    What is a contract? How can you make one binding? How can you avoid being prematurely bound by one? What remedies are available if someone breaches your contract? These questions and the other important issues of legally enforceable promises are covered in these eight lectures. As you'll learn in these eight lectures, contractual agreements are one of the principal mechanisms for ordering life in society. Professor Cross lays a comprehensive foundation in the practical and intricate body of law that governs contracts.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Business Law: Contracts to be better than the print version?

    There is no print edition. It's a lecture.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Business Law: Contracts?

    The parts about employment contracts because it could apply to me.


    Have you listened to any of Professor Frank B. Cross’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Not applicable


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It was rather funny at times and interesting. It made you think about why the court made the decision and helped you understand the reasoning behind it.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed this series. It is a little dated but gives you what I believe is a brief taste of business contracts. This said, "I am not a lawyer.

  • Business Adventures: Twelve Classic Tales from the World of Wall Street

    What do the $350 million Ford Motor Company disaster known as the Edsel, the fast and incredible rise of Xerox, and the unbelievable scandals at General Electric and Texas Gulf Sulphur have in common? Each is an example of how an iconic company was defined by a particular moment of fame or notoriety; these notable and fascinating accounts are as relevant today to understanding the intricacies of corporate life as they were when the events happened.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes- I have already recommended it to my parents.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    The original book was written in the 1970s. The stories are about business in that time period and earlier. There is a lot of information that is foundational to how business is conducted today but you will also see how it has evolved. The chapter on Texas Gulf was especially interesting to me because I grew up in Timmins.
