    5-0 out of 5 stars very good all-around reference
    I primarily work as a structural-architectural engineer and am becoming more and more involved in civil-site work. This handbook is exactly what I was looking for in terms of something that would quickly get me "up to speed" in the fundamentals of civil-site design.
    Of course, no single book could (or should) be thought of as a substitute for the experience and mentoring received from seasoned professionals in a design office, but this one has enough technical explanation and details to get you going with confidence.
    I choose this one over the Colley book (reviewed both before making purchase) as Land Development Handbook has more of the technical info that engineers would seek.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Difficult to follow!
    I am in a class at Community College of Baltimore County and we are using this book at this time. Our whole class along with the Professor find this book to be very difficult to follow. The book constantly repeats itself making it extremely boring to read and is not fluent at all. They have examples that reference charts that are 3-5 pages apart from the problem being discussed the formulas you almost have to figure out for yourself how they are used and there are alot of typos.
    I recomend burning this book!!!!!!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Must Have Pub
    Ever since I purchased this publication I can't stop using it. Every civil engineer should have this as part of their reference library, regardless of your area of specialty. It provides macro to micro scale explanations of general processes, design applications, etc in a very readable format. More times than I can remember I have looked to this book for an answer or at least for some guidance and was throuroughly satisfied. No it is not a definitive reference for civil engineers but its' breadth and usability overshadows any technical shortcomings. If I had to have just one reference book for my area of practice (general civil), this would be it. Yeah, yeah, the "Standard Handbook for Civil Engineers" is a more definitive reference, but I usually find out what I need in this pub.

    ps - Almost everyone of my fellow employees that has used the book has purchased their own, find someone you know who has a copy and check it out for yourself.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent, very thourough book
    This book covers it all. Although I've never used it for actual design, it covers quite a lot as far as verious issues you may encounter during design. It seems to be geared towards the East Coast. Highly recommended book.

    4-0 out of 5 stars A Book for the Project Engineer Engaged in Land Development
    This book is the first book that really reflects and addresses most of the "everyday" issues encountered in site design and land development. It has a practical application and includes most of the charts, tables and nomographs that are necessary to complete a given design procedure. It also provides very appropriate and helpful examples. ... Read more

    Book Description

    Bennett-Alexander and Hartman's, Employment Law for Business, 4/e, addresses law and employment decisions from a managerial perspective. It is intended to instruct students on how to manage effectively and efficiently with full comprehension of the legal ramifications of their decisions.Students are shown how to think and analyze employment law facts using concrete examples of management-related legal dilemmas without clear-cut solutions. The methods of arriving at resolutions are emphasized, so that when the facts of the workplace problem are not quite the same, the student can still reach a good decision based on the legal considerations required by law, which remain relevant. ...

    4-0 out of 5 stars Employment Law for business
    As an attorney, manager, and teacher of human resources professionals, I recommend this book. I found that thie information was thoroughly researched. I also appreciated that the legal information was presented in a business context so that managers who are not lawyers could understand the information and readily appy it to real life workplace problems.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Useful Book.
    This is an interesting,informative and useful book. I used it for school and it will be one book that I keep. Great case studies.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Employment Law
    I think the book is so liberal and it advocate large government. Freedom is not through following the forced laws like affirmative action, ADA, etc. but having a choice especially in employment. Employer should have the say on what they want and who they want to work and not work. The book pretty much tells you that this is the law and its good for you ,so follow or else.
    That is socialistic.
    We are giving more power to the government to tie us down with more laws and regulation. Their responsibility is to protect the citizens and not to do business. That's for the private sector.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Good book for in the class and in the office
    This book gives a good comprehensive look at the mountain of law and regulations encountering employees in both the public and private sector. The examples in the beginning of each chapter are very useful as well as the actual cases used to exemplify how the law has been applied to real-world situations.

