I have never reviewed a school needed book before, since they are usually mind numbingly boring. This book was NOT! It was actually a book that I looked forward to reading, and I think I learned more from this book than any other textbook. I know! Weird! If you are interested in some primary knowledge of business law, this is a amazing resource and probably one I will hang onto.
As far as textbooks go it is one of the better ones I have studied. It is very through with the subject matter and gives plenty of examples. That said, I would not recommend it for condensed summer classes. Sometimes there can be too much of a amazing thing.
Most of this textbook is filler - page after page of court opinions and sample statutes not directly relevant to the text. Another issue is spelling and grammar, as the book includes alarmingly frequent misspellings. While providing a generally decent overview of the locations of law, the book is at times diminished by an anti-American and social justice agenda. Chapters with less editorialization by the author, such as the chapter on Estates and Probate, are quite informative.
the first half of the book was in amazing condition, however once turned over the back of the cover was bent and some of the pages were ripped in half and crumpled. quite a allow down being school is starting up again in a few days and my textbook is absolutely disgusting, I don't even wanna touch it.
This is an perfect book on the topic of zone law and easily readable by the general book-reading audience. The of the book is beautiful hefty, given the book is only 276 pages (about 1/2" thick) and is not a textbook (for which you would expect a $100+ tag). That being said, if you are a zone aficionado (are you listening former Trekkies?) and you wish to learn about the developments in this relatively fresh discipline of law, "An Introduction to Zone Law" is the book to read (and probably the only book of its kind on the shop as of this review). One negative point has to be made, which is why I gave this book a 4-star rating and not a 5-star rating: The author often refers to reference publications in their original languages and no translations into English. I found this somewhat frustrating and a small bizarre, because the book is directed to an English-language audience. Except for this literary peculiarity, I found the book to be quite interesting on a fascinating topic that is rarely publicized.
Textbook was fine all year. As I am now at the end of the semester, we've reached the end of the book. The latest 60 or so pages are not from the textbook. They mistakenly have pages from what I assume in an employment law textbook instead of the latest section of environmental law. Very disappointed in this product because of this.
It is real that the book refers to all external publications, maxims and reference works in their original language - whilst this might represent a slight hindrance, the reason being is that the book is directed towards the legal community and is classed as a research publication (thus explaining the hefty tag).The book does raise the bar on legal excellence as it is a prime example of a highly distinguished smart author who possesses a rich vocabulary and in depth insight into the topic (being also the author of Air Law)On a side note I would imagine that knowledge of french and german would be of an advantage if you wish to have fun the few references to works and quotes that are created but nevertheless this should not deter you as I have enjoyed the book even though I have limited knowledge of FrenchI agree however, with the reviewer below that it is well written and is an perfect choice for someone interested in topic whether your a layman or legal student or legal e text is clear, precise, and short given it is an introduction. It is the recommended text for a course in zone law which I am taking. The text does incl. as annexes the relevant treaties but I would just acquire the combined Outer Zone Treaty text from:[...]A 66 page document with all the relevant 5 or 6 treaties such as Outer Zone Treaty, Liability Convention, Rescue Agreement, Moon Agreement etc. which I would read in connection with the ascribed chapters
Did I really just $70 for a pdf without a Find function? I can't annotate the text. The only method to change the text size is to zoom in. What an poor interface. I have purchased kindle versions for $1 that let me to search, change text, annotate etc. but for $70 the publisher could not be bothered to create a textbook easier to read on a kindle.
There isn't very a lot of books out there on the topic of Zone Law, probably because there is such small advancement on the topic since the original signing of the Outer Zone Treaty of 1967; a treaty that ended a lot of silly things like high altitude nuclear bomb tests, and also created arming of satellites illegal. The book reads like stereo instructions, but I'm sure that's how lawyers like their books, judging by what small law I have studied.
I recommend it every time I lecture to the entrepreneur MBAs at MIT and HEC ParisToday I got another unsolicited email from one of the students mentioning this book has "proven useful countless times"This book and some of the Steve Blank material, key sources for any entrepreneurGet the paper ver if you can and place it on your desk for simple reference
This covers the primary fundamentals of starting a business. From formation to exit, and necessary problem in between. Hold in mind that this is not a step by step tutorial or technical book. It is a primer on the broad problems that affect a business.

This book goes into amazing detail about all aspects of Business Law. Anyone who currently owns a business or is thinking about opening a business needs to read this book, or at least have it near by as a reference ever, the book is certainly aimed at Corporate USA and those who are looking to begin up a BIG business. If you are looking to begin or currently own a Little Business, then there are better books on the shop that are tailored more to your needs.
