This book is a briefer paperback version of the widely-adopted Miller/Jentz BUSINESS LAW TODAY: THE STANDARD EDITION. THE ESSENTIALS offers the very same traits that have made that book so successful edition after edition - fundamentally that it provides the legal credibility and authoritativeness of a traditional business law book, while also offering the visual appeal and student friendly features students are used to seeing in books for many of their other courses. Though the book is fun for users to read, it does not accomplish this at the expense of important information - it goes into the necessary detail to completely explain law topics.
