This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
In “Contracts – The Essential Business Desk Reference”, Nolo Press has published a high quality dictionary/encyclopædia of legal contract terms. A book like this will not make one a lawyer, but rather, make one more confident when reading a contract or discussing contract terms with an attorney. It is well written and gives the reader confidence of authority.
The book has a little heft for a paperback. The arrangement is alphabetical as one expects in a dictionary or encyclopædia and the page edges are marked, visibly indexed alphabetically; a helpful feature in any reference book. It is handsome and should be considered for inclusion by all public libraries and school libraries above high school. ( )