I've been a CEO for 17 years, and recently became involved with another startup company. Although there was an attorney on the board, I wasn't certain that the corporate form that had been selected was optimal. This book was recommended by the Stanford Center for Entrepreneurship as a amazing resource, so I picked it up. It has turned out to be very valuable. After reading the chapter on corporate form we switched from an LLC to a C Corp. I found myself advising some beautiful intelligent lawyers on this e book covers a lot of other subjects relevant to startup companies, such as selecting an attorney, forming a board, and developing a stock options plan. What I like most is the authors' ability to provide just the right amount of background info (unavoidable when discussing legal issues) and immediately demonstrating practical implications. There are some useful charts outlining different approaches and their pros and cons: for example, I found the chart on corporate forms (LLC vs. C corp. vs. S corp., etc.) e authors use numerous real-life case studies to bring concepts to life. Also, a very nice feature of the book is a substantial fictitious case study that is advanced at the end of every chapter, illustrating that chapter's key e chapter organization of the book by subject makes it simple to pick and choose the sections you wish to read. The of the chapters is a amazing roadmap for the in which an entrepreneur would wish to consider the issues. The chapter on choosing and managing a lawyer will itself save you far more than you'll spend on this book.
This is an perfect tutorial for the do-it-yourself entrepreneur. It is a step by step tutorial for getting your business started. It also addresses the methods for getting amazing service from legal firms and others and how they work. Overall, I really enjoyed this text and would highly recommend it to others.
I bought this book for my Business Law class. The issue of this book is not that it's not good, instead, is that it's too amazing to read. With dozens of terms and actual court cases covered in the book, trying to finish the assigned chapter before class becomes a really challenging and, sometimes, frustrating task. On the other hand, if you really like this course, this may be the best business law textbook out there. You can really understand the logic behind the law and how the business law has developed to promote fair, justice, and ethic in the US through the reading. I give it a 4 star because 1) as others have mentioned, there are not too a lot of things designed to support you read, like bold terms or locations to take notes; 2) this book may not be the right one for those who just wish to obtain an idea of biz law and obtain back to work.
This book is for Santa Monica College. It doesnt have everything in it that I need for my class. As much as I need this book in to pass my class, it will be going back to the seller. If they would have said that the book for for a specific school I would not have to waste my time sending it back and waiting for another to arrive.
if you're looking at this book you probably need to it for a class you're taking. I'm taking for Business Law /Universal Commercial Code. The book isn't the easiest read but the chapters are set up well enough. There are a lot of subjects covered and you obtain a few amazing examples of the subjects discussed in the form of actual court cases. I'd give the book a higher rating if it were broken down a small better. The pages are densely packed and the definitions aren't bolded but typically italicized so they don't really stand out when you're reading through a second time. but if you have to it you have to it. never tried the DVDs but I'm sure they're helpful.
A thorough overview of a patent, and where patents fit within the legal realm of intellectual property and strategy. I used this text for a patent law course, to supplement the teachings. The text contains supreme court cases that give an overview of the history of patent requirements.
A clear, easy-to-read piece of work. It provides primary structure of economic analysis of law and easy examples that support you to economic background commended to all those who has interested in economic analysis of law.
I loved this book. As a engineer I have several patents and have a working knowledge of a lot of of the terms, but the author does a amazing job tying all the terms together and really explaining the real definitions. He gives amazing examples non-obviousness and novelty...and the case law references do a amazing job explaining areas/pitfalls we inventors typically ignore..that could ultimately decrease the value of our patents.If you are an inventor or looking to start..check out this book.
Amazing for the budding entrepreneur and for anyone looking to write their own provisional patent. The examples used to illustrate novelty and non-obviousness are quite helpful. It provides sufficient depth for an engineer without any formal IP law training.
This introduction to the philosophy of law does an exemplary job of distilling key points in the major perspectives down to understandable, bite-size chunks. It is neither long-winded nor simplistic. An admirable accomplishment.
The book explains the 2 main mechanisms for immigration: family-based petitions and employment-based petitions. Contains info on requirements for various visa types. If you're looking for specific info regarding your own individual circumstances, this book will not replace qualified legal advice.
Solid, solid, solid. I've worked in startups, but hadn't gotten proper exposure to the patent system.I was fortunate enough to go to an undergrad school that had seminars, and I'd go, but I never... really... grasped what was going on ff Schox helps change that - legitimately with this comprehensive overview on the ins and outs of such an necessary subject for innovators and those who work with them. Full-disclosure: I got the possibility to meet Jeff and take his class at Stanford, and it only highlighted MORE just how useful this text is. You don't have to be me or take his class at Stanford or Y-Combinator (though I recommend it) - you can just read this book.A large thank you to Jeff for taking the time to de-mystify what can often seem an almost purposefully mystifying system! Just fantastic. Obtain the book. Obtain the knowledge.
I thought this book was an easy-to-understand introduction to patent law. The key concepts are well-explained and the language is clear. I would recommend this book if you are looking to learn about the basics of patent law.
