Short and Happy"? This book is indeed "short" - much shorter than any other student guide. The reason is that other student guides are written to help your students understand their business associations/organizations course, to get them through 42 or 56 class hours. This student guide is different. It is written to help your students understand final exam questions - to get them through a 3 of 4 hour exam. Rather than teaching students how cases and concepts are applied in the real world, this book teaches them how cases and concepts need to be applied in the "unreal" world of law school exams. This is the book to read after students have spent the semester working on law review (Or was it clinic? Or client counseling competitions? Or Kundalini yoga? Or shape note singing?) instead of Business Associations. Learn more about this series at ShortandHappyGuides.com.

Facts matter, so they are included in all their potential ambiguity. Bring a planner's perspective to the table through extensive use of transactionally-oriented problems. It's a casebook not a treatise. No long, stultifying textual passages. Provide the cases and let the individual teacher use them as he or she sees fit. Try to find cases that are fun to teach. Great facts or a clever analysis are always given first priority in case selection. Provide a teachers' manual that goes into great depth, with analysis of every case and, whenever applicable, offering the disparate views of each author. An exhaustive teachers' manual extensively discusses every case and provides answers to every question in the text. One feature that many adopters find especially helpful is that all three editors give their own approach to the cases, showing the different ways in which the same case can be taught. Annually updated PowerPoint slides cover almost all sections of the book and feature an extensive use of data, graphics, and photos.
