This was my absolute favorite casebook of my 1L year. Aside from a great selection of cases (including many older cases, which I loved), the book includes excerpts from important treatises and articles about contract law, which I found to be both enriching and helpful (though not all of my classmates would agree with me on this). For me, these articles provided a solid framework within which I could begin to understand the law for myself, from its current applications, to its development, to the theories and philosophies underlying it. I get rather annoyed with the impossible questions posed by the notes of some casebooks, and I found this book to have blessedly few of those open-ended monsters. I wish all of my casebooks had such thoughtful organization, well-edited cases, and enlightening notes.

I don't know if it was because I was stressed and in a panic about getting my book in time before classes started (bookstore was out of this...) but I could not find the edition number in the information, so I purchased the wrong one. I blame myself but wish it was more apparent when I was doing my searches. I was supposed to buy the 5th edition as opposed to the 4th but they're basically the same- just make sure the cases in your assignment are in the book- if they're not there you just need to do a little additional searching on your own.

I was fortunate enough to have Professor Hillman for contracts law many years ago. Of all the classes I took and the casebooks I studied over those three years, his materials had the biggest impact on my professional career, and I still sometimes consider the case materials even to this day. (Remarkably, I am not nerdy, but I suppose my credibility is probably now shot for the rest of this review...!)

In addition to teaching the "basics" of common law contracts through a study of the seminal cases in the field, this text also covers the evolution of related obligations (the title is apt, of course) as they evolved in the courts of England and the U.S. This book also highlights and asks critical questions the legal theory that the Law & Economics crowd has been pushing in recent years. Finally, the book covers the growing impact on contracts of the Uniform Commercial Code, which I can tell you is often overlooked by practicing attorneys.

Contrary to what another reviewer wrote, this book and its materials are not obscure or exceptionally difficult. However, they are thoughtful and socratic in nature. The book often cites key aspects of key decisions, and then encourages the reader to develop an understanding for why the court decided a particular way. This is the essence of critical thinking.

As such, this book is for anyone that wants to learn how to think like a lawyer--who really wants to learn the process of critical thinking. This is why a few of the reviewers panned the book--they wanted black & white rules and guidelines. The legal world rarely works that way. And the best law books prepare you for this.

With respect to another reviewer, in general Hillman's book and contracts is not particulary time consuming as studies go. That said, most courses in law school involve a 3:1 ratio for study to class time. Frankly, most practitioners will tell you to expect even longer total hours in the actual practice of law.
????????????????????????
The two previous reviewers of this casebook were probably both right about it - on one hand, it is an excellent guide for covering difficult material if someone is able to glean the broader meaning from the cases through self study. To some extent, that's part of the law school experience for better or worse. On the other hand, this book could have made that process easier, as one reviewer noted.

The cases and discussion, though, are quite interesting and are appropriately edited to focus on the important material. There are far worse casebooks in general use in law school, so I'd put this one towards the top of my limited experience.

That said, this casebook coupled with Hillman's Hornbook (blue paperback) would be an OUTSTANDING way to tackle a moderately difficult subject. I did that and I learned a ton from them as a combined resource. Either one alone just won't be sufficient.

They don't get much worse than this. The book is worthless, and made Contracts almost impossible to understand. The cases are sliced into strange, sometimes tiny portions, making it hard to elucidate anything from them. Compounding this problem, the authors themselves give nothing in the way of guidance before cases, not even a couple of lines to explain cases or put them in perspective. This is the only case book I have had that gives so little guidance in digesting cases or the general material. Essentially, the authors slapped together some articles and case excerpts without adding anything themselves. There are NO endnotes whatsoever.
Additionally, the book is filled with long excepts of law review articles which you can't understand or appreciate. It is pretty tough to learn any legal subject as a 1L from law review articles.
Basically, with this book you are thrown in the ocean and have to swim to shore yourself. If your professor uses this text, I recommend trying to move to a different section.
