Description
When writing under such a broad remit as this, it is difficult to know exactly what to include and what to exclude. Previous editions have not contained any material on agency or negligence. I have decided to include these because so many business courses include them in the syllabus nowadays. I have also tried to put the law in its practical business context so that the reader knows why the law has developed as it has, rather than simply presenting the reader with a set of somewhat abstract rules. 
It would be helpful if readers would give some feedback about the book. For example, what do you think could usefully be expanded and what do you think could be omitted without any loss? I would also be pleased to learn of areas which you find difficult to understand—I can then work on trying to simplify the text for any future edition.
