Reading this book should be a compulsory condition of qualifying as a lawyer. It describes and discusses many of the common phrases that are used by lawyers drafting contracts , in a clear and straightforward way. Many lawyers will have used the phrases analysed in this book without thinking about what they mean or whether they are relevant to the contract being drafted. A read of this book might help to cut down on the unnecessary verbiage that appears in legal documents, but might frighten those lawyers who peddle boilerplate clause without knowing what they mean.
