I'll be mostly honest: I skimmed the last 100-ish pages. The book is very dense, but our professor made it accessible. I wouldn't recommend this as a stand-alone textbook. Having said that, for all I know the other Corp. textbooks are even denser and less approachable.

Arguably the most enjoyable casebook of my law school career thus far. I might be biased because Professor Jackson was a highly engaging lecturer, but the book itself does a pretty solid job of explaining the law in a digestible way.

Bonus points for being relatively slim compared to my Federal Courts monstrosity.

Odd that this book receives such poor reviews. It does at times presumes some prior knowledge if not the lingo, but is otherwise a pretty good and, most importantly, compact guide into the issue of business associations.

I think it was well organized and had interesting readings and selection of cases, but some of the explanations were a bit confusing and hard to follow. You will need the statutory supplement because it keeps referring back to it and doesn't have the provisions in the textbook.

Ugh, law school.

Probably the best book I've ever read on the law of business organizations. Not exactly a page turner, but very illuminating. The section on DGCL § 102(b)(7) could probably use a bit more clarity.
