Excellent. I review and draft many contracts in my law practice and frequently refer to this book for clear, concise and logical explanation of why contracts are drafted a certain way when it is not always apparent at first glance. I also see contracts from more established firms that commit many of the contract-drafting malapropisms noted in this book and needlessly use confusing formatting. This is an excellent resource for guidance in drafting thorough and clear contracts.
