Product description

Review

"This book's annotated cases are its strongest feature. They are excellent and provide outstanding explanations of the case, the participants, the court and the evidence. They are outstanding."

"One should start by saying that this book has attained the status as the "gold standard" of books on construction law. It is, perhaps, the most widely used college text on the subject and is one of the most widely used reference works for construction industry professionals.... The book should be a highly valued part of every construction professional's library."
