION Dec 11 2011
By Houston Gray - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
If you were looking to save money by buying the older edition of this book, sadly, it won't work.

Every semester when I am told by my professors to buy the new book...I do. But I also buy the last edition (usually for pennies on the dollar compared to the new edition) and usually find that there is no need for the newer, more expensive version. (I then return the new version to the book store for a refund and use the savings to buy supplements.) That is not true with this book.

Difference between 6th and 7th Edition:
Not only are there a lot of new cases in the new one and dropped cases from the old one, but the chapters are organized differently. All you have to do is look at the table of contents for both books and you will see that the old version won't work if you professor is having you read specific page numbers.

I think this is the first time ever, but I highly recommend buying the newer edition of this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Because Amazon Asked Feb. 4 2009
By Eddie Mcguire - Published on Amazon.com
You know that feeling you get when you, say, stub your toe and it hurts really bad and you think to yourself "Wow the things I would give to make this pain stop."

...If you wrote that into a book, then paid to hear somebody lecture about it for 3 hours. That's about the long and the short of it.

Good book if you get off on tediousness.