    1-0 out of 5 stars So much for objectional literature
    The author of this book had a clear agenda, and made it very clear what her opinions were. I for one am tired of having liberal agenda's crammed down our throats no matter what school I attend. As for the material in the book, well she did a good job if putting every case in the world into one book, but there was no substance in between, just opinion, which I for one do not care for, expecially this politically correct one. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Not Only For Students
    I am using this textbook in several of my classes, and let me just say- it has everything I could have hoped for. The chapters are laid out well, many cases are cited, and the student is given actual cases to figure out, with the citations given at the end so he can find the actual outcome. I've found this to be among the best textbooks. It is so good, in fact that I've reccomended it to several of my friends who are going into business for themselves. This covers nearly everything they'll need to know regarding contracts, secured transactions, warranties, etc.
    Love the law!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Business Law Today by Jentz et al.
    This is an excellent text. It incorporates the law, as well as
    legal research methodologies. For instance, a standard chapter
    contains an outline, common law sources,constitutional,
    statutory and administrative laws/rule-making. The work cites
    computerized legal research in WESTLAW and LEXIS. Relevant
    international legal citations are listed. The applicable
    United States Code is cited by Title and specific paragraph.
    In some cases, individual state legal codes are cited. There
    are exhaustic sets of historical and statutory notes, cross
    references and federal practice notes. Each chapter has a
    comprehensive case study with a brief synopsis, cited case
    and final disposition. There are teaching suggestions at the
    end of the instructor's manual together with discussion
    questions, research assignments and an explanation of footnotes.
    In addition, there is an exhaustive section on essay question

    Here is a model answer:
    Stare decisis is a doctrine that prescribes following earlier
    judicial decisions in deciding a current case if the facts and
    questions are similar. Courts attempt to be consistent with their
    own prior decisions and with the decisions of courts superior
    to them. Stare decisis is important because part of the function
    of law is to maintain stability. If the application of the law
    was unpredictable, there would be no consistent rules to follow
    and no stability.

    The volume has detailed coverage of the following areas:
    o Business Ethics o Int'l Business Law
    o Employee Rights o Employment law
    o Occupational safety o Accounting and the law
    o Securities o Mergers and acquisitions
    o Insurance o Real Estate
    o Financial institutions o Unfair competition
    o Advertising o Environmental law
    o Health Care o Sports and entertainment
    o Hospitality management o Communications
    o Government contracts o Legal representation of business

    Book Description

    Strategies that are effective and legal for putting one’s assets safely out of reach

    In today’s increasingly litigious world, the shielding of assets has become a prominent issue for financial planners, business owners, and high-net-worth individuals. Asset Protection details methods that are both legally and morally legitimate for protecting one’s assets from creditors, lawsuits, and scams.

    Bringing economic common sense and legitimacy to an area that is drowning in gimmickry, two of today’s top lawyers examine the fundamental issues in this growing area, avoiding dense legalese to make the book accessible to anyone. Asset Protection covers everything readers want to know about:

    • Establishing an effective asset protection program
    • Today’s most popular, established strategies
    • Newer strategies that are still being resolved by the courts

