Understand virtually any contract and sign on the dotted line with confidence.

Contracts are a part of everyday life now -- you can't download a piece of software or accept an employment offer without having to click "I agree" or sign at least one piece of paper. But very few of us are able to decipher the legalese in these documents, leading most people to hesitate before committing to a contract's terms.

Contracts: The Essential Business Desk Reference is the first book to explain contract terms in language for the layperson. This indispensable A to Z guide covers:

definitions of common terms found in contracts

how to decipher the language of contracts

which clauses are important and which aren't

how to change contracts

Contracts: The Essential Business Desk Reference will help you save money by coaching you on which clauses are important so that you can avoid a pricey professional review by a lawyer. Written in plain English, this book is especially useful for law students and business owners, but still contains enough detail to have a place on nearly any lawyer's bookshelf.
