Many people don’t realize how important contract law is our everyday life. Contracts are not something reserved for lawyers and executives, but govern many transactions of buying a house or a car, signing up for a credit card or by ensuring that car or House that you bought. If you buy something at a store you entered a contractual transaction. We are constantly entering, enjoying the benefits of and possibly violating contracts every day. If you are running or managing a business, will even more contracts. For this reason, it is important to understand the basics of contracts necessary for entrepreneurs to be able to interpret and draw up contracts. This is where the FREIGHT is. FREIGHT is a leader in publishing books that allow everyone to access legal information. “Contracts: the essential reference Business Desk” by Attorney Richard Stim is an extremely useful resource text on contracts.
This is not the first book I would recommend or try to novice wanting to draw up a contract, nor has this book sample contracts and forms for various reasons. What does this book is an alphabetical listing of everything you can think of involving contracts. It is just an encyclopedia. (While it has definitions as a dictionary sometimes entries are more like an encyclopedia than dictionary).
In addition to the definitions, the book also has examples of contract provisions, such as clauses and contracts that you may use in your contracts that are developing. In some areas, Stim provides some extra information, like the seven pages on trading. Of course, there is much more to negotiation, you can fill the shelves with books on the subject, but it’s nice to have aimed at negotiating contracts.
While you probably won’t read this book cover to cover due to the way the book is written and organised (alphabetical list), is a useful reference to have on the shelf when you need it. And if you really want to know a lot about contracts, read it cover to cover. When there is a contract, this reference desk will allow you to search for contact parts to understand completely the document. Also, if you are developing a contract, but are uncertain about any part of it, this guide will be useful to assist you including proper clauses. If it comes up with contracts on a regular basis, you’ll be glad that this handy desk reference is on your shelf.