    5-0 out of 5 stars Like a good bottle of wine
    Reading this book is like finally getting a good bottle of aged wine after drinking years of fruit punch. From the descriptions of the seedy offshore planners who sell Cook Islands trusts to people whether they need it or not, to the domestic seminar promoters who line up shills to encourage attendees to buy cheapie family limited partnership kits, this book gives a candid look into how asset protection is sometimes shamelessly promoted. Having revealed the dirt under the rug, the book then goes on to address asset protection as a field of risk management and gives the best treatment of fraudulent transfer and bankruptcy preference rules that I have ever read. Just about all the popular asset protection strategies are reviewed, from Nevada bearer share entities to complex litigation expense policies, with the major strengths and weaknesses of each pointed out. The book spends quite a bit of time discussing both foreign and domestic asset protection trusts and their potential flaws (if I were a creditor attempting to penetrate such a structure, this would be the first resource that I would turn to), such that it is a wonderment that those structures are even used at all. Overall, the writing style is good, with just enough technical background on key points to let serious researchers know where to start, without it being overwhelming for the average business reader. Kudos to Jay and Chris. This book is well-researched and provides a level of thoughtfulness and depth of content that has been sadly absent from all the other books considering the topic of asset protection. Big thumbs up!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Layperson Perspective
    Pretty good book. The book counters a lot of hype by promoters of "bulletproof" asset protection plans, which do not exist apparently. All plans can fail no matter how elegant.
    Moderately complex for a layman to read. Some material over the head of most laypersons. Most material practical. Some abstract theory of not much interest to clients.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The only asset protection book you need
    I am an attorney and real estate investor and am concerned about asset protection issues. This is the only book I've read that discusses both the plusses and minuses of various known techniques and also gives excellent big picture advice. Every other book has advocated specific cookie cutter techniques and left me wondering "would this really work if...?" This book tells you why those techniques do not work. Forget about that trust in the Cook Islands, by the way, unless you are willing to flee the country.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Refreshing and funny in places
    Just finished it. This was a very well-written book, although it is hard to figure out who the intended audience is. It doesn't seem like they are writing to potential clients, since much of the subject matter is complex, but it is written somewhat like a novel, with occasional anecdotes, so more than just other planners would get something meaningful out of it. The writing style reminds me a lot of the Burton Malkiel classic "A Random Walk Down Wall Street" where there is a mixture of technical theory heavily laced with enlightening storytelling. It definitely has the flavor of professional editing by McGraw-Hill's staff and is obviously not a self-published work. Anyhow, whether you are looking for asset protection solutions or not, the book is quite entertaining and gives an often unflattering view of how asset protection is marketed, such as seminar promoters hiring shills to sit in the audience and act like they are participants to encourage others in the audience to buy kits. A good fifth of the book seems to be an expose of offshore trusts - you certainly won't read this book and rush out to start your own offshore trust after reading about how some people who set them up have gone to jail. The section on equity stripping is very good, as is the section on offshore limited liability companies. This book has ample diagrams to help explain complicated strategies, but the part on advanced methodologies whetted my appetite to learn more and I wish that several additional chapters had been devoted to these topics. It is refreshing to finally see a book whose treatment of asset protection goes beyond "just hire me to hide your money overseas" as so many of the books heretofore have done.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Very solid
    This is a very different book about asset protection. It is factual and technical and seems to be written more as a guide to professionals to implement asset protection plans than to the general public, making it the first of its kind. This book does not talk about litigation crises or how the average American is likely to be sued. It does not dwell on the offshore islands where people hide money, and it does not give hints about hiding money or tax evasion. What it does do is give a very good overview of assets protection as it relates to complex legal planning. It talks in great detail about the fraudulent transfer laws and the bankruptcy laws. It talks about how to maximize the benefits of mostly domestic structures, strengthened only as necessary by offshore planning. There is a discussion of captive insurance companies and offshore life insurance, but it is toward the end and does not dominate the book. I think that the best parts of the book were giving an inside glimpse into the asset protection planning world, and showing how the mostly highly marketed structures suffer from serious defects. This is definitely a wake-up call for those who are serious about asset protection, and do not want to fall under the spell of some marketer who sounds good but doesn't really know what they are talking about. We could certainly use a few more books about asset protection like this one, and less of the self-promotional offshore type. ... Read more

    Case law, unless done perhaps by the likes of John Grissam, is not page turning material. However, the authors have done an incredible job of putting very pressing and often complex areas into an accessible and engaging book. Written in an easy to use question and answer format, the updated book touches on education legal issues ranging from free speech, to students with disabilities, to internet issues. While of great use for educator (or educators to be), the book could also easily be adapted for classroom use, either as a debate or research starter. Worth every penny of its price. ... Read more

His experience definitely shines through in each page of this work. As an inventor myself, I have truly put this book to the test. With the aid of "Patent It Yourself", I have taken two ideas from images in my head, to patented, finished products that are supplementing my income. This book has saved me thousands of dollars in legal fees and has also saved me from many a headache. I would definitely recommend "Patent It Yourself" to anyone interested in turning an idea into profit. Christine Hanisco - Lansdale, PA

    5-0 out of 5 stars Worth 6 stars
    I have used Pressman's Patent It Yourself since the late 80s to file and process 18 patents, and have saved myself and my business partner (a lot of money) in legal fees. I can't recommend this book highly enough. Pressman is not just knowledgeable, he is a master teacher, imparting information with consumate pedagogic skill. He makes learning of complex legal issues as easy as one can imagine. His prose is often humorous and entertaining as well.

    One recommendation: If you use this book to write your first patent filing, let a patent lawyer review the filing before you submit. This shouldn't cost you more than an hour or two in attorney fees and from my experience can enhance your submission and improve its chances for allowance significantly. I did this for my first several submissions and learned something each time. Eventually there was little the attorney could offer, and I then ceased the practice.

