    This review is from: The Legal Environment Today: Business In Its Ethical, Regulatory, E-Commerce, and Global Setting (Hardcover)

    PRO: Although I cannot say I have read any textbooks of this nature (business law). I did manage to read most of the book (chapters 1-22) for my MBA class. The information is, like others mentioned, presented well in the book without talking above your head. The examples are clear cut and most definitions are equally transparent. Other textbooks of mine are non-traditional as they don’t define terms/concepts like a dictionary, but rather provide elaborate examples as to their underlying meaning. Some chapters are rather dry reading while others were more stimulating for my intellectual palette. Try to struggle through these ebbs and flows. Regardless, you need to read the adjoining chapter in order to do the questions at the end.

    CON: Since I read the text over a large number of chapters, I did run into what became a familiar speed bump on regular occasion. One of the authors seemed to have been fixated on using the conjunctive adverb “however” extensively. There are other words that can state opposing ideas besides “however.” I’m not even sure if the two separate commas were the correct punctuation in all cases. Use something else or find a thesaurus.

    I must say I never had to read so much in graduate school; HOWEVER, I’m glad I read this book. Enjoy!
