by Eric Posner

Contract Law and Theory conveys a grasp of theory and policy that makes all of the contract rules easier to understand. By explaining and applying contract theory to a wide range of contracts cases, Eric Posner reveals not only the "what" of doctrine but also the "why" & why one rule rather than another makes sense from a policy perspective.

An understanding of what contract theory is and how it is applied will help you to understand not only Contracts, as taught in law school, but also the many areas of law in which contractual ideas operate, such as bankruptcy law, secured transactions, and corporate law.

An exciting new Student Treatise from an eminent authority, Contract Law and Theory features:

Complete coverage of contracts that includes the principal cases covered in most first-year contracts courses A general explication of the rules of contract that begins with the simplest ideas and gradually builds in complexity A consistent emphasis on the application of theory to doctrine, through analysis of a rich selection of cases A readable and expert treatment of the role of economics in contract law Illustrative examples that point to noteworthy cases Suitable for use alongside any casebook

He manages to explain convoluted doctrines in a simple way while weaving in the policy considerations that help you figure out ambiguous exam questions.
I would recommend this book to my friends. I work in the contract law field and I need as much training as possible.
I think the delivery could be faster.

Really helpful in distilling concepts !
This book is great for learning the basis of contracts and how to draw them up
I would not recommend this book.

After finishing my first year of law school, I was looking for a concise examination of contracts law to read over the summer for review.

The book seemed promising at first. But look no further than the section on unconscionability to see the author's emphasis on economic dogma at the expense of statutory and case law.