    Wish I could give 6 stars for this remarkable book.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Don't fire your attorney just because you read this book
    One area where I see this book being extremely helpful is in understanding what an attorney needs from the inventor. With a new inventor it can take forever to get the right language to put into an application. If you've read this book though you have a clearer understanding that the whole idea is taking technical language and creating a legal document. If you know the specifics and the structure of the application, preparing yourself to be most efficient with your attorney time is a great way to save on attorney bills the smart way. Having the examples ready, knowing what drawings might be required and understanding what others have already done is nothing but helpful in the process.

    That being said, the intellectual property world has many twists and turns through the process that really only someone with experiences can accurately assess. The slightest mistake in a fork in the road can mean the difference between success and failure, spending a fortune or losing it. So although this book really is excellent (spoken from experience) it cannot replace good counsel. Filing patent applications and engaging in the process of prosecuting them can be expensive anyway, with or without a lawyer. For many steps in the process having a lawyer can save you money by steering you away from expensive, unnesessary searches. Once you have a patent it doesn't mean you're free and clear to market your invention either. Licensing and cross licensing can be tricky. International circles of intellectual property law have even more hidden quagmires to circumnavigate. Many lawyers are so highly specialized that negotiating license agreements is all they do. Royalty structures can be complicated and only experience can provide the most comprehensive contracts. Having an attorney provides great leverage just in presence as well. They know how to ask the right questions and for the most part won't waste alot of time. So bottom line is this helps immensely in making the process smoother and more efficient but don't fire your lawyer if you want to be sure you make the most of whatever you created.

    Most highly recommended, this new edition has important, substantive additions that reflect changes in the law.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Use this book and save thousands!!!
    If you're thinking of filing a patent, David Pressman's Patent It Yourself is an absolute must! The patenting process is fraught with legal pitfalls that can trap even the savvyest, most experienced inventor. This book translates all of the complex, circuitous legalese that lawyers use to make law inaccessible into plain english. Chock-full with diagrams, step-by-step instructions, and tear-out forms, Patent It Yourself is a one-stop guide to patent success.
    I have no legal backround and have successfully filed four patents with this book, saving thousands of dollars in lawyers fees. If you're thinking of hiring a lawyer, think again! The average lawyer charges upwards of $5,000 per patent! Why pay all that money when you can buy a book and do it yourself for only $50? From evaluating how well your idea will sell, to preparing the actual application, to understanding international patent protection laws this book covers all of the bases. Pressman has over 40 years of experience as both a patent attorney and a patent examiner and it really shows! Buy this book, it won't let you down!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Detailed, Informative, and very fun to read
    This is a truly excellent Book. The author guides the applicant carefully through every step of a patent application, unscrambles the legalese into easy to understand terms, and then provides the legal vocabulary again to create professional sounding patent applications. This book is very useful for inventors whith any level of legal knowledge, from the total beginner to the seasoned inventor with multiple patents. Even professional patent attourneys might learn a few new tricks from this book.

He points out frequently made errors and gives lots of tips and tricks. A truly excellent book for inventors of all types. (This review refers to the 8th edition) ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Law Firm Must
    This book has allowed me to answer questions regarding Sarbanes-Oxley quickly and accurately. We plan on ordering the book for every lawyer in the firm.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great overview for those with small companies
    This book is a a quick read, it explains about 3/4 of the Act.

    After reading this you will be able to understand what the Sarbanes-Oxley Act was created to do, how the rules work, who is responsible for what in your company, and what you must do to comply with the act.

    Honesty, for the cost and the time it takes to read this book it is worth it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Primer
    This book is easy to read, straight forward and relatively brief. It is an excellent primer for business people covering the fundamental aspects of sarbanes-oxley compliance.

    1-0 out of 5 stars **Little** you need to know about Sarbanes Oxley
    The tagline on the book and on the on-line discription -- "Everything corporate employees must know to understand--and comply with--the Sarbanes-Oxley Act" -- is clearly wrong.

    The book does provide a "plan-English overview", from about 200,000 feet. In breadth, it does seem to cover each section of the act, but only from an exteremely high summary level.

    I was hoping this would be "Sarbanes-Oxley" for dummies, but it doesn't either have the level of explanation or the wit of most "for dummies" books.

    This book would be useful for someone who needed a very quick, high-level cursory introduction to Sarbanes-Oxley, but to suggest it is *everything* you, your employees or your company needs to know is absolutely crazy! ... Read more
