Just what I needed  May 3, 2011
by


I had this text book for my first college course in Business law and without it I might have failed. The text book utilizes real cases and situations to explain virtually every topic. I bought a lot of stuff from ecampus and they always deliver it fast and in great condition. I have never had any problems with ecampus. I would recommend anyone to order their textbooks from here.






Cengage Advantage Books: Law for Business: 5 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.

Summary

LAW FOR BUSINESS offers a practical approach to law that emphasizes current, relevant topics you need to succeed in contemporary business. Cases throughout the text highlight issues such as trademark infringement, computer tampering, pollution, agency, and employment-at-will.

Plus, timely coverage of business ethics and the law gives you new insight into recent corporate scandals and indictments. Ashcroft and Ashcroft use short chapters, a four-color design, real-world examples and applications, and integrated learning objectives to make business law approachable and engaging for all students.

Reviews

"I would adopt the text because I liked how it brought real-world topics into the classroom. I loved the facts and outcomes of real world cases in each chapter."

"My students generally find certain areas of contract law confusing. There have also been difficulties concerning negotiable instruments. I think this book does a good job tacking those problem areas and breaking them down to brass tacks. The cases and scenarios help make the issues clear."

"I see these advantages: easy to read and understand, it isnít written like a law school textbook; excellent coverage of the basics of contract law; real cases--nothing made up; and always up to date."
